Construction Zone Negligence
In order to maintain or build roadways, road construction workers have to designate and set up construction zones. These sites often require a portion of the street or highway to be closed, creating heavy traffic jams and other problems. Drivers are often warned about maintaining a safe speed through these areas. While driving safely is important, injuries can also happen when construction site managers or workers act negligently.
When construction site workers act negligently, they are putting innocent lives in jeopardy.

Common Negligent Actions
There are many different ways road construction crews and companies can act negligently. When they do, they are increasing the chance of an accident and serious injury. You may be able to file a lawsuit if you were injured as a consequence of any of the following:
- Large amount of debris or vacant equipment and machinery being left in the roadway
- Broken barriers separating the flow of traffic from the construction project
- Absent barriers around construction zone
- Manholes being left uncovered
Lack of adequate warning signs to advise drivers of the presence of lane shifts or other vital information about the road construction project
