Champaign Municipal Negligence Attorneys
Driving on a poorly maintained highway can be a physically jarring and psychologically distressing experience. Unfortunately, a badly designed, constructed, or maintained road can also lead to significant damage, such as property loss or bodily injury from an accident. When local, state, or federal agencies are charged with roadway maintenance, they effectively become responsible for preserving the safety of all those who travel via their roadway, and thus cannot afford to fail in duties of upkeep.

We believe in holding government bodies accountable for the obligations they fail to keep.

Examples of Municipal Negligence
Where highways are concerned, dangerous municipal negligence can take many shapes, and include factors associated with everything from the initial construction process to ongoing maintenance. Some instances of municipal oversight include:
- Missing guardrails or other safeguards
- Lack of signs or other necessary warning signals
- Poor roadway design (sudden curves, steep inclines or descents)
- Potholes; rough/uneven road surfaces
- Unsecured/inadequately cleared construction sites
