Car Accident Attorneys
Accidents are not always the fault of a careless driver. Some roads just seem to be dangerous, by virtue of their design, inadequate or misleading signage, lack of guard rails, poor road maintenance and other conditions.
Seeking Full Compensation For Victims Of Dangerous Roads
If your accident was caused by an improperly designed road or hazardous road feature, you have the right to file a claim against the government entity that was responsible for designing, building and maintaining the road.
Frantz Law Group is a team of personal injury attorneys dedicated to helping motor vehicle accident victims and their families rebuild their lives. Our law firm has successfully represented people in cases involving governmental negligence and we seek full compensation for every client.

It is the responsibility of the Department of Transportation in each state to ensure that all roadways are as safe and free of hazards as possible. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, roads may fall into disrepair and pose a danger to drivers and pedestrians.
Dangerous road conditions could include:
- Uneven pavement, or roadways that have bumps, potholes, drop-offs, or changes in texture
- Insufficient lighting
- Detritus from road construction
- Poorly designed roads
- Improper or absent traffic signs and signals
Act Quickly To Protect Your Rights
You have only six months from the date of an accident on a public thoroughfare to file notice of a claim against a municipal, county or state government. For accidents caused by dangerous roads on federal land, the notice requirement is two years.
Although it may seem as though you have plenty of time, you should act quickly to obtain legal representation. Evidence that is vital to your case can disappear quickly and the sooner the legal effort starts, the easier it will be to obtain the compensation you deserve.
What Constitutes A Dangerous Road?
We obtained a seven-figure settlement on behalf of a 14-year-old boy who was rendered paraplegic as the result of defective road design.
When representing you, we will launch a comprehensive investigation to prove negligence on the part of the governmental entity and all other parties. Pursuant to this end, our law firm can retain the services of experts in road construction, civil engineering and highway safety. These professionals can provide key insights during the preparation of your case and compelling testimony at trial.
