Highway Defects

Connecticut’s roads and highways are amongst the most heavily traveled in the country, leading to a significant number of bridges, overpasses, exit ramps, and roads in disrepair.  Some roads were poorly or improperly designed.  Others are improperly maintained and we are forced to commute on roads riddled with potholes, uneven pavement, inadequate drainage and other hazards.  Even the most alert drivers may have difficulties avoiding an accident when encountering road or highway defects.  Unfortunately accidents caused by road defects often lead to serious injury or even death.

 

At Cooper Sevillano we believe that the public and private entities responsible for designing, constructing and maintaining our roads must be held accountable when the defective conditions they have caused lead to accidents resulting in injury or death.  Our experienced trial attorneys can help you to pursue a claim against the businesses, government entities and subcontractors that are responsible for your injuries.  Because highway and road defect cases may have multiple responsible parties, with every case our team retains construction experts to uncover every potential source of recovery and help us present your case most effectively to a jury.  Sometimes claims against governmental entities can be particularly difficult to bring due to governmental immunity.   Our attorneys have successfully brought numerous claims against governmental entities.
