Construction Site Car Accidents

Construction Site Car Accidents

Given that major construction jobs are very common in and around the greater Boston area, large groups of people are constantly at risk of injury. The Bureau of Labor studies have shown that due to the dangerous nature of construction work, many individuals are killed on the job or around construction sites ever year. With so much work being done on our roads, millions of drivers are also impacted on their daily commutes. Sometimes, improper signage, debris littering the roads, improperly located construction vehicles, and other negligence on a construction site leads to injuries or wrongful death in a car accident.

Not only are construction sites dangerous for those who work on site, but they are also hazards for drivers who maneuver around the construction obstacles. The hazards that road construction projects can present to drivers include:

  • Distractions: Construction sites add outside distractions to drivers. Distracted drivers may fail to notice warning signs, equipment, or construction workers in their paths.
  • Construction debris: Equipment and materials used in construction projects can add debris to the path of oncoming traffic. To avoid it, a driver might try to swerve and in doing so, potentially cause an accident.
  • Decreased visibility: Construction equipment and procedures often stir up large amounts of dust and dirt into the air, decreasing a driver's visibility range. With decreased visibility comes an increased likelihood of accidents.
  • Lack of warning signs: If drivers are not provided with adequate advance warning of upcoming construction, they might collide with construction materials or drive at speeds that are unsafe for a construction zone.
  • Inaccurate signs: Signs may not properly describe how to navigate through a construction zone, which can lead to head-on collisions if a driver accidentally drives in the lane designated for oncoming traffic.
