Kansas City Car Accidents Caused by Road Defects

Road Defects and Car Accident Injuries

While many car accidents are caused by another driver, others are the direct result of defects in the road design or in the physical construction of the motorway. Lack of proper grading, sudden shoulder drop-off, unrepaired potholes and uneven road surfaces can make an accident inevitable, even when the driver is observing the speed limit and attempting to drive safely. Other factors, such as a lack of guardrails, insufficient warning signs or unmarked intersections can also increase the likelihood of a car crash. If you have been injured in an accident through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation.

An attorney from our firm can represent you in a claim for damages, with the goal of recovering a settlement to cover everything including:

  • Emergency medical treatment, hospitalization and rehabilitative care
  • Lost income during your recovery and reduced earning power resulting from disability
  • Pain, suffering and emotional distress

Our goal is to help you receive financial compensation to restore you as nearly as possible to your pre-accident condition, to help you move on in life.
