Corpus Christi Construction Zone Claim
Driving through the Corpus Christi Bay Area, you’ve probably noticed construction zones on the roadways and highways, like those on Harbor Bridge and I-37. These work zones are a result of large-scale projects including new bridge building and road improvement, as well as maintenance and upgrading of existing roads.
Construction zones can be dangerous places to drive. They are not the same as normal roadways, so it is important for drivers to exercise extreme caution when driving into a designated construction zone. But what happens when a construction company driver does not exercise the same diligence and causes an accident? Then you could have a valid Corpus Christi construction zone claim and should consult with an attorney for guidance.
If you're involved in a car crash while traveling through a work zone or other potentially dangerous area on your commute home from work every day—whether it's completely your fault or not—then you'll probably want legal representation by an experienced car accident lawyer in Corpus Christi who understands how these types of collisions happen and who knows how best to handle them on behalf of their clients' interests.

If you’ve been injured in a construction zone, you may be able to file a claim against the company responsible for the construction zone. To do so, you’ll need to collect evidence of your injuries and hire a lawyer to file a claim on your behalf.
Your counsel will look into the situation and, if they come to the conclusion that the business was at fault for your injuries, they will file a claim against them. Your claim will probably cover your medical fees, other charges, and compensation for the pain and suffering you've incurred as a result of the occurrence.Liability in a Corpus Christi Construction Zone Accident
In general, the company responsible for constructing the road or highway is liable for any accidents that occur in its construction zone. It’s usually best to file a claim first against the construction company that’s responsible for the zone. However, if the accident resulted from carelessness or negligence on the part of a third party, such as a driver, you may also be able to file a claim against that person. This can enable you to collect more compensation, since the at-fault driver will likely have insurance through which you can file a claim, collect payment and then pursue a claim against the construction company.
In the case of a Corpus Christi road construction accident , the government, in this case The Texas Department of Transportation, could also be held liable for your injuries. You can be compensated if the government was negligent when designing, building and maintaining roads and up-keep in a construction zone. Also, when a driver with the city causes your accident due to negligence, you may be able to recover damages.Texas Personal Injury Attorneys at Carabin Shaw Provide Free Consultations
