Pottsville Dangerous Road Accident Attorneys

Sometimes dangerous road conditions can cause or contribute to accidents that result in serious injuries or even wrongful death. Since 1971, people injured in motor vehicle accidents in Schuylkill County and throughout Pennsylvania's Coal Region have turned to Lieberman, Tamulonis & Hobbs for help getting the justice and compensation they deserve.

For more than 40 years, ZLTH Law has handled injury cases that took place on notoriously dangerous local roadways, such as Route 61, The Frackville Grade, Route 209 and Route 924. We are familiar with the hazards posed by these and other local roads, and we know the necessary steps to take to uncover the true cause of your accident. Contact us to schedule a consultation for your personal injury case.

What Makes A Roadway Dangerous?

Dangerous road hazards most often stem from faulty design, construction, maintenance or failure by the government to make road changes to adapt to new conditions. Common unsafe road conditions include:

  • Roadways designed with poor visibility near intersection and curves
  • Lack of guardrails or other safety equipment along road drop-offs
  • Improper or missing signage warning of road hazards like dangerous curves
  • Failure to repair potholes
  • Unsafe road construction zones

Who Is Responsible For An Accident On A Dangerous Roadway?

Public entities that build and maintain roads have an obligation to repair or correct road hazards that create an unreasonable and foreseeable risk of harm. When dangerous roads contribute to or cause car accidents, the government authorities responsible for those roads may be liable for the resulting injuries, if they knew (or should have known) of the unsafe road conditions that caused the accident.

Of course, if another motorist's negligence caused your accident, you may also have a legal claim against him or her.
