Road Work Accidents
Were You Injured in a Road Work Accident?
As a roadside construction worker, you are already aware of the risks associated with your job. As a result, you take care to follow safety protocols to ensure the most secure work experience possible. Unfortunately, no matter how careful you may be, an unruly or reckless driver can cause life-altering damage in a matter of moments.
Road work accidents are a major problem in the United States. There were over 96,000 crashes in work zones during 2015 alone, according to the Federal Highway Administration. As a result of these crashes, over 25,000 people were injured, and over 600 lost their lives.
If you were injured while working on road construction, you may still be struggling. Your injuries may have made returning to work difficult. Your medical bills may be spiralling out of control. Fortunately, an experienced attorney can help.
Careless driving is dangerous for everyone on the road, from passengers to other drivers. As a roadside construction worker, you can only do your job properly when drivers exercise caution and pay attention to the road. This is why it is extremely important to hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions.
If someone else’s negligent driving resulted in your injuries, an attorney can help you ensure that that person is held accountable. You may be entitled to a significant financial settlement to compensate for your medical bills, missed wages, and emotional damages.
If you or a loved one were injured in a road work accident, an experienced attorney can help you explore your options.
