Construction Negligence and Auto Accidents
We rely on experienced road construction teams to create new roads as well as to repair existing problems to the roadway. Often, construction and traffic must coexist as workers strive to fix potholes, expand the lanes, or perform other projects without shutting down the road entirely. While this may be more convenient, it can also lead to the development of dangerous road hazards.
With road construction, it is important to keep both the workers and the nearby drivers safe. Unfortunately, though, if the road construction crews are careless, dangerous accidents may result. If you have been hurt in an auto accident due to construction site negligence, contact an experienced Iowa construction negligence lawyer from LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at 877-327-2600.
Types of Road Construction Negligence
While drivers must slow down and pay attention in construction zones, construction crews are responsible for putting up signs, barriers, and other indicators of construction zones. This way, both groups can help protect each other. If a careless construction crew fails in this duty to you, it can lead to devastating car accidents. Types of road construction negligence include:
- Lack of warning signs
- Lack of protective barriers
- Debris on the roadway
- Machinery left too close to the road
Car accidents can be costly, but if your accident is the result of another’s negligence, the party at fault may be compelled to cover your expenses. To discuss your legal options, contact a knowledgeable Iowa construction site negligence attorney from LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at 877-327-2600.
