A Pennsylvania man was killed in a deadly crash on the Blue Route, I-476 today near the on-ramp. The man lost control after having complications from a heart condition and drove off the road and into a tree.
More than 25,000 people killed on highways every year, die when their vehicles cross the center line and crash, cross into the shoulder and roll over, drop down a slope or strike trees. While there may be several causes of such accidents, often a defect in road design or maintenance, known as a dangerous road condition, is a contributing factor. A dangerous road condition may be the result of defective/faulty design, construction, maintenance, or obstruction on a roadway. An experienced car accident attorney will assess whether such dangerous condition on the road caused the accident that may have resulted in injuries and even death.
Auto accident cases involving dangerous road conditions are complex and expensive. The government agencies and municipalities are main defendants in dangerous road design cases and they have strong defenses in litigating such cases. It means that proving that a dangerous road condition caused the accident may be challenging. Attorneys representing car accident victims will need to thoroughly investigate the dangerous road design and the history of vehicle crashes occurring at the site.
