Kankakee Highway Defect Lawyers
Automobile accidents are the leading cause of preventable accidental injuries and deaths in the United States. Highway defects are a major contributing factor to serious accidents. For example, placing a guardrail along a dangerous stretch of highway can help prevent rollover accidents and head-on collisions, but the lack of a guardrail where one is needed can turn what should be a minor scrape into a deadly collision.
