driving on. Flaws in the design or construction of a road—such as
errors in gradient, placement of guard rails, and construction of road
shoulders— can lead to accidents. Unfortunately, errors such as
these are all too common road defects.

At Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge, we know the claims and lawsuits surrounding
these types of cases can be complex. You will need a
Nashville personal injury attorney who can effectively prove the roadway’s condition was what caused
your accident. More than that though, it is important to recognize that
these claims are made against the government itself—and not individuals
or companies. To be successful in such a claim, your lawyer will need
to prove that the government entity in charge of maintaining the road
was negligent in their upkeep.
Questions that will need to be asked include the following:
- Did the government know about problems with the road?
- Did the government fail to fix those known issues?
- Was there enough time for the fixes to be made?
- Did that stretch of road have a history of causing accidents?
Our car accident law firm can help you navigate the intricacies of these
claims to ensure that your rights are fully protected. If you would like
