Dangerous & Defective Highways

Product Liability Attorneys: Defective Highway Design

  "All of a sudden, I lost control and the car flipped over." That's all many drivers remember of a car crash. But what caused the driver to lose control?

A surprising number of vehicle accidents are caused not by cars or drivers, but by hazardous roads, inadequate signage and poor highway design. In many cases, the cause of the accident is not obvious to those who were injured or to police or highway patrols. It takes a thorough investigation by skilled engineers to determine what caused a car accident.

Hersh & Hersh recovered 2.9 million for its client against Caltrans. Hersh & Hersh’s client was severely injured after a motorist traveling westbound on Interstate 80 in Solano County lost control of his truck and crossed over the median into client’s eastbound car. Hersh & Hersh claimed that Caltrans failed to provide a safe and effective median barrier along Interstate 80 in Solano County to prevent cross-over accidents like this from occurring. The case was settled prior to trial.
