Dangerous Roads & Highways

Home » Dangerous Roads & Highways

If you were injured on a roadway that was not cleared of dangers, such as snow, ice, potholes, tree limbs, or any other impediment that should have been cleared by a government agency, you need to contact us immediately. This also applies if you sustained an injury on a sidewalk. Municipalities and other government agencies have an obligation to the public to keep roadways and sidewalks safe, free of debris, and in good repair.

If you were injured as a result of the condition of a roadway or sidewalk you may be able to seek compensation but you must act quickly. Many government agencies have very strict time limits you must adhere to in notifying the agency in writing of your intention to make a claim.

Our team at Chown Cairns LLP can work with you to quickly file your intention to make a claim, and protect your right to seek compensation. We are skilled and experienced at working to maximize benefits from government agencies when you are injured as a result of their negligence.
