Dangerous Road Conditions
San Mateo Lawyer: Dangerous Road Conditions
Missing guard rails, broken pavement, inadequate storm sewers leading to flooding and standing water — every year California drivers are injured in car accidents resulting from dangerous conditions and street defects. States, counties, and cities are, like any private organization, responsible for maintaining property in a safe condition.
Was your auto accident caused by dangerous conditions?
If you were seriously injured in an auto collision or rollover, and dangerous conditions on a private or public road were at least partially responsible for the crash, there may be a number of insurance policies and other sources of compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages. Since the expenses associated with a catastrophic injury such as brain damage or paralysis may quickly exhaust any one insurance policy's coverage, it is important to identify all policies that apply.
San Francisco Bay Area attorney Reuben J. Donig has been handling motor vehicle accident claims for over thirty years. As your lawyer he will work to find and coordinate all possible sources of compensation for your injuries. As with any accident, your own health and auto insurance, including provisions for uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, will apply.
You may have a claim against a government agency
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may have the right to file a claim against the state highway department, a county, or a city for failing to take measures to prevent or correct a dangerous condition. Mr. Donig has experience in filing these claims, and warns that the deadlines for filing a claim against the government are strict, so it is important to move quickly to preserve your right to compensation through such a claim.
No attorney fees unless we get results
All cases at our firm are handled on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we charge no attorney fees unless our client recovers compensation as a result of our efforts.
