Types of Defective Designs on the Road

While driving, people expect for the conditions of the road to be safe and well maintained. Unfortunately, all too often this is not the case and defective road designs lead to tragic accidents. State and local authorities are responsible for the conditions of the road and if they are negligent in doing so, they can be sued for the poor maintenance. This responsibility is meant to encourage an increased effort to keep the roads and highways safe for drivers. If you have suffered from an injury due to an accident caused by defective road designs or poor maintenance, retain the legal guidance of a Phoenix personal injury attorney right away.
