Cedar Rapids Construction Negligence Lawyers
The need for safe roads is obvious. There is significant attention paid to the education of drivers
before they gain their licenses and about ongoing concerns such as the danger of operating a vehicle
under the influence or while using a cellular phone. But while motorists are in some ways the first
line of defense in preventing car accidents, the construction companies who design, build, and maintain
the roadways also must ensure that they execute their responsibilities in a manner that does not endanger
drivers and their passengers.
Negligent highway construction companies should be held accountable for the damage that arises from
their failures, and you may be entitled to pursue a civil lawsuit if you have been involved in a crash
resulting from highway defects. Contact the Cedar Rapids construction negligence lawyers of Leehey Olson Law, P.C. at (319) 294-4424 to speak with our experienced team of legal professionals about
