Champaign Lack of Guardrails Attorneys
Properly installed and maintained guardrails are critical features of a safe highway, though they are often taken for granted. Drivers navigating roadways at high speeds are at risk of losing control of their vehicles and veering off the roadway or into oncoming traffic. Guardrails help to mitigate the potentially catastrophic effects of such accidents. It is the duty of municipal agencies and construction companies to ensure the presence of guardrails wherever they may be necessary. When authorities fail to install these safeguards, they put drivers at real and immediate risk.
If you have suffered an accident because of deficient or missing guardrails and you need caring, experienced legal assistance, contact the Champaign lack of guardrails lawyers of SSpiros Law, P.C.. We will work with dedication to hold the party responsible for your losses accountable for their wrongdoing.
Why Guardrails are Essential
Advantageous features of any highway, guardrails are particularly important at night, during traffic, or when weather or roadway conditions become dangerous. Guardrails help to prevent vehicles from:
- Veering into oncoming traffic
- Leaving the roadway to enter hazardous territory
- Falling off roads on elevated terrain (mountains, hills)
- Colliding into pedestrians / roadside structures (homes, offices, other buildings)
Missing guardrails expose not only drivers, but any individuals in proximity to the roadway, to the possibility of property damage, serious injury, or even death.
