Drivers throughout central Illinois are familiar with the sight of road construction.

Unfortunately, driving in these construction zones can not only be inconvenient, but it can also be hazardous. If you have been involved in a car accident that took place in a construction area, you will want to work with a skilled attorney who can help you establish fault for the collision and ensure that you can receive payments to address your injuries and damages.

Who Is Liable for Construction Zone Accidents?

Driving in construction zones can often be confusing. Lanes may be narrowed or closed off, and drivers may be diverted into unfamiliar traffic patterns or required to take detours around roads that are closed. Heavy construction equipment will often be operated close to the lanes where drivers are traveling, and roads may have large holes, missing pavement, or other hazards that drivers will have to be careful to avoid. Because of these concerns, construction zones typically have a lower speed limit, and drivers are required to take extra care to avoid collisions with other vehicles, construction equipment, or workers.

In many cases, accidents that occur in construction areas are caused by drivers who do not follow the proper safety precautions. If a person does not obey the posted speed limit, they may be unable to stop in time when a vehicle in front of them slows down, and this can result in rear-end collisions. Distracted driving may also cause a driver to be unable to respond to unexpected road conditions and avoid an accident. Drunk driving can be especially dangerous in construction zones, since drivers who are intoxicated will likely be unable to avoid hazards, and they can cause accidents that seriously injure other drivers or construction workers.

In some cases, a construction company or government organization may be liable if it did not follow the proper safety measures in a construction zone. For example, signs may not have been put in place to warn drivers of hazards or changes in traffic patterns. Equipment may have been obstructing the road, or workers may have failed to operate machinery safely around vehicles. Cones or barriers may not have been placed around holes in the road or other hazards. Workers may not have directed traffic as needed when work was being done that required a lane or road to be closed.

When accidents occur in construction zones, victims will want to be sure to understand who was responsible. Our attorneys can investigate an accident and determine whether another driver, a state or local government or a construction company are liable. We can then help pursue financial compensation for the injuries and damages suffered by the victim.
