New York City Roadway Construction Accident Attorney

Roadway Accidents in New York City

When road work is underway, it is essential that the work site is safe.  Any failure in protecting workers or slowing or diverting traffic can lead to devastating injuries. If you have been injured in a roadway construction accident, contact the law offices of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff and Wolff LLP. Since 1922, we have been assisting residents in New York City pursue fair compensation for their injuries incurred due to negligence on the part of others.

Examples of Roadway Construction Accidents

Although there are many different ways accidents can occur on a roadway construction site, some types are more common than others:

  • Flagman struck by passing vehicles – It’s the job of the flagman to be in the line of traffic, directing cars in a construction zone to ensure the safety of those working there. Flagmen face a significantly greater risk of being struck by an inattentive or reckless driver. These risks increase if you have not been properly positioned or have not received proper training for the work you are expected to do.
  • Roadway laborers struck by passing vehicles – Construction workers who are active in the work zone can also be struck by passing vehicles. This can be the result of driver error or inadequate attention to creating a sufficient safety zone around the work error.
  • Workers struck by construction equipment – Roadway construction workers can be seriously injured by the heavy equipment necessary for executing road repairs. Common accidents of this type are being struck by a dump truck that is backing up or getting stuck between a piece of construction equipment and an object.

Who is Liable in a Roadway Accident?

In a roadway accident, multiple parties may be liable for a serious accident. The drivers on the road are responsible for being attentive in a construction zone – actions such as texting while driving and being inattentive behind the wheel can lead to an accident that holds them fully responsible.

Additionally, construction workers may also be held liable, if they are improperly operating on the site and creating danger by walking in and out of the road. In this case, construction companies may also be liable for any damages if their safety and training practices were not properly conducted.

Why Do Roadway Construction Accident Victims Need a Lawyer?

Determining liability in a roadway construction accident can often be complicated, as it may involve multiple parties – and in some cases, even the construction company itself. In these cases, a strong, experienced lawyer is required to help initiate a thorough investigation to determine liability.

Additionally, dealing with insurance companies can often be a stressful endeavor – especially those covering large businesses such as construction companies. Often, these companies may offer a settlement that is far lower than initially thought, with the hopes that victims will take this quick settlement and not pursue the issue further. A skilled accident attorney can prevent any lowball offers, instead, negotiating for the maximum possible compensation needed for you to get back on track.
