Construction Zone Accidents

Minnesota & Nebraska Highway Road Construction Accident Lawyers

Construction zones on Minnesota’s highways can be dangerous. There are cones or barrels marking where cars can or cannot go, heavy machinery, loose objects, and people everywhere working on the road. Because of Minnesota’s climate, road construction is something that is quite common, but that doesn’t reduce the likelihood of accidents occurring in one of these zones. The number of projects that are ongoing at any given time and the speed in which they need to be completed puts both road construction workers and motorists at risk.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction zone accident or a loved one was killed, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Fighting For A Better Future For The injured

When you speak with an experienced attorney, it is possible for you to file a personal injury case that can lead to you obtaining compensation that will cover your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to the accident. One of the first things that we do is ensure that you receive the medical attention that you need so that you can be on the road toward having a better quality of life.

If you are a worker that was injured on the job in a construction zone, you may be able to receive benefits through workers’ comp or you may already be receiving workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, those benefits are not enough to sustain you for the long-term, so it is important to hold any third parties responsible if they were negligent at the site. Your attorneys will be able to advise you as to which is the best course of action to take.

Holding The Negligent Accountable

There are many reasons why construction zone accidents happen. One is the driver who refuses to slow down or the motorist that drives through the barriers. Motorists can be hurt due to spilled debris on the roadway or lack of warning signs telling them that there are hazards.

Regardless of which category you fall into, your personal injury attorney will be able to help you file a solid claim that could secure fair and full compensation for you so that you can pay the expenses related to the accident.
