Poor Road Design Accidents

Florida is home to roughly 20 million people. Most of the population has access to or owns at least one car. Compared to other countries worldwide, people in the United States do not rely on public transportation as a means of everyday travel, but instead use their own personal vehicles. To accommodate millions of drivers, roads and highways must be constructed throughout the state and laws and signs dictate how drivers behave on these roads. While roads are supposed to go through all kinds of safety inspections and steps to verify that it has been built in accordance with Florida state safety standards, this isn’t always the case. Our Fort Lauderdale car accident lawyers are here to help victims pursue claims based on poor road design accidents.

Florida drivers must be cautious of potentially hazardous road conditions due to poor road design. Such conditions include :

  • Misleading or Incorrect Signs
  • Lack of Signs
  • Potholes
  • Cracks
  • Lack of Guardrails
  • Poorly Designed/Placed Guardrails
  • Drainage Flaws
  • Obstruction of Roadways by Vegetation
  • Obstruction of Roadways by Construction Workers
  • Dysfunctional Traffic Lights
  • Poorly Designed On/Off Ramps
  • Faded Road Paint
  • Poorly Constructed Median
  • Close Corners
  • Roads With Blind Spots
  • Poorly Designed Intersections
  • Inappropriate Speed Limit Assigned

All of these conditions make driving more dangerous and increase the risk of responsible, law-abiding drivers to be involved in a motor vehicle crash resulting in injury or even death.

Common auto accident injuries due to poor road design include:

  • Concussion
  • Brain damage
  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Paralysis
  • Paraplegia
  • Scrapes and bruises
  • Spinal injury
  • Neck injury
  • Psychological Trauma
  • Death
Who is responsible?

Because we pay taxes as citizens, it is the State of Florida and the Federal Government’s obligation to ensure that all roads are safe and suitable for all drivers. If any of the conditions listed above occur and result in a serious poor road design accident, it is the government’s responsibility to repair them as soon as possible. If these issues are not resolved and somebody becomes injured or dies, then they or their family is entitled to be compensated for their grievances.

Great attorney and person to know. Came all the way from Fort Lauderdale to help me with a civil issue in St. Petersburg. Thank you for all your help, Rick! Celimar De Jesus
I would recommend Richard to anyone and I would hire him again with out hesitation. I did not know Richard Ansara. I found him on the internet. I live in another state so I had to trust. I left a message. I got a call back from Richard. He invested a lot of time just listening to what I needed him to do. It was not your traditional need. He told me what he felt he could accomplish. I liked his approach and the care he took in crafting his responses to me. I hired him. He went to work immediately. He always stayed in contact. I got progress reports from him on a regular basis. Richard completed the mission and did not overcharge me. His fee was more than fair and we got excellent results, just what we wanted. He seems to be a really good guy. That's important. A. James
