Construction Site Negligence and Car Accidents
Many driving hazards are no one’s fault. No one can control inclement weather, for example. But there are other things that can be easily controlled, and are potentially very dangerous when people do not attend to them. One example of this is when road construction sites fail to put certain safeguards into place, and thus may become responsible for the serious injury or death of drivers and passengers.
In order for drivers to be able to navigate around a construction site safely, they need a fair amount of warning concerning the approaching site. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured in a car accident involving a construction site in which the crew failed to implement proper safety standards to keep drivers safe, contact the Iowa car accident lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. by calling 877-327-2600.
Safety Concerns for Drivers at Construction Sites
Some safety issues with certain construction sites which can cause wrecks involving serious injury or death are:
- Poorly marked lanes
- Insufficient lighting surrounding the entire construction zone
- Little or no notification of approaching lane closures or changes
- Lack of protective barriers along the work zone
- Debris or spills in the road
Just a few safety procedures at construction sites can protect innocent drivers and passengers.
