Chicago Road Defects Attorneys

While most vehicle accidents are caused by driver errors, roadway defects also pose a great threat to motorists. Various parties are responsible for the construction and maintenance of roadways, including government entities and some private companies. When these parties allow roads to be improperly designed, poorly constructed, or inadequately maintained, the lives of drivers and passengers are put at risk.

When a motorist experiences a serious accident as a result of a roadway defect, the party responsible for failing to maintain or properly build the road should be held accountable. Seeking out legal support from an experienced Chicago road defect attorney can make all the difference in your ability to recover from the emotional and physical distress you may be experiencing. Accident victims may be able to pursue financial compensation for their losses from the responsible party. Attorneys at Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC, understand the serious effects a car accident can have on a person’s relationships, finances, and emotional well-being, and are prepared to investigate your incident and work to hold the responsible party liable.

Types of Road Defects

There are many different roadway defects that present dangerous conditions and may cause a vehicle accident. Unfortunately, government entities and companies are often not aware of existing road defects until an accident occurs. Motorists can be injured in collisions related to improper design or maintenance issues, including:

  • Shoulder drop-offs
  • Potholes
  • Improper signage
  • Uneven roads
  • Poorly marked division lines
  • Lack of guardrails
  • Excessive oil/gravel
  • Poor sightlines
  • Blind corners

No matter the seriousness of an accident, victims are usually left with some form of a financial burden stemming from medical bills, property loss, or lost wages. Fortunately, if your attorney is able to determine that the accident was caused by a road defect, victims are often able to pursue financial compensation to offset their financial burden. Nobody should be forced to bear the burden of a car accident caused by a roadway defect on their own. If you believe a road defect was responsible for your car accident, you should contact an attorney as soon as you are able.

084_DWP6380To Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC Please accept my sincere appreciation for the services your agency provided to me and my family on the Jessie Palmer wrongful death cases. There were so many issues that needed to be resolved, and with your assistance we were able to finally get the diagnosis report printed. My stepdaughters asked me to thank you as well for the settlements they received from their father’s estate. We humbly appreciate the wonderful job your firm did with our case. In the future we will refer family and friends to your agency.

Thank you so much for your diligent, professional, and thorough handling of my car accident settlement. You were beyond helpful, accommodating, and supportive during the process. You patiently explained, in detail, the procedures that would take place during the course of the claim. You continually updated me as progress was made and gave me in-depth details. Being that I was a novice to this type of practice, you advised me as to what was realistic, yet fair, as far as when, how, and monetarily the claim would be settled. When an offer was made, you advised me accordingly, and counter-offered for what you believed to be a reasonable and objective settlement. Beyond that, you also worked determinedly to reduce my medical claims and had great success. An attorney friend of mine went as far to say that you “hit a home run” when you negotiated my settlement. I want you to know how much your guidance and attentiveness to my claim meant to me. I will definitely recommend you and your firm should any of my acquaintances need legal advice in the future.

Dear J.B. ,
I wanted to thank you, for the job you did on my case. You were not only an excellent lawyer, you were a friend along the way as well. You always promptly called me, addressing my questions and concerns. As far as my settlement goes, I couldn’t have expected more then you got for me. Many lawyers “brag” , about the amount of settlements they get for their clients, on their T.V. commercials . You, got me more then these lawyers “brag” about. Thank you for getting me such a strong settlement, and being a friend as well, along the way. I’d be more then happy to talk to anyone who would like to know , what a fine attorney you are. Thank you for being there for me. Sincerely,

- J.F.
