Although traffic is contained and generally slower in construction zones, they are common locations for traffic accidents. With signage and heavy equipment blocking the view, shifting and unclear lanes, and large numbers of vehicles on the roadway, it can be extremely difficult for motorists to navigate construction conditions.
Accidents can include head-on collisions from someone driving on the wrong side of the construction cones, rear-end collisions when a driver is driving too fast and can’t stop when traffic comes to a standstill, and collisions with fixed objects like temporary traffic signs, barricades, construction materials, and water or sand barrel crash cushions.
If you have been in a work zone accident, you are not alone. A study published by the American Society of Civil Engineers concluded there were approximately 700 fatalities and 40,000 injuries annually to motorists in work zone crashes. The number one cause of these work zone accidents was driver error, with an average cost of $7,676 per accident. Rear-end collisions were the most common vehicle crashes, accounting for nearly one of every three traffic accidents. About 11 percent of all crashes were caused when cars hit small objects in the work zones.
If you have been involved in a work zone accident, how will you cover those medical bills, and perhaps a lifetime of care?
