The Most Dangerous Roads in California

The most dangerous roads in the state of California include:

  • I-15
  • I-80
  • Highway 99
  • Route 101
  • Cajon Pass

However, accidents can happen anywhere. Any road can pose a danger – not just the most notorious roadways. If there’s a road with a known hazard, and the responsible party doesn’t correct the defect, you may have a claim.

Do You Have a Dangerous Roads Case?

You might have a dangerous roads accident claim if:

  • The roadway was defective in some way;
  • The defendant knew, or ought to have known, about the defect;
  • The defendant did nothing to correct the defect; and
  • You were injured due to an accident caused by the defect.

For example, say the government knew about poor lighting issues and didn’t address them. If you’re injured in a car crash at night caused by poor lighting, you might have a dangerous roads claim.

It won’t surprise you to know that the government and any other negligent party will argue they’re not responsible. They will do everything possible to avoid liability. Our experienced California dangerous road injury attorneys will not back down without fighting for you.

Compensation for Injuries Sustained on Dangerous Roads in Southern California

If you’re hurt on a dangerous CA road, you may claim for financial and non-financial losses including:
  • Medical bills

  • Loss of quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Wrongful death (in a fatal dangerous roads claim)
  • Long-term rehab and care costs
Our California dangerous roads injury attorneys can explain what damages you might claim in your case.

Who to Sue for a Dangerous Roads Injury Claim

There are various parties who might be responsible if you’re injured due to dangerous road conditions. It all depends on whose negligence potentially led to your injuries and losses.

The most common parties our Bakersfield dangerous road lawyers sue are:

  • Local and state government
  • City or council authorities
  • Contractors who designed and built the roadway

Sometimes, it’s even possible to sue materials manufacturers if they supplied defective materials!

A California government claim for a dangerous road is nuanced and challenging to pursue. Similarly, it’s difficult to identify the public authorities to hold responsible for your injuries. That’s why this is not something you should handle alone. You should hire an experienced California dangerous roads injury attorney immediately.
