Georgia Construction Zone Car Accident Lawyers


December 21, 2022

All drivers understand the importance of keeping their full attention on the road ahead to avoid being in an accident. However, distraction, confusion, obstacles, and debris in construction zones make it necessary for drivers to reduce their speed, use extreme caution, and remain alert.

Some drivers believe that construction signs are only in place for the safety of the on-site construction workers. However, orange cones, construction signs, warning flags, flashing lights, and protective barriers are also used to protect motor vehicle occupants, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and other people who are traveling on Georgia roadways. If you or a loved one have been harmed in a construction zone car accident, our construction zone accident lawyers are ready to review the facts of your case and advise you regarding your legal rights and options.

Construction zones have lots of moving pieces, and these work zones claim the lives of thousands of workers and motorists every year. Construction accidents also cause thousands of injuries annually. When you or a loved one are driving in a construction zone, there may be hazards such as debris, unanticipated cement barriers, confusing detours, machinery parked too close or in the roadway, and other dangers that may cause severe collisions.

Although there are many construction zone accidents every year, there has been little action from the federal government to improve construction zone safety standards. While Georgia and other states do have state regulations in place to reduce the chances of vehicle accidents and pedestrian accidents in work zones, there is no uniformity between the states. Therefore states cannot develop the best practices to keep the public and workers safe in work zones.

Construction zone accidents are complicated because these crashes can be the result of several varying factors, such as:

  • Confusing detour routes and signage.
  • Rubbernecking drivers.
  • Lack of proper barriers.
  • Lack of flag people.
  • Signs were displaying misleading or outdated information.
  • Unsafe parking of heavy equipment.
  • Lack of flags, cones, or other warning devices.
  • Failure to remove obstructions from the road.
  • Excessive speeding. 

These potential risks and other hazards come as no surprise to experienced drivers. However, construction sites change rapidly. That is why it is important to contact Montlick Injury Attorneys quickly so that our accident scene investigations can preserve crucial evidence. Those liable in a construction accident could include distracted drivers, construction companies who use improper signage, the state, the city, general contractors, sub-contractors, workers, and others.
