Seeking Legal Help After a Road Construction Injury
Road construction is especially dangerous, as it often occurs while motorists are still able to use the roadway. Those responsible for the site must take the correct precautions to eliminate foreseeable harm and protect both workers and travelers.
Unfortunately, there are many ways a road construction company’s negligence can lead to motorist injuries. Some of these include:
- Improper signage or warning about the construction site
- Failure to clean up debris on or beside the road
- Uneven pavement or otherwise poor pavement conditions
- Allowing inadequate space for motorists to safely navigate around the site
Individuals who work on or travel through a construction site expect to do so safely. Each of the above examples of road construction negligence is dangerous and can lead to preventable deaths and injuries.
The county, state, and the construction companies they work with have a duty to keep their sites safe. They do so by upholding all safety regulations and standards and taking reasonable action to minimize the risk to motorists and workers. When responsible parties violate that duty, someone can be killed or injured. That’s unacceptable.
