road construction

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.  The Oklahoma and Arkansas personal injury lawyers at Carr & Carr Attorneys can help you determine your next steps to protect your rights and gain the compensation you deserve.  The Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas attorneys at Carr & Carr can help you by:
