Construction Zone Accident
Construction Zone Accident &
Road Construction Accident Lawyer
Road construction and construction zones can be dangerous to workers and other drivers in the area. A construction zone worker's job duties require them to lift heavy objects, operate heavy machinery, and perform precise tasks at elevated heights. These dangers, especially as vehicles whip by at fast speeds, require the utmost of safety protocols.
Construction Zone Injury and Liability
Although the proper safety practices can decrease a worker or passerby's risk of being injured in a construction zone, it is also the duty of contractors to ensure that warnings are issued in these hazardous construction areas. When a construction accident that is preventable occurs because of someone's negligence, they may be liable, along with their company, for the victim's injuries.
Causes of Construction Zone Accidents
A construction zone accident can occur due to a construction worker not being properly trained by their employer, due to defective equipment, ineffective safety warnings, inadequate or non-existent personnel to control traffic, unclear construction zone areas, and poor placement of signs and barricades.
