Defective Road Accident Lawsuits

Was Your Car Accident Caused by a Dangerous Roadway?

When we get behind the wheel, we do so assuming that the routes and roadways we're about to take were designed and are maintained with our safety in mind. It's the responsibility of our towns and cities to provide roadways that are safe and easy to navigate. When they fail to do this and dangerous accidents occur, these municipalities can be held responsible for damages.

If you believe that dangerous road conditions in your community contributed to your car accident injury, then our firm is ready to hear from you. Eisenberg, Cutt, Kendell & Olson has been successful in recovering millions of dollars in relief for individuals and families who have been adversely affected by others' negligence.

Our attorneys are ready to examine the details of your case and ensure that the responsible parties are held accountable for any wrongdoing.

Road Conditions: Who Is Responsible?

Roadways in the Salt Lake City area and throughout Utah must be designed to accommodate a wide range of traffic—including bicycles, motorcycles, all types of cars and large commercial trucks—as safely as possible. When your town or city fails to do this, the municipality may be held accountable for any resulting damages.

Some of the conditions that may justify legal action in these cases include:

  • Fundamentally dangerous road design, including slopes that are unsafe for the traffic mix in inclement weather
  • Damaged or non-existent guardrails
  • Obstructed or poor visibility at intersections
  • The lack of essential warning signs and signals, including those required at railroad crossings
  • Improperly designed or marked bike lanes, particularly near roundabouts
  • Failure of road crews to observe critical safety guidelines and standards when setting up and working in construction zones
  • Road defects and uncollected debris known to UDOT officials or representatives

Dangerous road conditions can include insufficient lighting, improper or obstructed signage, dangerous speed limits, poor road construction, malfunctioning traffic lights, uneven asphalt/potholes, and more.

We're Ready to Face Powerful Opponents

When improper road design or ignored dangerous conditions are at issue, litigation against the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) may be necessary. Any governmental opponent in a lawsuit will almost certainly put substantial legal and expert resources to work in its defense, making it critical to contact an attorney with experience and a strong track record of success.

Eisenberg, Cutt, Kendall & Olson has direct, relevant experience pursuing valid claims and lawsuits against governmental entities and large corporations. We are one of a few Utah law firms capable of matching and overcoming their significant financial resources, and we are driven to obtain maximum compensation in many cases for our clients.

If you or a loved one have been hurt, the time to start exploring your options is now. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.
