Macon County Highway Worker Injury Lawyer

Quincy construction zone accident attorney for worker injuries

Attorneys for Injuries to Road Construction Workers in Decatur, Bloomington, Springfield, and Peoria

Road construction areas are some of the most dangerous places a person can work. In addition to the risk of construction accidents, workers can also be seriously injured or killed in construction zone car accidents. When these construction workers suffer injuries, multiple parties may be at fault, including a negligent driver, the manufacturer of defective equipment, or an employer that did not follow the proper safety procedures. Victims of these types of accidents should consult with a lawyer to learn about their best options for receiving financial compensation for their injuries.

With more than $400 million recovered for our clients, we are prepared to do what it takes to ensure that your family is fully repaid for the damages suffered in a construction accident. We pledge to provide you with respect, response, and results as we help you pursue justice for the wrongs that were done to you.

Injuries in Road Construction Zones

Car accidents are one of the most common causes of injuries to road construction workers, and in many cases, they occur because of driver negligence. Drivers may not obey the reduced speed limits in construction zones, or they may not take care to avoid dangerous behaviors such as tailgating or driving too close to workers or construction equipment. Drunk driving and distracted driving, including texting or using a cell phone while behind the wheel, can also affect a person's ability to drive safely. Because construction zones often involve unexpected traffic patterns and congestion that causes traffic to slow down or stop suddenly, any unsafe driving behaviors can lead to dangerous collisions that are likely to injure people working on the road.

Construction zone accidents and injuries to workers can also occur because of the negligence of other parties. If the proper signage is not used to redirect traffic and provide warnings about the conditions on the road, drivers may be unable to avoid a collision with a worker or construction equipment. Equipment or barriers may be placed in a way that blocks escape routes, making it impossible for a worker to get to safety in a dangerous situation. Injuries can also occur if workers are not provided with the proper protective equipment or if safety procedures are not followed in a road construction area.

Workers can also suffer injuries because of accidents involving construction equipment or other work site hazards. A person may fall from a piece of equipment, or they may be struck by moving machinery, resulting in injuries such as fractures and brain trauma. Malfunctioning equipment may cause a worker to become entangled in machinery, resulting in amputations. Trench collapses or overturned equipment can also lead to catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.

In most cases, a person who is injured while working will be able to receive workers' compensation benefits. Road workers may also be able to pursue compensation from a driver who violated traffic laws, an employer that did not take steps to protect workers' safety, or the manufacturer of defective construction equipment.
