Not all accidents are caused by one driver colliding with another.

If you have been injured in a crash you believe was caused by a poorly designed or ill-maintained road, a skilled Sacramento car accident attorney from Eliot Reiner, APLC can help you seek compensation for your suffering.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), poorly designed roads are the underlying cause of more than 23 percent of annual fatal accidents in the Unites States. Poorly maintained roads and dangerous intersections can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles or impede their ability to see oncoming traffic, causing drivers to suffer serious injuries. These risks are especially prevalent when combined with heavy traffic or poor weather.
Dangerous roadside conditions include:
In all these situations, the governing body in charge of a roadway — the township, city, county, or state is responsible for its design and maintenance. Drivers who are injured due to inadequate maintenance of roads may be entitled to seek compensation from the responsible parties for losses stemming from medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, rehabilitation costs, damaged property, and the wrongful death of family members. Our firm can examine the circumstances surrounding your injury and determine the most appropriate course of action to pursue.
