Legal Action Against SDOT in Seattle
The City of Seattle is responsible (or irresponsible) for dozens of road repair and construction projects each year in its effort to build and maintain our local transportation network, a network that consists of over 1600 miles of road.
Construction crews, road closures, and detours are common. In every project, from filling a pothole to reconstructing an entire street, safety is always a top priority. Accidents are rather frequent. If the SDOT or one of its employees forgot to remove equipment or threw up a warning sign with no regard to a driver being able to see it, then the person injured by that negligence may have a valid legal claim.
Examples of SDOT Negligence
- Ineffective roadway design
- Road signs blocked by foliage
- Bicycle paths crisscrossed with edges
- Dangerous sidewalks
- Inadequate bridge or road maintenance
- Poorly placed pedestrian signals & misplaced direction signs
- Hazardous roadblocks, construction signs, or blockade placement
- Lack of basic maintenance
- Failing to warn drivers of unsafe conditions or road closure;
- Construction materials left in the road
- Confusing way-finding signs
