Dangerous By Design: The Dangers of Unsafe Roads in New York

Most drivers and pedestrians understand the dangers of distracted, drunk, or reckless driving. But how many drivers and pedestrians understand the dangers of the road beneath their car or person? Sometimes dangerous underfoot is at fault for your accident. A common cause of dangerous underfoot is defective design or negligent roadway maintenance.

Several ways to reduce pedestrian fatalities caused by dangerous underfoot include more crossing areas, longer crossing periods, and better enforcement of speed limits. Although pedestrian fatalities increase when mixing with cars on poorly designed streets, motorists may not understand or recognize the dangers of a roadway until it is too late.

Drivers and pedestrians injured in accidents caused by defective design or negligent roadway maintenance may have a cause of action against the state or local municipality for the following defective design or negligent roadway maintenance: insufficient lighting, poorly designed or missing signage, inadequate staged or regulated road construction areas, poorly graded curves, worn or crumbled roadway surfaces, poor or blocked drainage, inappropriate guard rail placement, and unprotected shoulder drop-offs.

If injured in a dangerous intersection or roadway, there is usually a short period of file a claim with the appropriate governmental agency. If hurt by flawed road design, call an accident attorney today!
