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.

MILLIONS RECOVERED FOR THE SERIOUSLY INJURED
  • Could A Bar Be Sued For A Drunk Driving Accident?

    If a bar serves alcohol to someone who is already apparently under the influence of alcohol, meaning they've consumed alcohol before they came to the bar or they've already consumed a bunch of alcohol at the bar, if the bar then serves them another drink or additional drinks and that increases their level of intoxication and then that person goes out and hurts an innocent third-party, then the bar is liable.

  • What Do I Do If I Get Hit by a Drunk Driver?

    If you're hit by a drunk driver you have a claim against the drunk driver for personal injuries, but there are some unique issues in a drunk driver case that are not present in your typical automobile accident case.

  • What Should I Do if I've Been in an Accident Involving Road Construction?

    The key thing to do if you've been in an accident involving road construction is documenting the evidence. These cases typically involve problems with the signs that are up and not having the correct signs up, or they're not in the right places, or they're confusing the way that they're set up.
