Construction Zone Negligence
Road construction is a necessary part of city growth and maintenance. And while it is a necessity for keeping roads safe for public use, construction can create problems whenever construction site managers or workers act negligently or irresponsibly. Traffic accidents caused by negligent construction workers can cause serious injury to motorists and pedestrians, despite their best efforts to observe the appropriate traffic laws.
If you or someone you know has been harmed due to the negligence of a road construction crew, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation.
