Huntsville AL Dangerous Road Attorneys

Thousands of Huntsville drivers go to and from work each day and are often stuck in traffic jams on our overcrowded highways and roads. Unfortunately, many of us are injured by negligent drivers. Surprisingly, there is sometimes a third or fourth “suspect” in vehicle accidents – the government agency or contractor responsible for building, designing and maintaining the road that the accident occurred on.

A fair number of Alabama accidents occur on defective and dangerous roads. In such cases, the municipality or governmental entity responsible for maintaining or designing that roadway could be held liable. A dangerous road can result from faulty design, faulty construction, faulty maintenance, or faulty adaptation to changing conditions. If you have been injured on a dangerous road, call the attorneys at Ferguson & Ferguson at 256-534-3435. We offer no obligation, FREE CONSULTATIONS to all car accident victims. We can help.
