Throughout Ohio and northern Kentucky, road construction is common. In Cincinnati alone, work is beginning on several major construction projects right in downtown. Care must be taken by those managing construction sites to ensure that traffic is safely diverted around the project. Failure to do so could result in serious car accidents.
At the law firm of Gregory S. Young Co., LPA, our Cincinnati construction zone car accident attorneys bring decades of experience to these cases. We know how to build cases for maximum compensation, starting first with an investigation to determine what went wrong and who was responsible for the accident.
Types Of Highway Construction Accidents
Auto accidents in construction zones can be the result of improper signage. For example, if detour signs are not posted and cones or barrels are not used to close off the area where work is being done, a car could drive in and collide with construction equipment or debris.
Other construction zone accidents involve the negligent actions of construction workers. Construction vehicles that back out of a construction zone into oncoming traffic can cause major collisions. Similarly, equipment that is not operated correctly could drop or knock concrete blocks, girders, glass or debris onto traffic, leading to catastrophic injuries or wrongful death. These accidents could also be the result of defective equipment.
Depending on the results of our investigation, we may have to take action against the manufacturer of a defective piece of road construction equipment, the construction company or the municipality where the construction took place. We have the experience to manage claims against multiple parties in order to maximize your compensation.
