Road Construction Accidents:
Because Florida is a comparative negligence state, individuals injured in road construction accidents may still recover a certain amount of money for damages even if they are partly at fault in the accident. This is often important in road construction accident cases. Even though the driver may be partly responsible, the vehicle’s poor design or a defective road may also account for part of the injuries.
In such road construction accidents, it is important to consult a personal injury law firm that fully understands third-party liability and Florida’s comparative negligence laws. Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano, P.A., is that firm. With more than 100 combined years of experience, our Gainesville road construction accident lawyers offer personal attention and service to individuals in Alachua County, Marion County and the surrounding areas.
Common Issues Involving Defective Road Design Or Construction
Many factors can contribute to a motor vehicle accident, especially a road construction accident, in which car occupants, road construction workers and others are seriously injured. Some of the most common factors related to defective design or negligence include:
- Lack of warning signs in construction zones
- Lack of guard rails
- Improperly marked lanes
- Unmarked bumps in the road that can cause loss of vehicle control
- Careless operation or placement of construction machinery
- Uneven or broken pavement
- Defective car design or car parts
Our law firm can call upon accident reconstruction experts, mechanical engineers, highway engineers and other professionals to help determine all the factors that played into your accident.
