Road Construction Accidents
Taking On Highway Construction Companies
State and federal law provides detailed regulations for managing highway construction zones. Road construction crews are required to mark the road, create detours and make other traffic changes in a manner that will allow necessary work to be completed while also maintaining the safety of those driving by.
Failure to display warning signs, to properly block off the construction zone, or to adequately divert traffic around the site could lead to a motor vehicle accident, or cause an accident to be worse than it needed to be. In these cases, the construction company may be held accountable for injuries suffered by innocent victims.

The Experience And Resources To Handle Complex Cases
Road construction accident cases can be complicated and often involve several layers of liability. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, it is possible that legal action may need to be taken against both the construction company and another driver. An attorney may need to balance multiple personal injury lawsuits.
Even if the case is against a construction company alone, choosing a lawyer who will take an aggressive stance is important. There may be technical evidence at play. Experts may need to be called in to explain appropriate methods for setting up road construction sites and safely diverting traffic. We have access to these experts, and we have the knowledge that comes with 30 years of collective experience handling these cases.
