Causes of Road Construction Accidents
Determining liability is the first step in handling a road construction accident case. Our firm works with public roadway design engineers to investigate the accident scene and road conditions. We determine whether design, structure, or security issues played a part in the cause of the accident.
Some common causes of car accidents in road construction zones include:
- Poorly designed roads
- Missing signage indicating road construction

- Improperly placed roadblocks
- Narrow lanes with no shoulder
