While freeways and highways provide essential infrastructure for big cities, they can also be the place of serious motor vehicle accidents, particularly when drivers aren’t as sober or focused behind the wheel as they should be. If you like many Americans regularly drive on freeways and highways as part of your daily commute, your chances of getting into a car accident are significant, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that regular commuters will be in at least one traffic accident every five or so years.
When these accidents are caused by any type of negligence, Beaverton and Washington County Attorney Linda Weimar is ready to stand up for accident victims’ rights and work tirelessly to help them secure the compensation they deserve.
Factors that Increase the Risk of Highway and Freeway Accidents
Some of the most common types of negligence that can increase the risk of highway and freeway accidents include:
- Other drivers being intoxicated, fatigued and/or distracted when behind the wheel
- Other drivers violating traffic laws by, for example, speeding, failing to use their turn signals when changing lanes and/or failing to yield the right-of-way to other motorists
- Truck drivers violating hours-of-service regulations and/or failing to properly maintain their trucks
- Trucking companies failing to properly train truck drivers, incentivizing them to violate federal trucking regulations and/or failing to properly maintain trucks
- Cities or counties failing to properly maintain the highway or freeway, failing to adequately clean up the roadway after other accidents, etc.
- Construction companies failing to set up construction sites according to the necessary regulations
- Vehicle equipment malfunctioning.
When these or other types of negligence contribute to freeway or highway accidents, it’s time to call Attorney Linda Weimar to learn more about the legal options for compensation.
