We can be at a crash site quickly
if and when, conditions
are likely to change.
We can answer these and other questions related to personal injury thought to have resulted from highway defects:
Were there highway defects or deficiencies that were related to causation of the crash?
Did conditions or operations conform to established practice?
Was signage proper or adequate?
We examine crash sites and review available information to determine if roadway conditions were a cause or contributing factor to a crash, and we assist in identifying responsible parties when in question.
