Virginia Defective Roadway Construction Lawyers

Serving Clients in Richmond, Virginia Beach & the Surrounding Areas

When auto accidents happen through seemingly no fault of any driver, or when it seems like the accident was a freak occurrence, it’s possible that the crash was caused by the road itself. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration conducted a study on more than 5,000 car crashes over a two-year period and found that roadway conditions on average cause nearly 40,000 crashes a year. About 50% of these crashes are caused by slick roadways alone, covered in ice, loose debris, and more.

If your car accident was possibly caused by a defective roadway, you need to call a lawyer—you may be entitled to a lawsuit to compensate for the injuries you’ve suffered.

Since 1979, Breit Cantor Grana Buckner has secured hundreds of millions in verdicts and settlements for our injured clients. That’s hundreds of millions of dollars going toward lost wages, medical expenses, lifelong treatment, disability accommodations, educational costs, and more. Our Virginia defective roadway construction attorneys have helped dozens of victims injured by defective roadway construction get the support they needed to recover from their injuries with dignity, security, and peace of mind.

If you have questions about your defective roadway accident, call our team at (888) 635-9500.

What Is a “Defective Roadway?”

Defective roadways are any highways, streets, or roads that are constructed in such a way that vehicles are not safe on them. For example, a defective roadway could be from a stop sign that’s obscured by the trees on the sidewalk. Another may be a road that becomes unreasonably slick due to weather conditions, resulting in life-altering auto accidents.

Defective roadways could include:

  • Potholes
  • Ignored debris
  • Excessive gravel
  • Lack of warning signs
  • Inadequately visible warning signs
  • Lack of lighting or road visibility
  • Any conditions that are preventable through good infrastructure

Poor road maintenance can also lead to defective roadways. If your local infrastructure is faulty, it could lead to costly auto accidents that cause serious harm. If you need to hold your city or your county accountable, there are few Virginia car accident attorneys more equipped for the job than our firm.
