Asserting Your Rights After a Roadway Construction Accident
Construction on roads and highways can cause headaches and delays during all but the winter months, irritating residents with long commutes or travel plans. While roadwork can be irritating to drivers, it can be hazardous to construction workers. The dangers of road construction bring together common construction accidents — including falls from ladders and scaffolding, being struck by falling debris and machinery accidents — with the added possibility of being struck by a car, truck or motorcycle.
If you have been injured in a construction accident on a city street, country road or interstate highway, you may be entitled to compensation above and beyond your workers’ compensation coverage. When third parties contribute to your injury, you need an experienced construction accident attorney on your side.

Roadway accidents can be caused by a variety of converging factors, and our knowledge and skill can help clients seek justice and secure full and fair compensation for their injuries. We help construction workers injured in roadway accidents recover compensation from third parties who contributed to the accident, holding them responsible for their negligence.
