Road Design & Construction Accidents

When the Street Causes the Accident

Sometimes, a car accident is not the fault of a negligent driver. Some accidents are caused by bad roadway design or a dangerous construction site. Other times, an accident may be caused by a negligent driver, but then made more dangerous by poor highway design.

At the Arizona law firm of Beale, Micheaels, Slack & Shughart, our attorneys have decades of experience handling these cases. We know when bad roadway design is the cause of an accident. We know how to handle these unique cases to get results for you.

Over $140 Million Recovered in the Last Decade Alone: From cases involving inadequate lighting to those involving unsafe pedestrian crossings, we have handled it all. Our results speak for themselves.

What Type of Road Design Issue Does Your Case Involve?

Bad roadway design can come in many forms. In fact, a problem may not have to do with the design, but instead results from improper maintenance or a construction issue. Some examples of problems that can cause accidents include:

  • Inadequate Lighting
  • Improper Traffic Signage
  • Signs Covered by Vegetation
  • Missing Median Barriers
  • Improper Warnings in Construction Zones

We have the investigative experience to get to the heart of these issues and build strong cases.

We Know Their Defense Strategy

Our lawyers have handled enough of these cases to know that, inevitably, the defense will present the same argument. They will state that it is not an issue of bad roadway design because many people use the same road and did not get in an accident.

Of course, we know that such an argument is filled with holes. We know how to open up those holes by using experts in the field of highway design. We know how to counter any argument the opposition throws at us.
