The term "highway" includes all public roads and ways. Highway law is concerned with the regulation and maintenance of all means of travel open to the public-- such as turnpikes, toll roads, bridges, ferries, navigable waters, etc. Generally, all roads which the legislature has power to establish are public roads. Highways are distinguished from private roads in that highways are intended for public use, and are maintained at the public's expense. Both state and federal highway law exists, but emphasis should be placed on local rules and regulations. Typically, in most jurisdictions, highway officers are personally liable for injuries to persons or property resulting from acts of their negligence in connection with the construction and repair of highways, streets and bridges, but there is some authority to the contrary.

  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Should you choose a large lawyer or a small lawyer:
    The size of a law firm has no relation to how well your case will be taken up. A large law firm may seem well staffed and having a great office, but what you must see is whether they will take out enough time and effort towards your case. Large firms receive large cases that would figure above smaller cases in their priority list. A law firm with over 10 lawyers on its rolls can be considered a large firm.

  • Always find out how much many similar cases the lawyer has taken up:
    The legal profession is very vast. Lawyers take up cases of varying nature and may not have a good working knowledge of the nature of certain cases. You must speak to the lawyer and find out whether he/she has actually taken up cases of a similar/same nature. After all, what would a divorce lawyer know about personal injury cases. Make sure that the lawyer takes up at least 60% cases of a similar nature/ similar field of law.
