Common hazards in construction zones
Road construction is necessary when it comes to improving and maintaining North Dakota highways and streets. However, construction crews and contractors don’t always take the necessary precautions to ensure your safety as a driver. Unsafe road conditions play a significant role in car accidents, especially in construction areas. If you swerve to avoid obstacles in the road, you could hit signs, road crews, or even get hit by other cars. Common hazards that contribute to construction zone accidents include:
- Poor road signage
- Uneven road surfaces
- Improperly marked or uneven lanes
- Debris or equipment left in roadway
- Sudden, unexpected detours
- Construction crews
- Speeding cars
- Poor signage
- Inadequate lighting
If you have been injured in a construction zone accident as a result of someone’s negligence, we ensure you are fairly compensated for your injuries.
Who is at fault in a construction zone accident?
If you were injured in a construction zone, our attorneys determine what caused your accident and who was at fault. Sometimes there are factors which are out of your control such as bad weather, heavy traffic or reckless drivers.
By law, North Dakota companies and agencies involved in managing construction projects must follow state and federal safety regulations. It is their responsibility to keep roads safe for motorists, including the safety of employees and pedestrians.
For example, if you work in a construction zone and are injured by faulty equipment or falling debris, construction companies, contractors and agencies who oversee the project and equipment can be held liable. Even if you walk through a construction zone and trip over a dangerous hazard and break your leg, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries.
