Investigating Accidents And Determining Liability
In a construction zone accident, it is critical to investigate the cause of the accident and ask important questions that may determine liability:
- Were motorists properly warned about the construction zone?
- Was proper signage provided?
- Was there debris in the construction zone that contributed to the accident?
- Were there dangerous drop-offs on the road?
- Were there large drop-offs on the shoulder of the road?
Any of these factors can contribute to or cause an auto accident in a construction or highway safety zone. Our lawyers are experienced in the investigation of these types of cases, often working with accident reconstructionists to gain additional evidence. This work can help to determine who is responsible for your accident and injuries.
