Car accidents are often the result of driver negligence, but sometimes other factors play a role. No matter how good a driver you are, when construction work impairs your ability to navigate Georgia’s highways, it can lead to accidents. Poor road conditions and improper road signage also play a role in motor vehicle accidents. For example:
Motorists rely on road signs to provide guidance throughout travel, especially in construction zones. Federal and state regulations dictate which types of signs a construction company must use, as well as their spacing. Failure by a construction company, or the municipality who employs them, to use proper signage may result in injuries to motorists or construction workers.
If you incurred an injury in an accident and believe inadequate signage played a role, contact the truck accident attorneys at Butler Wooten & Peak LLP as soon as possible. Georgia’s counties and municipalities are responsible for maintaining safe roadways. If they fail in this duty, they may be liable for injuries that result.
Civil actions involving government entities follow a different process than those against other companies. These lawsuits have shorter filing deadlines and require special procedures. In some cases, the statute of limitations involving a government entity can be as short as 30 days. For this reason, it’s in your best interest to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Our firm has extensive experience working with these types of cases and will comply with special rules for government agencies swiftly and efficiently.
Whether your claim is against the government or a third party, any actions involving improper signage involve the following:
