There are many hazards that drivers have to face on roads and highways in New York. One of the most dangerous of those hazards is road construction. Construction is often necessary to maintain and improve transportation, but while it is ongoing, the changes and confusion associated with construction areas can result in serious accidents. Drivers, passengers and construction workers may all suffer injuries in these types of road construction accidents.
There are many examples of conditions involving road construction where accidents can happen.
A flag person may be struck by a vehicle that is going too fast or whose driver is not aware of the surroundings. Scaffolding and other structures may collapse onto cars and vehicles below, while also causing workers to fall. Asphalt trucks, dump trucks, and other large construction vehicles can strike other cars on the road. Proper warning signs may not be affixed to large holes in the roads, which are then hit by unaware vehicles.
