While there are many valid causes for unintentional injury on the road, Simon Law Group is here to remind motorcyclists that we can investigate and pursue potential claim help your due to hazardous roadways. Susceptible to external factors, Phoenix roadways are in a condition of constant change. What most motorcyclists do not realize is that there are factors that can be used as evidence in the court of law. As with any crash, it is essential to preserve all evidence and thoroughly investigate the scene. Without evidence, your case is extremely difficult.
Here are several characteristics of dangerous roadways:
- Lack of guardrails. Roadways without guardrails or established medians can result in hazardous conditions.
- Poorly maintained roads. Roads that have uneven pavement and/or potholes can be extremely dangerous. Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable on poorly maintained highways.
- Limited or poor visibility. A roadway must have proper lighting to increase driving visibility and awareness of others on the road. Foliage must not block visibility of street signs and traffic lights.
- Dangerous intersections. Poorly designed intersections can include dangerous curves or blind intersections that may result in injury. A review of a street intersection’s history can determine if a specific location is inherently dangerous to motorists.
Proving liability in a motorcycle crash caused by a dangerous roadway can be difficult. Not only is the victim required to prove that the roadway contributed significantly to the crash, they must also prove that the state or city government that oversees the roadway was aware of the preexisting condition, yet failed to repair the roadway. It is advised that individuals seek a Phoenix motorcycle accident lawyer to represent their case.
That’s where we step in. If you, or someone you know, have been involved in a motorcycle accident with any of the above factors, it is imperative that you consult a Phoenix motorcycle accident lawyer to review your case. You don’t have to suffer from high medical expenses. Simon Law Group will provide you with professional advice, and help you receive the legal attention you deserve.
