New Jersey Road Defect Attorneys

Road Defect AttorneysWhile the majority of motor vehicle accidents are caused by driver error or negligence, some are also caused by negligently designed or maintained highways. Under New Jersey law, if an individual is injured in an accident that was caused by or at least in some part the result of a defective highway design or maintenance, they are entitled to recover compensation against the governmental entity that designed or maintained the roadway.

At Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C., our New Jersey road defect attorneys have handled some of the largest defective highway design and maintenance cases. Our legal team, investigators, and other professionals know what it takes to prepare a case for successful resolution after all types of crashes, from single occupant accidents to mass disasters.

Design and Maintenance of New Jersey Roadways

New Jersey roadways are designed, built and maintained by New Jersey State, its counties, towns or other municipalities. Despite the advances in technology and roadway design and engineering, errors in design, construction and maintenance is still a big factor in motor vehicle accidents.

State agencies and local municipalities are responsible for providing reasonably safe roads for travel by the public. When these parties fail to provide the minimum standard of safety in roadways, which ultimately leads to an accident, they will be liable to the injured victims.

The New Jersey road defect attorneys at Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. are familiar with the New Jersey state and local roadway guidelines and have extensive experience and resources in successfully handling roadway design and maintenance cases. We are dedicated in getting you the monetary compensation that you deserve.

Causes of Roadway Accidents Due to Design Failure or Poor Maintenance

Roads throughout New Jersey are sometimes found to be a host for dangerous conditions and hazards, making it a hotbed for motor vehicle accidents. Some of the most common accidents resulting from poorly maintained or designed roads include:

  • Reduced radius or exit ramps.
  • Missing or poorly maintained traffic signs and signals.
  • Poorly maintained pavement, such as cracks, potholes or uneven surfaces.
  • Poorly designed or failure of bridges or overpasses.

Regardless of what type of road failure caused your accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. However, to determine who is responsible and to get the full compensation that you deserve, you should consult with an experienced New Jersey road defect attorney.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
