With more than 30 years of experience, she can guide you through this complex process and help you receive the compensation you deserve.
Causes of Road Construction Car Accidents
There are many ways in which the negligent actions of a construction company and its workers can create hazardous road conditions in the construction zone. Some of the most common causes of road construction car accidents include:
- Missing signs, hidden signs, or incorrect signs throughout the construction area
- Poorly maintained work zones
- Construction debris scattered throughout the road
- Poorly labeled detours
- Failure to warn about hazardous road conditions
- Improperly placed roadblocks
- Narrow lanes with no shoulder
A Complex Area of Law
Road construction car accident cases are highly complex. Often, there are multiple parties who may potentially be liable for your injuries. These may include contractors, construction workers, and in some cases state employees involved in the construction process. It is very easy for any of these people to make an error that jeopardizes your safety.
The success of your case often hinges on your ability to prove that one or more parties involved in the construction project were negligent, resulting in your injuries. This can occur due to a violation of safety regulations, inadequate training, or carelessness caused by fatigue
Our Atlanta car accident lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation of the accident scene to gather evidence that will conclusively prove negligence in your case. This will include working with accident reconstruction experts and interviewing witnesses who can support your case.
