CONSTUCTION ZONE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY IN KANSAS CITY & MISSOURI
Our Kansas City / Missouri Construction Zone Accident Lawyers Offer Dedicated Help
Auto accidents may not always be the result of negligence by another driver; bodily injuries can be caused by unsafe roadways due to obstructions, or insufficient detour warnings in construction zones.
If you have been in an accident in one of these situations, you may not be liable for the damages. Construction zones are required to have detailed safety indicators as well as avert traffic away from any major road hazards. If you have been injured due to any of these factors in a construction zone, you could be eligible for significant monetary compensation.
Causes of Construction Zone Accidents
Construction zones alter the normal course of traffic in order to allow workers to complete maintenance on existing highways or finish building new ones. This can lead to car accidents simply because drivers are unprepared for the change in traffic flow, which can change frequently.
There are a number of factors that may cause traffic accidents in construction zones, including:
- Improper or confusing road signage
- Poor road conditions (such as presence of dirt, oil, or rocks)
- Confusing cone patterns
- Distracted drivers
- Sudden changes in traffic flow, such as stopping or speed reduction
If any of these factors were present when you were involved in an accident, you may not be at fault for some or all of the damages sustained, even if you collided with another driver. When this is the case, it is important to retain the services of a skilled and experienced Kansas City car accident lawyer who can review your case before you agree to any liability or accept any settlements from an insurance company.
