Car accidents happen due to negligence, aggressive driving and external factors that a responsible driver can’t react to quickly enough to avoid collision. Construction sites are one of those external factors where a lot of things can happen that even a careful driver can’t avoid. Improper signage, sharp turns, unsafe road conditions and crowded areas make it difficult to navigate. Hinkle Law Offices provides representation for those who’ve dealt with car accidents caused by construction sites.
How Do Construction Sites Cause Car Accidents?
A construction site is a complicated area with a lot happening. Traffic is being redirected to make room for the construction, signs are posted to show what areas are off-limits and there’s a lot of activity. This can make it very easy for even a responsible driver to misjudge a turn. If speed limits aren’t clearly posted, a driver can go too fast and lose control when the road surface changes.
Debris can litter the roadway and damage your vehicle, causing a car accident. Poor lighting or misplaced indicators can mislead a driver into thinking a particular pathway is safe when it isn’t. If a construction site isn’t carefully maintained and organized, car accidents can happen regularly, leaving you stuck with damage to your vehicle and even injury.
