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. Our seasoned attorneys have seen common hazards that contribute to construction zone accidents, including:
- Poor road signage
- Uneven road surfaces
- Improperly marked or uneven lanes
- Debris or equipment left in roadway
- Sudden, unexpected detours
- Construction crews
- Speeding cars
- Inadequate lighting
Determining fault in a construction zone accident
If you were injured in a construction zone, we investigate to determine what caused your car accident and who was at fault. 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 that oversee the project and equipment can be held liable. Even if you walk through a construction zone and break your leg after tripping over a dangerous hazard, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries.
