The absence of proper signals, road signs, demarcations or shoulders can make a road or highway defective. Defective or ill-maintained roads can present a significant hazard to vehicles, particularly commercial vehicles and trucks. These hazards can lead to significant accidents and multi-car collisions.
At McLeish Orlando LLP, we advocate for those who have been injured in trucking accidents due to defective roads and highways. Our lawyers have been recognized for their personal injury services for many years and throughout southern Ontario. We have obtained successful judgments and settlements for clients, and we always work to make certain our clients receive the maximum amount of accident benefits and compensation to which they are entitled.
Types of Defective Roads and Highways
The lawyers at McLeish Orlando LLP have represented people who have been injured in truck collisions due to the following types of road defects:
- Two-graded shoulder drop offs
- Improperly demarcated road lines, including centre and shoulder lines
- Absence of proper signage
- Negligent road maintenance
- Bent, damaged or un-maintained signs
- Overgrowth of shrubs on signs
- Damage from previous crashes
- Inadequate winter maintenance on roads
Municipalities are required to maintain roads and highways so they are suitable for small to commercial-sized vehicles. Without proper maintenance, the chance of a vehicle collision becomes much higher.
Our Toronto defective road design lawyers are experienced in representing individuals who have been injured in truck accidents involving defective roads and highways. We are familiar with the regulations that municipalities and the province must follow, and we can call upon a wide range of experts to assist in the investigation process for determining liability in an accident.
