State entities, county governments, contractors, and engineering firms can be held financially accountable for injuries and fatalities caused by defectively-designed or poorly-maintained roads and bridges which create a significant risk of harm to the entire community. In many cases, a history of car crashes are associated with a stretch of highway or an intersection, indicating the presence of dangers intrinsic to the layout or construction of the road itself. At Stambaugh Law P.C., we expose road design defects and dangerous bridges that lead to serious injuries. Our attorneys consult design engineers, accident investigators, and other experts in uncovering design defects or poorly maintained roads that contribute to or cause an incident where people are injured.

If you have been seriously injured in an incident or have lost a family member due to defective or dangerous road design, contact Stambaugh Law P.C. to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.

Determining the Cost of an Injury

Traffic incidents involving cars, trucks, and motorcycles often involve serious head trauma, spinal cord injuries, amputations, or even fatalities. In order to ensure the full financial impact of our client’s injuries are taken into account, we work closely with medical economists and life care planners. As your attorneys, we take into account costs associated with emergency room care, surgery, physical therapy, medical equipment, in-home nursing care, and lost wages.
