Aside from helping victims of dangerous roadway injuries receive just compensation for their injuries, what exactly can a dangerous roadway lawyer do to help ensure the general safety of other passengers?
Michael was driving to work when he noticed a detour sign. Unfamiliar with the new route, he made sure he was driving with extra caution as he navigated through a work zone, past some construction zones, and through a pedestrian area. Another car went past the sign that indicated they veer to the left to drive on the other side of the road, divided by traffic cones. Michael noted that the driver might have missed it because it was partially hidden by a tall traffic cone. Instead, they went straight ahead, and inadvertently caused severe damage to the bottom of their car by hitting a torn-up section of roadway. Add to that, the driver suffered from a fractured wrist after the car jolted to a sudden stop. Michael stepped out as a witness for the victim of the accident. He claimed that while he was driving extra cautiously, he did not see the sign that was missed until he stopped the car and went to check where the driver went wrong.
After hiring a dangerous roadway lawyer to help her case, the driver was able to receive compensation from the city for the damages to her vehicle and injured wrist. Also, a new measure was effectively put into place to ensure that the sign was clearly visible for all motorists.
That is one stark example of why it is imperative to hire a dangerous roadway lawyer if you have been injured in an accident due to a hazardous or distracting driving environment that could have been preventable. These situations protect future drivers from harm or injury!
