Construction Site Negligence

Often, road construction crews must expand the roads or perform road maintenance without completely blocking the flow of traffic. Thus, drivers and the construction workers must remain particularly vigilant to avoid causing accidents unnecessarily. Drivers must pay attention and slow down around construction sites, while construction crews are responsible for keeping their sites blocked and clean.

Unfortunately, sometimes careless construction crews leave tools, debris, and other items scattered on the roadway, resulting vehicle damage or causing car accidents in the vicinity of the worksite. If you have been hurt due to construction site negligence, you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation.

Types of Construction Negligence

Construction crews are supposed to fix unsafe road conditions, not contribute to them. However, this is not always the case. Carelessness or even simple forgetfulness can create hazardous situations for drivers on the affected portion of the roadway. Examples of construction site negligence include:

  • Leaving tools, materials, and debris on the roadway
  • Failure to put up warning signs or construction signs
  • Failure to erect barriers to separate the worksite from the flow of traffic
  • Leaving large machinery in a position where it obstructs the roadway

Even seemingly inconsequential things like screws, nails, and other sharp items left on the road can lead to flat tires or blowouts, causing severe crashes.
