Traffic island Traffic islands are solid strips placed in roadways to channel traffic safely. These strips are primarily used to slow down cars driving past, prevent vehicles from cutting corners at partially blind intersections, block certain movements, and provide safety to pedestrians crossing the street. Additionally, traffic islands are found between roads that intersect at acute angles. Generally, these islands are shorter than traffic medians, which are placed as dividers over much longer distances. Despite providing vital safeguards, accidents involving traffic islands frequently cause victims to suffer injuries in Buffalo, New York, and throughout surrounding areas.

The severity of injuries suffered typically depends on the type of island and the speed of the involved vehicles at the time of the accident. Traffic islands consisting of elevated concrete curbs are commonly found around highways, where vehicles travel at high speeds. When cars run over painted islands composed of markings, they can easily break through and smash into approaching traffic. Regardless of the circumstances, victims of accidents involving traffic islands may be entitled to pursue personal injury lawsuits against any parties that contributed to the collision.

Liability For Your Traffic Island Collision

Construction planning Establishing liability in an accident involving a traffic island can be very difficult. There may be several plausible causes and sources of liability. Victims can hold negligent or reckless drivers who crash into traffic islands and cause collisions responsible. Victims rely on the legal theory of negligence to hold defendants accountable. To prove negligence, a victim must show that the defendant owed them a duty of care, which was breached. The defendant’s careless action must have led to the accident and caused the victim’s injuries. All motorists owe others on the road a duty to act as a reasonably prudent driver would act in a similar situation. Consequently, a driver who engages in erratic maneuvers or speeding and smashes into a traffic island would be deemed negligent.

In addition to irresponsible motorists who cause collisions, other parties can also be held liable. For example, the municipality, civil engineers, or contractors may be held responsible if the traffic island was positioned incorrectly, poorly constructed, or inadequately maintained. Just as motorists are supposed to exercise reasonable care, municipalities are obligated to keep our roads safe. Unlike other cases, before filing a claim against any New York State agency, victims must file a notice of claim within 90 days of the accident and file a lawsuit within 15 months. Our highly experienced car accident lawyers will actively develop the most effective legal tactics to ascertain all sources of fault, prove liability, obtain the maximum compensation for all injuries suffered, and guarantee that justice prevails.
