New York roadways are some of the most heavily traveled in the world. When these roadways are improperly designed or poorly maintained, they can cause motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents resulting in serious injuries and fatalities.
If you have been injured because of the failure to properly design, repair or maintain a roadway, you may be entitled to a recovery for your injuries.
Some examples of roadway defects include:
- Debris that was not removed in a timely fashion
- Narrow or missing roadway shoulders
- Gravel or oil on the roadway surface
- Malfunctioning or inadequate warning signs or signals
- Design flaws such as inadequate lane width, blind corners, improper grading and inadequate guardrails
