Cincinnati Lack of Guardrails Attorneys

Highway defects account for thousands of car accidents every year in the United States, sometimes leading to serious injury or even death. It is the financial and legal obligation of a city to maintain the safety of its highways and roads in order to avoid creating dangers that threaten the safety of drivers and pedestrians. One of the most serious highway defects is an absence of guardrails where the course or surroundings of the roadway warrant their use.

If you have been injured in a car accident that could have been prevented or the severity of which could have been lessened by the presence of guardrails, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, recovery, and vehicle repair costs. The Cincinnati lack of guardrails attorneys of Stepleton & Dugan, LLC are committed to helping our clients to hold negligent municipalities accountable for the failure to provide a safe roadway. Contact us today at 513-321-7733 to discuss your legal rights and options.

Dangers of Guardrail Absence

Like other highway defects, the absence of a guardrail can pose serious driving dangers for unsuspecting drivers and pedestrians. Pedestrians often rely on guardrails to protect them from swerving drivers on dangerous roadway areas, such as bridges, and if the guardrails are missing, pedestrians face injury as well as drivers. Some dangers of guardrail absence include:

  • Rollover accidents
  • Dropping from height
  • Vehicle-pedestrian collisions
  • Crossing into oncoming traffic
