Road Conditions: Who Is Responsible?

Roadways in the Salt Lake City area and throughout Utah must be designed to accommodate a wide range of traffic—including bicycles, motorcycles, all types of cars and large commercial trucks—as safely as possible. When your town or city fails to do this, the municipality may be held accountable for any resulting damages.

Some of the conditions that may justify legal action in these cases include:

  • Fundamentally dangerous road design, including slopes that are unsafe for the traffic mix in inclement weather
  • Damaged or non-existent guardrails
  • Obstructed or poor visibility at intersections
  • The lack of essential warning signs and signals, including those required at railroad crossings
  • Improperly designed or marked bike lanes, particularly near roundabouts
  • Failure of road crews to observe critical safety guidelines and standards when setting up and working in construction zones
  • Road defects and uncollected debris known to UDOT officials or representatives

Dangerous road conditions can include insufficient lighting, improper or obstructed signage, dangerous speed limits, poor road construction, malfunctioning traffic lights, uneven asphalt/potholes, and more.

We're Ready to Face Powerful Opponents

When improper road design or ignored dangerous conditions are at issue, litigation against the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) may be necessary. Any governmental opponent in a lawsuit will almost certainly put substantial legal and expert resources to work in its defense, making it critical to contact an attorney with experience and a strong track record of success.

Our personal injury, wrongful death, and business lawyers have direct, relevant experience pursuing valid claims and lawsuits against governmental entities and large corporations. We are one of a few Utah law firms capable of matching and overcoming their significant financial resources, and we are driven to obtain maximum compensation in many cases for our clients.

If you or a loved one have been hurt, the time to start exploring your options is now. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.

We feel he was very fair.

  • I would recommend Eric Olson to anyone. He was very professional and strived to educate me in making the best decisions when I had no idea how to decide what to do. He is very knowledgeable about his particular field of law and used that in my best defense. I am very pleased with the job that he did for me.

  • I was in an auto accident three years ago. The first auto accident I have ever been in, but the other driver was ticketed. This lead to slow and obvious pain that grew worse. Doctors, surgery, shots, emotional trauma from not being able to physically do things I used to.
