Defective roadway design and poor planning have caused terrible accidents in Washington. The attorneys at Swanson Gardner Meyers Cohon PLLC, review every motor vehicle accident to determine If defective highway design played a part.
These cases can be challenging, but we have the experience necessary to determine responsibility and pull a strong case together.
Defective roadway design hazards may include:
- Insufficient or dangerous ramps to and from freeways
- Improper or absent signage
- Poorly marked or absent warnings around construction areas
- Failure to protect motorists from dangerous roadside hazards
For the most part, government entities maintain adequate standards for highway safety. Highway design defect cases usually result frorn state or county road departments’ failure to follow those standards.
