Liability in Construction Zone Accidents
Depending on the specific circumstances involved, both a private construction company and a government entity may be liable for a construction zone accident.
This may be the case when:
- There are inadequate warning signs alerting motorists to the presence of a construction zone
- The construction zone is lacking any warning signage whatsoever
- Unmarked road hazards caused by the construction zone led to the accident
- The construction zone lacked sufficient lighting (during nighttime)
Construction companies and municipal entities must follow very specific, strict regulations when it comes to warning motorists of upcoming road hazards. Failure to do so can constitute negligence and may be grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
Why You Need an Attorney
Pursuing financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages in any type of defective or dangerous road claim is likely to be very difficult. Without the help of a qualified legal professional, you may be unable to prove that another party was at fault for the accident. You may not be able to recover the full, rightful compensation to which you are entitled. You may even miss crucial filing deadlines or surpass the statute of limitations, leaving you unable to bring a claim at all.
