Road Construction Accidents
Although road construction can be frustrating because of the traffic slowdowns that often occur as a result, it is essential for maintaining safe and usable roadways. In many cases, road construction must take place near existing commuter traffic on busy streets and highways.

Negligence in Roadway Construction
Usually, road construction requires workers to use heavy machinery to tear up an old road, haul in new materials, and build and pave the new road. During the process, drivers may be at great risk for injury if construction companies fail to take safety precautions and carefully plan ahead.
Common negligent actions in road construction include:
- Failure to erect barriers between drivers and construction crews
- Failure to post warning signs about construction
- Failure to safely reroute traffic around construction
Any of these failures may result in serious auto accidents that can leave drivers and their passengers with head injuries, broken bones, or internal organ damage. In severe accidents, vehicle occupants may even pass away from their injuries.
Construction companies must work to ensure the safety of drivers while road construction is occurring.
