Experienced Personal Injury Attorneys Advising You On Dangerous Highways That Cause Serious Car Accidents Throughout Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo And Lompoc

The dedicated San Luis Obispo car accident lawyers of the Frederick Law Firm represent victims of motor vehicle crashes caused by dangerous road conditions throughout Lompoc, Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo and beyond. Roads and highways that would otherwise be safe can become inherently dangerous to drivers due to a myriad of conditions such as:

  • Narrow roads
  • Steep inclines
  • Potholes and damaged pavement
  • Uneven terrain
  • Lack of caution signs
  • Blind turns
  • Obstructions
  • Flooding
  • Oil spills
  • Lack of visibility
  • Lack of street lights
  • Negligent engineering
  • Negligent maintenance
  • Hazardous weather conditions

Such conditions can result in damaged vehicles, damaged property, serious injuries or even fatalities requiring the services of attorneys experienced in San Luis Obispo fatal accidents and other forms of auto accident representation throughout the state.

Unfortunately, Central and Southern California has more than its share of dangerous roads and highways. Please consider using extra caution when traversing these areas.

Lompoc Dangerous Roads

Harris Grade Road (also known as the old Highway 1) is an eight-mile stretch linking the Lompoc and Los Alamos valleys. It is narrower, steeper, slower and much more hazardous than its newer Highway 1 counterpart. It is known for its blind curves and traffic accidents. Its scenic views can also contribute to accidents when drivers fail to keep their eyes on the road. Out of safety concerns, semitrailers over 30-feet in length have recently been banned from traveling on this section of highway.

San Luis Obispo Dangerous Roads

The San Luis Obispo North Coast Byway (part of Route 1 in north San Luis Obispo County) is a very scenic route along the coast – but that can also make for driving with heightened risks. Narrow roads with many turns and few barriers can be a recipe for serious accidents if motorists are not careful.

Narrow thoroughfares such as Ontario and parts of South Higuera parallel Highway 101, but are increasingly popular among bicyclists who share the roads with motor vehicles.

Santa Maria Dangerous Roads

Highways 101, 166 and 135 have been the scenes of fatal car crashes and accidents due to its roads and steep descents in some sections through mountainous terrain.
