Understanding The Causes Of Road Construction Accidents
While a large percentage of road construction accidents occur due to the negligent actions of other drivers, many accidents happen due to the improper setup of the construction zone. Specific requirements govern how construction zones should be set up and how traffic should be managed. When these requirements are not met and accidents happen as a result, it may be necessary to take action against the construction company or other parties.
Issues that may arise in these cases include:
- Missing guardrails
- Insufficient safety barriers
- Confusing lane markings or merge signs
- Negligent traffic control
- Failure to provide advance warning of lane closures
- Negligent use of construction equipment
- Construction equipment defects that lead to accidents
