There are certain parties at a construction zone that are responsible for making sure the area is safe, carefully designed, and properly maintained. If one of these parties fails to uphold this duty, it can lead to them being held liable for any injuries that may occur as a result.
Some of these parties include the following:
In particular, New York has very specific rules about how vehicular traffic should be redirected (or “channelized”) through work zones. When construction zones are not set up properly, drivers can easily get confused and cause preventable collisions.
In addition to pedestrian and passenger vehicle drivers, construction workers are particularly vulnerable to suffering injuries in construction zone accidents. Many workers are injured every year due to either negligent driving by individuals around the construction zone or because of the lack of safety protection.
You can be confident in our ability to obtain just compensation for injured construction workers. Just a few years ago, our firm obtained a settlement of more than $4.5 million for an excavator who was hit by a car while working.
