Car Accidents and Construction Site Negligence
Road construction is an everyday sight across the country as the responsible authorities work repair, replace, or improve upon roadways. While construction is necessary for city growth and maintenance, it is unfortunately the cause of many car accidents every year. Construction workers are responsible for ensuring that they do not create needless hazards for motorists. When their negligence or recklessness leads to an accident, they may be found to be legally liable for the harm suffered by the victims.
If you or someone you know has been hurt in a car accident that occurred in a construction zone, you may be eligible for financial compensation to pay for damages.

Construction Site Safety Issues
Construction workers are required to warn drivers of the construction site and keep the area safe to travel through. You may be eligible for financial compensation if you were injured in a car accident for any of the following reasons:
- Improperly marked lanes
- No fence or barriers around the construction site, separating it from the flow of traffic
- Equipment left near or on the road
- Debris on the road
- No notification of construction site or speed limit change
- Lack of lighting at night
You may be able to recover financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. The financial burden of recovering from an accident can be substantial and you should not have to bear it alone.
