Were You Injured In A Construction Zones Accident?

Negligence in Construction Zones Accident Attorneys in Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi

At MLG Injury, our construction zone accident lawyers in Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana know that road work is essential to safe travel throughout the U.S. Billions of dollars are invested in America’s infrastructure each year, and with every construction or road crew’s newest project comes unanticipated safety hazards.

Unfortunately, whether it is adding a new lane or bridge to an interstate, or working on a building near a city street, confusing, poorly designed or executed construction zones are much more likely to result in serious injuries and wrongful deaths.

To learn more about what might constitute negligence in a construction zone, and whether you are eligible to pursue a personal injury claim against the liable party, contact our skilled Florida personal injury attorneys at MLG Injury for a free consultation today.

What is Construction Zone Negligence and Why Does it Matter?

All construction zones must comply with safety regulations and standards that provide adequate warnings for:

  • Shoulder, lane, street, or interstate exit closures
  • Road surface changes
  • Changes in speed limits
  • Shifting lanes
  • Detours
  • Missing guardrails
  • Bridge repairs
  • Upcoming hazards

While federal, state, and local governments remain the major contributor to highway construction funding, the number of public-private partnerships (P3s) is increasing across the country. These private firms either receive money from the government to build, operate, or maintain parts of the road network, or these firms acquire the right to generate revenue in exchange for a fee paid to the government.

No matter who oversees the project, road construction companies and workers are obligated to post appropriate signage that is clearly visible and easy to read, and to set up an intelligently designed and executed construction zone to minimize the risk of accidents.

Failure to follow any of these guidelines and regulations can be considered an act of negligence because it places the safety and lives of the public at risk.

Our Florida personal injury lawyers represent clients in the following practice areas throughout the state:

How Can I Pursue Compensation for a Negligent Construction Zone Accident?

When vehicle collisions occur in construction zone accidents, there may be multiple contributing factors. They may include the lack of safety protocols and procedures by the government or private firm overseeing the work zone, or another negligent driver texting, driving under the influence, or failing to follow the construction zone instructions.

The insurance companies that hold the at-fault party’s policy will do everything they can to minimize their policyholder’s risk, which means quickly undervaluing or denying your accident claim altogether.

Keep in mind, no matter which party was at fault, their insurance provider has in-house legal counsel that will fight to limit their exposure. Our experienced negligent construction zone accident attorneys have our very own team of skilled professionals who will investigate each detail of the crash, any previous safety violations by the construction company or crew involved, and the traffic hazards and work zone circumstances to help build each of our client’s cases for success.
