Dallas Road Construction Accident
With nearly 1.3 million citizens, Dallas is marked as one of the top ten most populous cities in the United States. With such a high population it makes sense that there are so many drivers, which necessitates construction meant to maintain and expand popular roadways. Those roadways can be made incredibly dangerous during the construction, however. If you or someone close to you has been the victim of a road construction accident in Dallas, especially one where a driver for the construction company was at-fault, attorneys at Carabin Shaw will ensure that you receive the compensation that you are owed for your damages.
While the importance of road maintenance cannot be understated, the dangers presented by poor road planning and sign management are very real. These dangers are not limited purely to passenger drivers, either. It takes one distracted driver with a construction company to cause serious harm to anyone caught in their path. Experienced Dallas Texas injury attorneys at Carabin Shaw have seen how dangerous construction vehicles can be. The sheer size and weight of such vehicles can cause far more harm to another drive than a standard passenger vehicle. Not to mention the large cranes and wreckers that require only the smallest mismanagement to cause irreparable damage.
The damages inflicted by construction drivers in Dallas can be catastrophic. If you have suffered injury in a construction zone, you deserve to work with lawyers who will fight for the maximum compensation that you and your loved ones deserve.Dallas Road Construction Accident
Road construction often leads to unexpected traffic patterns and inconsistent lanes, which stand as some of the root causes of many accidents within Dallas construction zones. However, construction drivers are just as vulnerable to poor driving habits and faulty machinery as any other driver on the road. Depending on the cause of the accident, different parties may be held liable for your damages after being hit by a construction driver.
Causes of such accidents that go beyond the traffic patterns and and re-routed lanes can vary, as with any driver, and include:
- Drunk or intoxicated driving
- Speeding within the construction zone
- Poorly managed road signage
- Fatigued drivers
- Overloaded vehicles
- Poorly maintained breaks
And many other causes. Failure to signal and be aware of surrounding traffic is especially dangerous with construction drivers, as these drivers often must drive through lanes regardless of signage in order to carry loads. Dallas Tx car accident lawyers at Carabin Shaw will investigate every aspect of your accident in order to ensure that the at-fault driver is held accountable for any and all damages you sustained due to their negligence.
Meanwhile, liability may not be limited to just the construction driver. If faulty equipment was involved in causing the accident, then the manufacturer may have some liability. The construction company itself may be found to be at-fault in the case of overworked staff and poor maintenance, or the contractors and managers employed on-site. Liability can be difficult to establish without the counsel of an expert attorney.
