In the wake of two recent devastating incidents, GWC stands in solidarity with laborers and echoes their call for heightened caution in construction zones.
The first incident, an interstate crash in Bloomington, resulted in severe injuries to a member of Laborers’ Local 362. The second incident involves the loss of a devoted member of Laborers’ Local 165 for the past 27 years. His untimely death serves as a poignant reminder of the immediate dangers faced by workers in and around construction zones. So the next time you get on the roads or highways, and you see those familiar orange signs for road construction workers ahead, drive like your life depends on it. Theirs certainly does.
With decades of experience handling cases involving truck wrecks and construction zones, GWC acknowledges the significant ramifications that can unfold when drivers neglect to comply with speed limits and exercise proper diligence in these specific areas. Our firm is committed to advocating for the rights of those affected by such incidents, seeking justice for victims and their families.
