When you are in a motor vehicle accident, liability is not always black and white. In fact, many motor vehicle accidents are caused by factors such as defective roads, which are completely beyond the control of drivers. Sadly, these accidents often leave the victims of serious injury at the mercy of insurance companies.
Determining the cause of an accident is essential for establishing liability and seeking proper compensation. Establishing liability requires an investigation from an attorney who knows the many things that can contribute to an accident. Bakersfield defective roadway attorney Mickey Fine has over 20 years of experience investigating motor vehicle accidents and would be happy to meet with you for a free consultation to discuss your accident and help you better understand your rights.
What is a Defective Roadway?
A large number of things can make a roadway dangerous and therefore defective. These things include:
- Poor design
- Improper traffic control
- Malfunctioning signals or missing signs
