Road Construction Zone
Construction zones should be made safe by the workers and companies managing the site, however, this is not always the case. A worker or their employer may be negligent if they have:
- Left a large amount of debris on the road
- Failed to move equipment and machines off the roadway
- Moved barrels or other barriers back so they no longer warn of areas which should be avoided
- Not replaced covers on manholes
- Failed to install or repair barriers that separate lanes of traffic from the dangerous construction area
- Not provided adequate warning signs to warn drivers of lane change shifts or other required information about the driving area
- Failed to install barricades to prevent drivers from driving off the road and into a construction area.
After any type of wreck, be sure to check with the experts: a physician, a mechanic and a lawyer. Even a small impact – like you might expect at a construction site when drivers should be going slower – needs attention from someone focused on helping fix the problem.
