Unsafe/Defective Roadways

Helping You after a Serious Accident in Kansas City

You do not have an absolute right to clear, safe, crash-proof roadways. Government bodies with responsibility for roads and highways can't be blamed for a nail in the road or for slippery conditions encountered during a storm. However, Counties and municipalities can be held responsible for conditions which persist over time, and which could reasonably have been addressed.

Injured motorists and bicyclists have successfully sued over:

  • Dangerous potholes
  • Patches of slippery gravel
  • Poor road design (such as sharp curves that don't bank)
  • A dead deer that has been on the road for too long
  • Fallen cargo and belongings
  • Incorrect or confusing signs
  • Blind intersections
  • Soft shoulders
  • Misleading lane markings
  • Construction zones too close to traffic

Government entities are waking up to the reality that they are liable for adverse conditions. Bicyclists, for instance, are demanding compensation when they are "doored" because no bike lane has been provided.

The Kansas City area is known nationwide for good highway design and well-maintained roads. When an error is made that endangers the lives of motorists and others, compensation is in order.
