Types of Construction Zone Vehicle Accidents
Most of you have seen those signs warning of construction ahead or asking you to slow down to keep our construction workers safe. All over the country, our roads are being improved, repaired, and new ones are being created to keep up with the incredibly high number of vehicles on our nation’s roadways. With construction zones comes the potential for serious accidents. Cars traveling at high rates of speed often do not have time to slow down when they come upon construction zones, and the result can be deadly. If you have been involved in an accident in a construction zone, you will need an experienced Dallas auto accident lawyer on your side. Polewski & Associates has over twenty years of experience representing accident victims in these difficult cases and we can help you, too.
There are many types of construction zone accidents. Most often, speeding is the cause of the accident. Drivers often rear-end other cars because they don’t have enough time to stop when they come upon a construction zone. Hitting equipment or even construction workers is another type of construction zone vehicle accident. Even with proper signage, drivers going too fast are not able to control their vehicle and avoid crashing into equipment or workers. Merging into another lane is often the cause of construction zone accidents. You all know those drivers who wait until the very last second to merge into the lane that is open. Merging at the last second will often cause fender benders and will also cause road rage in other drivers which leads to a whole host of other problems.
