Roadway Defects in Western PA
Injury lawyers in Pittsburgh
Dangerous roads and improper signage can cause devastating motor vehicle accidents, catastrophic injuries, and even death. All too often, many accidents could have been prevented had the road been properly maintained or designed, or if there was adequate signage warning drivers of potential dangers. Public roads are owned and maintained either by the state, city, municipality or township in which they are located. These governmental entities have a duty to design and to maintain safe roadways. Private owners of roads and lots owe the same duties to drivers and their passengers who use these types of roads.
The Pittsburgh injury attorneys at Rudberg Law Offices, LLC are committed to pursuing claims on behalf of drivers and passengers injured by dangerous conditions of the road, including those caused by:
- Defective road design
- Improper signage
- Improperly maintained or cleared roads
- Precipitous drop offs
- Improper water drainage
- Dangerous intersections
- Dangerous train or railroad crossings
- Traffic control devices or signals
- Construction zones.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a dangerous road condition, contact Rudberg Law Offices, LLC for a free consultation. Our personal injury attorneys have decades of experience representing injured persons in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Please remember that as with any auto accident, any lawsuit must be filed within two (2) years of the date of the accident.
