Dangerous Roadways Attorneys in Los Angeles

Injured Due To Poor Roadway Design? Our Firm Can Help

After being in a car accident, many motorists may not realize that the accident could have been caused by poor roadway design. Instead of directing the fault to the other driver or insurance company, these cases require careful investigation of the environment where the accident occurred. After being involved in an accident, it is important to look at all avenues of the incident in order to determine the true cause.

With more than 40 years of combined experience, our Los Angeles injury attorneys are focused on recovering the maximum compensation on your behalf, whether through settlement or at trial. We can help you determine if an accident was the result of dangerous roadway design and, if so, pursue the necessary legal action on your behalf. We handle every aspect of your claim from start to finish so you can focus on getting the treatment you need.

Improving the Safety of Diamond & PCH, Redondo Beach

Improving Road Safety for Motorcyclists: Diamond & PCH, Redondo Beach

Ekbatani v. State of California – $35,000,000.00

On July 14th, 2012, Amir Ekbatani was travelling along the Pacific Coast Highway when a taxi driver failed to yield at the Diamond St. intersection and collided with him.

Amir was thrown from his motorcycle, causing catastrophic injuries. Despite numerous surgeries, his leg had to be amputated below the knee.

We recovered a multi-million dollar award for Amir on the grounds that the California Dept of Transportation were fully aware of the dangers of the intersection, yet failed to implement the changes that would have made it safer. Since our victory at trial, CalTrans have implemented a double double yellow, a painted medium that prevents early left turns, significantly improving the safety of the intersection.


Types of Accidents Caused By Dangerous Roadways

Countless accidents happen every day on California highways, including the I-15, I-5, and U.S. 395. Even though many motorists exhibit safe driving behaviors, serious accidents can be difficult to avoid due to dangerous roadway designs.

Accidents that may occur due to dangerous roadway design include:

  • Head-on collisions
  • Vehicle sliding or falling off embankments
  • Defective guardrail
  • Lack of pedestrian crosswalks
  • Railroad crossings
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Lack of traffic signals and intersection warning lights
  • Lack of rumble strips
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents

These types of accidents often result in serious bodily harm, catastrophic injury, and death. When this is the case, you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences of an unsafe roadway design on your own. Our team can help you fight for the maximum compensation you are owed in order to assist with medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.
