Why Do I Need a Dangerous Road Condition Accident Lawyer in Florida?
In Florida, it is not enough to simply show that a danger existed and you suffered losses as a result. In order to receive compensation, you must prove that someone neglected to resolve the unsafe situation, and that their failure to do so resulted in the damages and injuries you have experienced.
Our first priority is securing compensation to cover the expenses you suffered as a result of the accident. This can include:
- Ambulance service and emergency medical treatment.
- An extended stay in the hospital.
- Surgery, medication, and other medical expenses.
- Physical therapy, rehabilitation, and other treatment expenses.
- Adaptive equipment and mobility aids.
- Lost wages.
- Property damage, including repair or replacement of your vehicle.
A variety of government entities are responsible for building and maintaining safe roadways across the state. Your personal injury attorney with the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine is familiar with the legal obligations of each party and works hard to determine who is responsible for your accident. Where multiple parties share liability, a dangerous road condition accident lawyer in Florida pursues all of those involved to ensure you receive the maximum compensation possible.
Our attorneys are tireless advocates at every step on the path to compensation. When you need a dangerous road condition accident lawyer in Florida, call us first at 1-800-747-3733 for a free case evaluation. Put our dedicated team and extensive resources to work for you.
Determining Your Right to Compensation After an Accident Caused by Dangerous Road Conditions
In order to determine the amount of compensation available to you, we first conduct an exhaustive investigation into your accident. We help accident victims prove:
- Who is responsible for the design and/or maintenance of the road in question.
- That a specific road hazard existed due to the design, maintenance, or repair of the roadway.
- That the agency or other entity responsible for designing and/or maintaining the roadway where your accident occurred was able to anticipate that an accident could result from the danger posed by the hazard.
- That the hazard caused your accident.
- What injuries and damages you have suffered as a result.
Contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733 as soon as you can after experiencing an accident due to dangerous road conditions. It is important that you receive both proper medical care and legal representation so you can focus on what matters most: your recovery.
Was the Dangerous Road Condition That Caused Your Accident a Result of Someone Else’s Negligence?
Determining which factors caused your accident and who was responsible is key to the success of your case. You do not have to investigate the accident yourself and attempt to determine who was responsible. Our skilled attorneys are backed by a supportive, compassionate team of legal professionals who will build the strongest case possible for you.
Our safety experts, investigators and accident scene specialists are deployed to perform analysis and gather evidence critical to your case. We look at:
Poorly Designed or Constructed Roads
Flaws in the design or construction of a roadway can create unsafe driving conditions. When you are injured in an accident caused by a short ramp, poor lighting, sharp curve, or other design defect, we work hard to establish the connection to your financial and personal losses. We can also determine whether the materials used to build the road were inadequate and contributed to your accident.
Swerving to avoid potholes is second nature to most. However, there are occasions where a pothole is not readily visible or has become too large to avoid. Neglecting to fix potholes on Florida roads can result in serious personal injury to drivers and damage to their property.
Inadequate Traffic Control
Improper signage, defective stoplights, and missing or obscured traffic controls can cause confusion and even accidents. Overgrown foliage and improperly placed road construction barricades, for example, are signs that a roadway has been neglected by the government entity responsible for its maintenance and upkeep.
Other Road Hazards
The government isn’t the only entity responsible for keeping Florida roads and highways safe. When you are injured due to items from an insecure load falling into traffic, for example, or another driver swerving into your path in their attempt to avoid debris on the road, you may have a valid legal claim.
Call Now—Don’t Delay
If you were involved in a car accident caused by dangerous road conditions some time ago and are now experiencing issues, it is still worth exploring your options. The state of Florida’s statute of limitations allows up to four years between the accident and filing a lawsuit.
Each case is unique. We offer a no-obligation case evaluation free of charge to Florida accident victims affected by dangerous road conditions. You will learn about your legal rights and the obligations of those responsible for your accident. Together, we will examine your options and plot a path to your full financial, physical, and emotional recovery.
If you have been involved in an accident, seek prompt medical attention. Even if injuries are not apparent immediately following the accident, conditions like whiplash and internal bleeding can take time to produce symptoms. Then, call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine. You can reach us at 1-800-747-3733 to schedule your free consultation with a dangerous road condition accident lawyer in Florida.
