Most of us drive every day. We trust that the roads we drive on will be well-constructed and will safely get us to our destination. Proper roadway construction, maintenance, and design are critical to a safe driving experience. But what happens when those roads are defective?
If you have been injured in a car accident due to defective roadways, it’s imperative that you contact a lawyer today and get the guidance and help you need. You could be entitled to compensation for medical bills, suffering, loss of wages, and more.
At Chapman Injury Lawyers, we have the experience and ability to help you or your loved ones recover from the devastating effects of an auto accident caused by defective roadways. Since we opened our doors, we’ve been in the business of helping our communities recover their losses from injuries and accidents.
We believe that anyone should be able to receive legal aid when injured, which is why we represent people on a no recovery – no fee basis. We won’t charge you anything unless we win your case. We’re that confident in our abilities to take on the insurance companies, and we are committed to helping you get back to what’s important.
After an auto accident, you’re scared and overwhelmed. Who do you call? Where do you start? How can you get your life back on track after a devastating accident? An experienced auto accident lawyer can answer all of these questions for you and more.
As an injured party, you are likely entitled to compensation, but going up against the insurance companies is daunting at best. The legal jargon, multiple parties, and the overwhelming legal structure of a case are too much to handle on your own.
You and your loved ones need to be focused on recovery, not a complicated legal case. That’s why it is so essential that you retain a lawyer who knows exactly how to fight for you against the big insurance companies.
The insurance companies will try everything to give you a lower settlement than you’re entitled to. They don’t want to face an attorney that will get a large settlement for their clients. They will most likely approach you with a lump-sum settlement that will be much less than you could get with an attorney. In fact, people who have an attorney typically obtain three times as much compensation as those who chose to represent themselves.
There are many attorneys in our community, and it’s difficult to know how to choose the best representation for you. At Chapman Injury Lawyers, we are committed to serving you because we don’t just see clients; we see family. We see our sons and mothers, our neighbors, and our friends.

At Chapman Injury Lawyers, we represent all kinds of auto accidents, and defective roadways are a part of that.

Our roads and infrastructure built by contractors and then are maintained by local and state governments. Our government is supposed to create safe roads that we can drive on each day without any issues. If a roadway is improperly built or maintained, it can create an unreasonable risk of harm for drivers.
Some of the ways that roads can be defective are as followed:
While car accidents can be the fault of a negligent driver or other contributing factors, many times defective roadways are the primary culprit. Much of the infrastructure in the United States is 65-80 years old, which means that many of our roadways are in need of constant maintenance or, in the worst cases, replacement altogether.
However, infrastructure projects are long and costly, if they’re done correctly, and many local and state governments don’t want to commit a large portion of their budgets to roadways improvement or replacement. However, this increases the risk of defective roadway accidents occurring.
Unfortunately, an auto accident caused by a defective roadway can be increasingly complicated because of all of the potentially liable parties. An experienced attorney can help you navigate these complexities and find the responsible party.
The following entities can potentially be held liable:
If the government agency is liable, you have to move fast. While most cases give you a longer period in which to file a claim, government-related cases must be notified of the defective roadway accident within six months of the accident or you could lose the opportunity to file a claim.
It’s not always immediately apparent who the responsible party in a defective roadway accident is. If a warning sign for a construction site is missing, is it the construction company at fault? The government entity meant to upkeep these roads? A knowledgeable lawyer can investigate for you and discover who is really to blame for your defective roadway accident.
Auto accidents due to defective roadways can lead to devastating and expensive injuries or even death. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a defective roadway accident, you are probably facing immediate medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and potential life-long complications.
