Causes of Construction Zone Accidents
Many factors can contribute to a car accident in a highway construction zone. Some of the most common causes include:
- Distracted driving
- Failure to regard temporary traffic signs
- Failure to provide adequate signage
- Failure to be aware of workers and construction vehicles/equipment
- Construction debris in the road
- Steep shoulder drop-offs
If your construction zone accident is caused by another driver and the negligence of the construction company, you may be able to collect damages from multiple parties. Speak with an attorney to learn more.
