Road and highway construction zones pose problems to passing motorists as well as to crew members. When accidents occur in these areas, investigators often discover that one or more of the following factors contributed to the crashes:
- Poor signage
- Weather conditions
- Traffic congestion
- Inattentive driving
- Truck driver fatigue
- Inadequate training of work zone crew members
The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, spells out in detail how signs, cones and flashers should be used to prevent accidents in work zones. Upon investigation, we often learn that a subcontractor or company did not follow the clear guidelines delineated in that manual.
Work zone accidents often involve a car or truck traveling at full speed, rear-ending a car or truck in front of it. Pedestrian accidents involving work crew members are also common. Multi-car accidents are not uncommon in this type of setting. Whatever the circumstances and regardless of your role in a work zone accident, you should consult with a personal injury attorney to learn how to protect your right to compensation. Do not rely on an employer or another person involved in the crash to protect your interests.
