What Should I Do If I've Been In An Accident Involving Road Construction?
Construction-related employment is a high-risk industry in the United States. Construction workers face the possibility of devastating injuries every day, no matter how strict the safety standards.
"The key thing to do if you've been involved in an accident, road construction is documenting the evidence. These cases typically involve problems with the signs that are up and not having the correct signs up, or they're not in the right places, or they're confusing the way that they're set up. These are governed per set standards that are found in the manual of uniform traffic control devices that tell them what signs to put up and where.
And so our key issue is knowing where those signs were at the time of the accident. So if you can take photographs at the scene of what the signs say and where they are, that is important to prove in these cases."
