California Roadway Design Lawyers

Dangerous Roadways

Roadway design and maintenance are important components of traffic safety. The law offices of Robinson Calcagnie, Inc. have represented a number of clients in cases involving negligence on the part of the Department of Transportation of the State of California (Caltrans), and various cities and counties in connection with roadway design and maintenance issues.

When government agencies or municipalities fail to install and maintain traffic control devices and warning signs, trim trees, fill potholes or remove other obstructions that lead to poor visibility and accidents, we recover damages for clients injured in accidents that happen as a result. Our dangerous road lawyers work with licensed professionals in highway design, traffic safety, surveying, human factors, traffic control devices, and roadway maintenance to determine if dangerous conditions such as defective design or maintenance caused an accident.

If you have been injured in a car accident where inadequate or defective roadway design or maintenance may have been a factor, please contact our injury lawyers at (888) 348-8855 or online today. The attorneys at our Newport Beach, Los Angeles and San Bernardino office locations not only represent clients in California, but in conjunction with local counsel licensed in other jurisdictions throughout the United States.

Holding State and Local Government Agencies Accountable

We have successfully resolved dozens of cases against government entities where defective design and negligent maintenance of roadways have injured our clients. Our work has not only resulted in the recovery of medical bills, lost earnings, and other compensation for our clients and their families, but has led to safety improvements at city intersections, on rural roads, and on high speed interstate highways and freeways.

Determining Damages and Compensation for Your Injuries

Motor vehicle accidents caused by roadway defects often lead to devastating injuries and death. Catastrophic injuries such as brain damage, paraplegia, quadriplegia, serious burns, limb amputation, and severe head trauma can result in millions, if not tens of millions of dollars in damage. To help recover damages, our personal injury lawyers work closely with healthcare planners and economic specialists to quantify both current and long-term healthcare and economic needs. We retain experts and consultants to project long-term expenditures such as in-home care, home modifications, and medical equipment, as well as evaluate lost earnings and lost earning capacity in order to ensure that all aspects of damages are taken into account. We also retain professionals to produce day-in-the-life videos in order to explain the devastating effects of an injury to jurors.
