Not All Accidents Are Caused by Vehicles or Drivers
When accidents happen on public property, it is sometimes because of the dangerous conditions of the property itself. For example, a design defect on a highway can lead to accidents because a curve wasn't banked properly. The lack of properly installed and maintained guard rails along a cliff or drop off could lead to accidents, injuries and wrongful death.
The attorneys of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, represent clients in claims against the government for injuries caused by dangerous conditions on public property. We not only represent clients who were harmed because of design flaws on roads and highways, we also represent those injured because of the negligence of CALTRANS workers in highway construction zones.
When a disproportionate number of accidents occur at the same intersection or bend in the highway, the design of the road itself may be at fault.
How do you know if the accident that injured you was caused by a dangerous or defective road condition? A lawyer who knows the law and understands the responsibilities of governmental entities can analyze the facts and determine whether you have a valid negligence claim.

- Inadequate drainage that led to excessive pooling of water on a freeway
