Pittsburgh Area Car Accidents
Road construction zones can be very dangerous places for motorists and construction workers alike. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2010 saw the deaths of 23 people in Pennsylvania road construction zone accidents. Road construction crews deal with heavy equipment and treacherous working conditions on the job site as well as the heavy traffic passing by, sometimes just a few feet away. Motorists driving through construction zones face unfamiliar and sometimes confusing road configurations that can often be difficult to navigate.
Pennsylvania has specific safety regulations that govern how construction zones should be set up, and strict laws have been passed in an effort to control speeding and reckless driving in construction zones. Still, injuries to workers and serious traffic accidents continue to happen with troubling regularity.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a road construction zone accident, the experienced personal injury attorneys at Berger and Green are ready to help. We represent victims across Pennsylvania on all sides of these cases, including road construction workers, drivers, passengers, pedestrians and others.
