Poor Road Design
There is no excuse for roads that fail to meet minimum safety standards. Across Louisiana, several roads, highways and interstates are substandard. Local governments and the state are legally required to maintain safe roads for drivers. This safety begins with the design of the road. When municipalities and the state cut corners in road design, the negligent design can cause motor vehicle accidents. An experienced Lafayette car accident attorney can investigate the cause of your car accident and determine whether a shoddy road design may be the underlying cause.
If you suffered an injury in an accident and believe the design of the road may be to blame, you are probably not alone. When poor road design is the cause of an accident, it is also often the cause of many similar accidents.
