Collisions With Other Cars In Construction Zones
Since construction zones often narrow the traffic lanes in order to facilitate the construction work, cars and trucks are required to navigate even more carefully. Unfortunately, not everyone slows down and is cautious. This can result in serious injuries. Both drivers can be injured, but the driver who was not in compliance with posted speed limits and drifted from his or her lane is most often considered the responsible party.
Collisions With Construction Equipment
Construction equipment is supposed to be clearly marked and kept out of the way of traffic. If it needs to be in a traffic lane, that lane needs to be properly closed. However, construction workers may not have taken the proper precautions, leaving drivers attempting to avoid construction equipment. Devastating crashes and injuries often occur when a driver cannot take evasive action in order to avoid the equipment.
