Iowa Lack of Road Signs Lawyers
The Iowa Department of Transportation is responsible for maintaining safe roadways, which includes everything from the physical state of the roads to the way in which the roads are planned out. However, another job for the Department of Transportation is making the roads easy to navigate with obvious, informative signs.
When warning signs and even regular street signs are not posted, it can make the roadway a dangerous place. People may be misdirected and cause accidents that can harm you and those you love. If you have been involved in an accident resulting from problems with road signage, you should contact an Iowa lack of road signs lawyer from the trusted firm of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., today at 877-327-2600 to discuss your legal options.
The Dangers of Improper Road Signage
Road signs tell you how to get places as well as any potential traffic hazards that may be on the way. For instance, you may follow an interstate sign showing you where you should exit, yet you may notice a bright orange or yellow warning sign informing you of road construction ahead. This way, you can get where you want to go as well as avoid any roadway dangers.
Without the right road signs, you may suffer from the following:
- Vehicle damage from unmarked temporary barriers
- Personal injury from wrecks at unmarked four-way stops
- Traffic citations due to lack of posted speed limits
You rely on the state to provide you with safe roads. However, when warning and traffic signs are improperly posted or not posted at all, you can suffer from both serious injury and vehicular damage. If you have been a victim of misplaced road signs or a lack of signs, you should fight for your rights to properly marked roadways.
