What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Lack of Road Signs

Road hazards are not always preventable; potential dangers such as ongoing construction, sharp turns, and steep inclines are simply a part of life. However, this does not relieve private contractors or municipalities of their responsibility to the public’s safety. If a temporary or permanent danger cannot be avoided, it needs to be clearly marked so people can adjust their driving accordingly.

When drivers are not warned about upcoming dangers, they can suffer from major traffic accidents that are not their fault. If you or a member of your family has been harmed by an unmarked road hazard, Jacksonville lack of road signage lawyer Don Guthrie will fight for you. Call our offices at 904-296-1088.

Important Road Signs

Roadway warning signs exist to let drivers know that they need to slow down, speed up, or make other adjustments to prevent serious accidents. Innocent people can be badly harmed by a lack of signs to mark dangers such as:

  • Road conditions: Changes in the road that may require warning signs include sudden inclines, steep shoulder drop-offs, sharp turns, narrow roadways, and more.
  • Traffic conditions: Drivers cannot always prevent collisions if they are not warned about upcoming intersections, merging lanes, speed limit changes, and so on.
  • Construction: Road construction is necessary to prevent accidents, but if the construction area is not clearly marked off, the results can be catastrophic. Important construction signs warn about road detours, closed lanes, work zones where people may be walking around, and so on.

If you have been harmed because you were not warned about conditions like these, your injuries are not your fault. Jacksonville lack of road signage attorney Don Guthrie can help you work towards the compensation you deserve.
