Warning: Roadway Hazard Ahead

San Diego Personal Injury Attorney Steven EliaAccidents happen. We all know that – but the truth is road hazards, like potholes, uneven pavement, and crumbling shoulders can cause the even most careful driver to veer off the road and lose control.

Our San Diego roads are not perfect. Sure, state and local agencies do their best to maintain the sand, tar, and gravel but the fact is roads are put under intense pressure by vehicles and mother nature. Over time, untended to roads fall apart. Decomposition occurs. Markings fade away.

Roads signs, believe it or not, can also become a hazard on the roads. While they are an important part of safe driving, they are just like roads and prone to fading, warping, and general disrepair. A fallen road sign leaves nearby drivers in a very dangerous situation, as drivers become blind to the important safety information those signs are meant to give. Road signs are also targets of thieves and vandals.

It’s important that all San Diego drivers know that if you are a victim of an accident that resulted from a poorly maintained road or sign – a personal injury claim may be needed. The Law Offices of Steven Elia – injury attorneys in San Diego – handle claims that hold the agency, developer, or private company responsible for your damage, pain, and suffering. In some cases, a person who steals a road sign or defaces it to the point of being unreadable may also be sued in court for injuries sustained by a driver as the result of the theft or defacement.

Steven Elia can also help if you’ve been in an accident involving these road hazards as well:

  • Grading highways, road resurfacing
  • Uneven pavement
  • Road resurfacing humps
  • Unsigned curves
  • Construction debris: oil slicks or chemical spills
  • Dangerous intersections
  • Obscured signs and intersections
  • Trees and vegetation blocking the view

San Diego Personal Injury Attorney Steven Elia looks out for your best interest and his notable case results are proof.

"Words can never express the gratitude that my husband and I have for Attorney Steven Elia and attorney Holly Attiq.. For 2 years, we were put through fire with our personal injury case, but luckily we met Steven and Holly, that made the brutal process of litigation as comfortable as it can be for our family. And even after the dust came down, they still check on us very often and offer their services to try to help us to stand back on our feet."
