The Roberts Law Firm, P.C. helps accident victims in Missouri who were injured because of dangerous roadway conditions that could have been prevented by MoDOT or another government agency or city responsible for the maintenance of the roadway. Such dangerous conditions may include poorly designed roadways, defective road design, and poor maintenance of streets, traffic signals, or improperly placed signs or fences along the roadway.
A skilled Chesterfield car accident attorney is needed to determine whether MoDOT or another Missouri government agency is responsible for the injuries and damages caused by the defective roadway. If liability is determined, then a claim may be brought against MoDOT or the responsible government agency that failed to maintain the highway. There may also be claims against other drivers or negligent parties as part of the claims process.
Missouri drivers are entitled to safe roadways that do not pose dangers. If you or a family member was injured as a result of defective or dangerous road condition, please feel free to contact attorney Greg L. Roberts for a consultation.
