Road construction projects and construction sites adjacent to a roadway can prove to be a serious hazard for motorists. With heavy machinery and massive vehicles carrying or maneuvering large materials, a single mistake can prove catastrophic for passing traffic. These accidents can result in severe injuries for the occupants of vehicles that are passing through the construction zone.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by a road construction crew’s negligence, the Finney Law Office can represent you. We want to help you get the financial resources you need to rebuild your life.
Construction Site Hazards
Workers assigned to road construction projects need to ensure their work occurs within the cordoned off construction zone. A construction worker working on an open section of road endangers themselves and any motorists driving by. A motorist may be injured because of any number of construction-related hazards, including:
- Tools, materials or debris left in the road
- Construction vehicles coming onto or leaving the road
- Oncoming vehicles that do not yield
- Workers working outside clearly marked construction zones
- Failure to operate heavy machinery correctly
- Failure to adequately secure a load
