    Why you need a Denver road construction accident lawyer

    Construction zone accidents can be complex due to the circumstances of the collision and legal issues. Negligent parties often blame construction conditions or the accident victim for the collision. Government entities responsible for road construction have special immunity provisions that limit their responsibility for motor vehicle collisions caused by negligent construction conditions. You need an experienced Denver road construction accident lawyer on your side to advocate for your interests. Our knowledgeable car accident attorneys will investigate your case, assess the parties to pursue for compensation and make sure all of the right processes are followed to pursue your claims.

    Common causes of construction zone accidents in Colorado

    Colorado has a large number of construction zones each year due to winter precipitation, icy mountain roads and a growing population. Construction zones create an increased risk of car accidents due to additional hazards such as:

    • inadequate barriers and signage
    • Sharp turns and sudden merges
    • Uneven or unstable pavement
    • Poor lighting
    • inefficient traffic control 
    • confusing or inaccurate lane markings
    • construction materials or debris in the roadway

    Work zone accidents can be made more likely by negligent driving including:

    • distracted driving
    • aggressive driving
    • speeding
    • failure to use turn signals
    • sudden braking
    • ignoring traffic and construction warning signs
    • unsafe merging
    • drunk driving

    Who is liable for my work zone accident injuries?

    Determining who is liable for your road construction accident injuries is not an easy task. In addition to parties pointing the finger at you or other parties, there may be several parties that share responsibility for your injuries. Road construction companies have a duty to make construction sites reasonably safe and warn of existing hazards. Additionally, government entities overseeing construction may share blame. Negligent drivers may also be liable for your injuries. Determining who may be at fault and how to pursue claims requires an experienced road construction accident attorney to advocate for your rights and hold responsible parties accountable.
