Road Construction Accidents
At Adams & Luka, we know that the majority of motorists have had to drive in less than safe conditions, areas where construction crews are working on roads and interstates in order to improve their conditions. However, these areas are extremely hazardous, particularly when contractors fail to employ traffic controls such as flags, warning signs, cones, or other measures to ensure the safety of motorists. Not only that, some motorists ignore slowed speed limits in road construction zones, causing accidents themselves.
You may be a motorist who has been injured, or a worker in a construction zone. Regardless, you may be entitled to compensation for costs associated with your injuries. Our Orlando road construction accidents attorneys are dedicated to recovering the damages you deserve, and helping put your life back on track.Construction Zones in Orlando and Throughout Florida are Frequently Hazardous
Anyone can be injured or even killed in road construction zones, which are often extremely hazardous not only for motorists and construction workers, but pedestrians or bystanders as well. A lack of barricades, caution signs, or even debris from the construction in the roadway can result in catastrophe. There are laws that are in place both at the state and federal level designed to promote safety in these work zones, however construction companies and road workers often violate these regulations. It is often difficult to determine which party or parties are at fault. Those who may be held liable depending on the facts of your case include impatient or distracted motorists, municipal or government entities, or even private corporations involved in the project. Our Orlando personal injury lawyers will thoroughly review your case to determine all parties who may be held partially or totally responsible for the damages you have incurred.
In addition to lack of traffic controls, other potential dangers that may contribute to a road construction accident include:
- Inexperienced workers in the construction zone
- Inadequate barricades
- Defective or malfunctioning equipment used in construction
When you or a family member have been seriously injured or even died in an accident within a construction zone on Florida's roadways and interstates, it is vital to consult with an experienced injury attorney right away to obtain the justice you deserve. Many people are not aware until they are involved in such an accident of the true costs.
