Lancaster Road Defects Lawyers

A sudden pothole; absent warning signs; roadway obstructions. These and other dangerous roadway conditions can quickly cause you to lose control of your vehicle and be involved in a serious accident. The sad reality of such accidents is that they could often have been avoided if the road construction company or government agency in charge of building and/or maintaining the road had acted with more care.

Unfortunately, road defects like these cause dangerous car accidents every year in the Lancaster area, due to carelessness in identifying and repairing roadway damage. At the Law Office of Bill Pelhan, our attorneys know how devastating such an accident can be for victims and their families and, as such, are devoted to helping people facing these situations seek the justice and compensation they need.

Sources and Causes of Road Defects

Whether damage to roadways occurs naturally over time or as the result of accidents and other factors, municipal agencies are responsible for repairing such damage. Unfortunately, this failure to address these damaged roadways often leads to serious car accidents, leading victims to file claims for:

  • Shoulder Drop-offs
  • Potholes
  • Uneven Pavement
  • Lack of Signs
  • Lack of Guardrails
  • Construction Site Recklessness
  • Municipal Neglect

Although dealing with the aftermath of such an accident can be difficult, especially when faced with burdensome medical bills, many people are able to get the help that they need by holding the party responsible for the road defect accountable.
