As a former assistant attorney general for the State of Arizona, Lew Moore defended the State of Arizona (ADOT) in many serious injury and wrongful death cases for negligent design and negligent maintenance. These cases require knowledge and experience in highway design and highway construction.
Highway and roadway defects can cause life threatening accidents. A municipality or large company may be in charge of maintaining an area’s road systems and repairing or marking unsafe conditions. Even the most cautious, skilled and prudent driver could be in a life-changing accident when unsafe road conditions are present.
If you were in an accident due to unmarked, unsafe road conditions, you may be entitled to compensation for damages. A highway or roadway defect case is complex and public entities often have immunity from lawsuits. Arizona Lawyer Lew Moore understands the complex laws that govern this type of personal injury case. He has the expertise you need to get the compensation you deserve.
When a Public Entity is at Fault for Roadway Defects
Public entities and employers sometimes have immunity from lawsuits caused by defective plans, designs, construction, improvement or maintenance of streets, bridges, roadways, and highways.
Moore Injury Law knows when such immunities apply and when they don’t. Exceptions to immunity include:
- Injuries caused by a design or plan that does NOT conform to accepted standards of engineering or design.
- Unreasonably dangerous roadways or highways without adequate signs or warnings. This may include failure to post appropriate speed limits, failure to prohibit dangerous U-turns or left turns, and warnings for railroad crossings.
Moore Injury Law can determine if you are prohibited from seeking compensation from a public entity. If you are, we can determine if a negligent contractor or subcontractor might be liable for your injuries.
