How Do Construction Zone Injuries Occur?
Like any accident, it is difficult to anticipate a construction zone accident. Nobody gets into their vehicle expecting to be injured, but even the most cautious drivers can be caught off guard by hazardous road conditions.
In most cases, construction zone accident victims are injured through no fault of their own; rather, it is the recklessness of others that causes the accident. Speeding, following too closely, reckless driving and unexpected lane changes, distracted driving, and impaired driving are all common causes of construction zone accidents. In other cases, the crash is caused by the construction zone itself. Misplaced signs, loose debris, poor lighting, and unsafe equipment handling practices can all endanger the safety of passing motorists.
