Rhinelander Construction Site Negligence Lawyers
If the road ahead contains warning signs telling motorists that construction workers are present, the expectation is that drivers will slow down and pay attention to the changing circumstances. While this is a widely understood part of driving around construction zones, it does not necessarily seem to go both ways. Construction workers can be to blame for damages and injuries that occur due to unwillingness or carelessness in following safety protocols.

Construction Site Damages
Road construction is a necessity. Although road engineers generally do their best to create durable surfaces that will remain smooth enough for vehicles to safely drive on over time, the reality of any engineering project is that some level of maintenance is required. However, while crews are repairing problems or adding to a road’s existing capacity, they may be prone to causing the following issues due to negligent behavior:
- Debris falling or launching into traffic
- Dangerously sharp or flammable materials left in the roadway
- Tools left behind in the street
- Collisions involving careless workers
These types of problems can cause severe damage to a vehicle and cause motorists to get into serious accidents due to tire blowouts or chunks of concrete or asphalt falling onto a car. While motor vehicles can often handle a certain amount of abuse, the kinds of high-powered equipment associated with construction can be more than enough to cause major accidents.
