Dangerous Roads and Highways

New York and Connecticut Dangerous Municipal Roads Attorneys

Connecticut and New York highways and roads are dangerous places. Not only do you have to drive defensively to avoid car accidents, the road itself may present unforeseen hazards.

Crowded and congested roadways in the Stamford, Connecticut, area lead to many car accidents and truck accidents. Interstate 95 runs through downtown Stamford, and Route 1 is an alternate route when I-95 gets backed up. The southbound lanes of the Merritt Parkway are most congested in the morning, while the northbound lanes are crowded after work, with poor highway lighting.

Causes of Accidents on Dangerous Roads & Highways

Defective design on city, county and state highways plays an important role in contributing to car accidents, including roads with no shoulders, hairpin curves, and no guardrails. Additional safety concerns are raised with:

  • Poor highway maintenance, including potholes and uneven roadway surfaces
  • Soft shoulders, contributing to one-car accidents
  • Inadequate lighting or signage
  • Poorly marked construction zones

If we accept your case, we will vigorously investigate your claims. In order to win compensation for your injury in a city or county facility, we must prove negligence. You may win compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Contact us to see if you have a valid claim. We work on contingency, so you pay no attorney fees unless we win money damages for you. Call 855-TOBYLAW to schedule a consultation with a qualified personal injury lawyer.
