Defective Highway Design

Was a Problem With the Road to Blame?

Sometimes, neither you nor the other driver is to blame for an accident. The design of the road or highway itself may be the cause. If the government or another entity failed to properly design the road or warn you against potential hazards, you may have a claim for damages based on defective highways.

At Monro Law Firm P.S. Inc., you will work with experienced Everett defective highway design attorneys who will pursue maximum compensation for you while you focus on recovering from damages. Based in Lake Stevens, we protect the interests of injured people throughout Snohomish County, Skagit County, Whatcom County and King County.

Experienced Guidance for Accidents Caused by Road Defects Claims for highway defects may involve:


  • Failures of bridges, overpasses and overhead structures

  • Improper warnings for curves, corners and crosswalks

  • Improper guardrails and barricades

  • Poorly marked or secured highway construction zones

  • Reduced radius curves or freeway ramps

  • Poorly maintained or missing traffic signs or signals

  • Cracks, potholes, bumps, rough and other problems with pavement


If a defective highway or defective highway design contributed to your accident, you may be able to hold the responsible government or company accountable. This can be especially beneficial in serious and fatal accidents, where damages may exceed the maximum available auto insurance benefits.

Backed by more than 20 years of experience with personally injury claims, our lawyers will carefully investigate your accident, using experts as needed to demonstrate how the accident happened and who should be held responsible. We will provide you with guidance and seasoned perspective at each stage of your case and ensure that your questions are answered promptly. We want you to feel comfortable with your case so that you can focus on your recovery.
