Cincinnati Lack of Signs Attorney
Highway defects cause hundreds of thousands of car accidents every year in the United States, often resulting in serious injury or even death. One of the most common types of highway defect is a lack of appropriate signs on roadways, which can limit a driver’s ability to safely operate his or her vehicle on the road.
It is a city’s responsibility to ensure that proper signs are posted on roadways, particularly on highways, intersections, construction zones, and other high-traffic areas. If any municipality neglects to maintain its roadway signage and the neglect leads to car accidents, it may be held responsible for any damages and injuries sustained.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident because of highway defects like lack of signage, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Important Roadway Signs
All roadway signs serve an important purpose, but many car accidents occur because of the absence of particular signs. These signs include:
- Stop signs
- Yield signs
- Speed limit signs
- Merging signs
- Intersection signs
Although all roadway signs are extremely important to help ensure drivers’ safety, the absence of signs controlling speed and stopping can be very hazardous because drivers often lose control when traveling at excessive speeds and failing to yield or stop.
