Construction zones are more dangerous than other areas of highway for a number of reasons. First, speed limits often change quickly between entering and exiting the construction zone, which can lead to confusion, and can also increase the risk of rear-end collisions when drivers are following too closely.
In addition to the change in speed limit, construction zones are usually much more congested than other parts of the highway. Not only does this mean that navigation might be more precarious, but road rage may be prevalent, too. When construction zones aren’t properly marked, and road signage isn’t clear, these zones can also be confusing. Drivers may mistakenly drive in the wrong lane, take the wrong turn, or otherwise make an error that endangers others. A collision in a construction zone may be caused by various acts of negligence. Some examples include speeding, tailgating, driving while distracted, driving while impaired, and driving aggressively.
In addition to other drivers, blame for an accident may fall on the shoulders of the construction company if a construction company error – such as improperly marking a construction zone or directing drivers – was the cause of the collision.
If you have been in a construction zone accident, you may be coping with numerous different losses, including medical expenses, property damage costs, lost wages, and emotional anguish and physical suffering. For these losses, you deserve to be compensated.
Texas is an at-fault car insurance state, which means that you can file a claim for damages against the at-fault party, be it another driver, the construction company, or another negligent player. In order to recoup your full damages award, you will have to prove that the other party’s negligence was the direct cause of your accident and injuries.
