Hundreds of road construction workers are injured or die in construction zones every year. According to a recent study by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 25 percent of those road construction workers were killed by passing cars and trucks.
Ensuring site safety and preventing accidents in road construction zones is everyone’s responsibility – municipalities, contractors and construction companies, road construction workers, and motorists.
When a serious or fatal accident occurs in a road construction zone, it’s part of the job of the personal injury attorney to determine where things went wrong and who shares in the liability.
Have you or someone that you love been injured in a road construction accident? If you believe that you were hurt or a loved one was killed in a construction zone crash because of the negligence of a work site supervisor, another contractor, or a driver, you deserve answers.
The construction accident lawyers at GWC Injury Lawyers can help you get them.

Road construction zones are among the most complicated roadways the typical driver will experience. They require drivers to pay full attention, and yet many drivers think construction-related traffic delays are a good time to talk or text on the phone. Distracted driving is a mistake that can be deadly.
Unfortunately, some drivers fail to understand lane changes and improperly drive into closed lanes because signage is inadequate or not clearly visible, barriers were not set up properl,y or construction material has fallen or blown into traffic.
