Construction Site Car Accidents
Construction site car accidents occur in and around Gwinnett County and the metro area, as we build or improve our city’s commercial and residential areas. Serious car accidents can result from area drivers maneuvering in and around construction sites on our roads and highways during road repairs or improvements. Gwinnett County auto injury attorneys at Scholle Law know the intricacies of these accidents and what the law provides in terms of potential recovery after a construction site crash.
Construction site car accidents can be caused by various factors and circumstances. These accidents can occur at any time of day or night and can result in severe damage to property and injuries to drivers and their passengers. Some examples include situations in which drivers are not clear which lane they must travel in due to lack of signage or blockage, construction debris on the road or other obstructions that make visibility difficult.
Any one of these situations can create the conditions that result in an accident in which victims sustain catastrophic, or even fatal, injuries. The families of fatally injured construction site car accident victims can file suit against defendants responsible in what is called a wrongful death action.Our area's drivers must deal with potential hazards of road construction projects nearly year round. Construction site car accidents can occur on a country road or on a major interstate highway. They can occur during the commute hours or on a weekend drive.
Some of these accidents are caused by such circumstances as: improperly marked lanes of travel that force cars into dangerous or hazardous situations; construction debris that workers fail to remove; poor visibility that makes it difficult for drivers to see the road ahead or around them; failures to provide sufficient time for drivers to avoid construction hazards or a construction zone. Just one of these problems can result in a car swerving out of its lane into other traffic or oncoming traffic, in addition to other situations in which drivers must avoid a construction site hazard, but end up in a collision with equipment or other vehicles on the road.
