MAY HAVE CAUSED YOUR ACCIDENT
Government entities such as the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation can be held liable for injuries that occur as a result of improperly maintained or designed roads. At the law offices of Reiff & Bily in Philadelphia, PA, we represent people who have been injured and the families of those who have been killed on a dangerous road in Pennsylvania, highways and streets in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania.
It is very important to recover evidence and take photos before potholes are filled, trees are trimmed or guardrails added and it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after a car or truck accident caused by a dangerous street or highway. If a defective road or dangerous highway condition was involved in your accident, contact Philadelphia personal injury and defective road design lawyer Jeffrey Reiff today.
The Philadelphia car accident lawyers at Reiff & Bily consult traffic design experts, engineers, surveyors and accident investigators in exposing negligence on the part of a municipality and other government agencies in accidents involving dangerous roads and defective road design. Even in cases where other vehicles may strike yours, further investigation often reveals improper road conditions or lighting conditions played a role in causing an accident. When the shoulder of a road or a curve is improperly graded, when potholes are left unfilled or when stop signs are obscured by foliage, those responsible for designing and maintaining a road can be held liable when accidents occur as a result of such negligence.
