Texas Construction Zone Car Accidents

Accidents Caused by Construction Zones & Road Construction

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.

 

Construction Zone Safety Tips

Safety tips to remember when approaching work zones or a construction zone:

  • Plan ahead for road construction and give yourself enough time to arrive safely at your destination
  • Maintain the posted speed limit while driving through the construction zone
  • Turn your headlights to make your car or vehicle more visible
  • Be attentive and prepared for a sudden slowing in traffic
  • Be alert and watch out for construction zone workers
  • Be patient while driving through a construction zone
  • Do not change lanes or pass when driving through road construction
