Corpus Christi Road Construction Accident Lawyers
Corpus Christi is a bustling city that is home to hundreds of thousands of people. It also welcomes millions of visitors each year to its destination beaches and other attractions. With plenty of traffic, there is also plenty of road construction and opportunities for accidents.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, in Texas in 2021, more than 26,000 accidents occurred in construction zones. Motor vehicle accidents in work zones can be traumatic and result in serious damage to vehicles or personal injuries that wrack up expensive medical bills.
If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident in a work or construction zone, someone else may be at fault. Texas car accident injury attorneys at Carabin Shaw will conduct a thorough investigation of your case and fight for you to receive compensation.What Is a Road Construction Accident?
A road construction accident is a motor accident that occurs in a work or construction zone, which is an area of a road with maintenance or utility-work activities. A work zone is typically marked by signs, channeling devices, barriers, and/or pavement markings.
For motorists, work zones can be challenging and nerve-wracking to navigate. For construction workers, they can be outright dangerous. There are often large construction vehicles mulling around, uneven pavement, lane changes, concrete barriers, construction barrels, and more.
For this reason, there are often special laws and speed limits for motorists driving in construction zones. For workers, employers are required to provide the proper safety gear and training.Who Can Be Injured in a Road Construction Accident?
Both motorists and workers can be victims of road construction accidents. An injury lawyer in Corpus Christi can represent both.Who Is at Fault for a Road Construction Accident?
Do you believe another person is at fault for your accident? Who is at fault depends on your case. If you are a motorist, then another driver, a worker, or the construction company may be responsible for your accident. If you are a worker, then a motorist may be at-fault. Alternatively, your employer may be liable to compensate you. A lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation of your case to help prove another party is at fault.What Compensation Can You Receive?
Road construction accidents can be costly, but they can also result in non-economic losses, including pain and suffering, enjoyment of life, and more. Corpus Christi car accident lawyers can help you receive compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation bills
- Damages to property, such as your vehicle
- Lost wages due to missed work

If you are a worker who has been injured in a road construction accident, you may be liable to receive compensation for your injuries from your employer. Texas does not require employers to have workers’ compensation coverage, but if your employer does not carry this insurance, you may still be able to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and more by filing a personal injury lawsuit in order.Get a Free Case Review
