If it isn’t winter in Illinois, it’s construction season. It is common to see orange cones, flags, signs, barrels, and saw horses all over Illinois roadways. Construction zones are congested, confusing, and active with construction vehicles, workers, and changing speeds and traffic patterns. These construction zones are dangerous places and pose a risk for accident and injury to not only construction crews, but to drivers as well.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident due to construction, the car accident lawyers at Mike Agruss Law are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected, and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses.
Everyone knows that construction is inevitable, especially with the poor condition of Illinois roadways and bridges. Unfortunately, other drivers and construction crews aren’t always as careful as they should be, putting motorists at risk. Some of the hazards common in construction areas include:
- Poor, confusing, or missing signage
- Equipment or debris left too close to, or in the roadway
- Uneven road surfaces
- Improper lane markings
- Improper lighting
- Distracted driving
- Unexpected detours
Drivers are not the only ones injured or killed in accidents in construction zones. The Federal Highway Administration estimates that 20,000 workers are injured yearly and over 100 are killed in accidents in construction areas due to being run-over or backed-over, caught in a collision between two vehicles, and being struck by construction equipment or other objects.
