Traffic in Southern California can be hectic, and the roadways can be dangerous, even for the best of drivers. The National Highway Safety Administration and the State of California have a number of stringent standards and safety codes that all roads and highways must maintain. Some of the areas where they have requirements include the widths of the shoulders, signage, water runoff, slope angles, and the sharpness of curves. Our San Bernardino dangerous roadway lawyers know even though all of these things have regulations in place, it does not necessarily mean that the roads are safe.
In some situations, road construction crews and companies violate regulations, sometimes knowingly and sometimes unwittingly. Because of these violations, the danger of the roadways can increase, and that means that more people can have car accidents, motorcycle crashes, and wrecks in other vehicles each year. Even great drivers may find that they are on a dangerous road, and they may have an accident that injures them and their passengers.
Many of the roads throughout the state have dangerous stretches and areas, and Southern California is no exception. Each year, there are many accidents on Highway 15, Interstate 10, the 210, and the Cajon Pass. If you have had an accident on one of these roadways, you should call a Riverside dangerous roadway attorney as soon as possible to see if the road itself was a factor in the accident.
If you have suffered an injury due to an accident, or if a loved one has been killed in an accident caused by a dangerous roadway or a defect in the road that should not have been there, it is time to seek help from a personal injury attorney.
