Work zones should be clearly marked, whether on residential streets, highways, or interstates. This is usually through signs, lit signage, orange cones, markers, and reduced speed signs. Drivers should be given fair warning of construction and work zones on roadways. This is very important, as work zone accidents are very dangerous to both drivers and road workers.

The Dangers of Work Zone Crashes
Construction zones and work zones on the road can create some of the most dangerous situations for both workers and drivers. Workers are extremely vulnerable, as they are working very close to speeding cars, trucks, and semis. Many are not in actual machinery that can provide some protection in case of an accident.
Common injuries sustained in work zone accidents include:
- Fractured bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Severe bleeding
- Dislocated joints
- Induced paralysis
For drivers, the winding, tight, and sudden turns of a work zone can be confusing. Especially if warnings of a construction or work zone are not properly put into place. Other drivers may not properly merge or fail to yield. These are just some of the many reasons that work zone accidents occur. Unfortunately, they can cause very serious and catastrophic injuries. We are here to help you get full and fair compensation on your behalf.
