Common Highway Construction Zone Hazards

Construction zone accidents pose a significant public safety concern due to their potential to cause severe injuries or fatalities. These accidents can result in traumatic injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Fast-moving vehicles, inattentive driving, uneven pavement, and inadequate signage are some potential hazards that can contribute to these accidents. 

Some common hazards that frequently result in accidents in construction zones include:

  • Speeding vehicles 
  • Inattentive driving 
  • Abrupt and unforeseen route changes 
  • Disregarding temporary traffic signals and routes 
  • Uneven pavement 
  • Unsafe or improper merging 
  • Crooked or inadequately marked lanes 
  • Obstacles such as debris or equipment in the road 
  • Insufficient illumination 
  • Exposed utility holes 
  • Inadequate road signs 
  • Challenging blind spots when driving large construction vehicles
  • Construction workers performing repairs near passing vehicles

To prevent these accidents, construction companies, workers, and drivers must take appropriate safety measures, such as following traffic signals, avoiding distractions, and maintaining safe speeds.

Construction Zone Accident Liability

Construction Zone Accident Liability

If proper safety measures are not implemented to protect individuals near a construction zone, construction companies, their crew, managers, or contractors could be held accountable. Companies and site managers are responsible for establishing a secure construction zone for workers and the public by avoiding hazards and alerting individuals to potential dangers. Moreover, construction companies are usually held responsible for the negligent actions of their workers and subcontractors.

Vehicle Driver: In certain situations, accidents are caused by a driver's actions. If, for instance, a driver was distracted and collided with equipment or a vehicle that had slowed down or stopped correctly, the driver's negligence is the cause. They are responsible for any injuries or property damage resulting from the accident.

Construction Company: If proper safety measures were not taken to protect people near a construction zone, construction companies, their crew, managers, or contractors could be held responsible. Companies and site managers are responsible for ensuring that construction zones are safe for workers and the public by preventing hazards and alerting people to any potential dangers. Furthermore, construction companies are usually accountable for the negligence of their workers and subcontractors.

Justin is the best! His staff is amazing too! He's your go-to guy for all accident cases. My only complaint is that my wife thinks he's cute and it makes me uncomfortable. Lol. Thanks for the money Justin!

James O.

Justin was amazing dealing with a non-injury accident we experienced. He was able to get the at fault's insurance to pay despite the driver denying any wrong doing initially. He was quick to get a resolution for us so we could get repairs taken care of. Thanks, Justin!
