Road and highway construction often makes road usage difficult for motorists. When accidents occur around road work zones, it’s usually due to one or more of the following:
- Inadequate training of work zone crew members
- Truck driver fatigue
- Inattentive driving
- Traffic congestion
- Weather conditions
- Poor signage
The Federal Highway Administration issued a manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, which dictates how flashers, cones and signs should to be used to prevent work zone accidents. However, research shows that companies and subcontractors rarely adhere completely to the rules as stated in the manual.
Accidents in work zones are often high-speed rear-end collisions. Additionally, road workers are often victims of pedestrian accidents. It’s also not uncommon for multi-car accidents to take place in a work zone. Regardless of the circumstances or your role in the accident, you should consult an experienced personal injury lawyer to comprehensively understand your compensation rights.
