Construction Site Car Accidents
Construction site car accidents occur in and around Gwinnett County and 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. Duluth auto injury attorneys at Scholle Law know the intricacies of these accidents and what Georgia 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. Most drivers have encountered the congestion and confusion that can occur around construction sites on the road or highway on which they are traveling. Often there is no warning posted and a driver can come upon a construction zone suddenly or without notice. This can present dangerous conditions that can cause a driver to enter into an area that is not safe. Some examples include situations in which drivers are not clear which lane they must travel in due to lack of signage or blockage, various types of construction debris that are on the road or other obstructions that make visibility difficult or cause a vehicle to swerve or sustain damage.
Any one of these situations can create the conditions that result in an accident in which victims sustain catastrophic, or even fatal, injuries. Whether you or a passenger sustains injuries of any type in or near a construction site , it is important to get the help you need to recover property damage to your vehicle and personal injury to you or your passengers. The families of fatally injured construction site car accident victims can file suit against those people or entities that are 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 car 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, there is a very real possibility that your vehicle could end up in a collision with construction equipment or other vehicles on the road.
