In many states, traffic violations in work zones result in driver fines that are double the normal amount. This measure is designed to help discourage unsafe driving and protect construction site workers. However, construction workers are not the only ones who need protection. In fact, carelessness at road construction sites can lead to dangerous situations for nearby drivers.
Construction site managers are responsible for keeping their sites clean and clear of dangerous debris. Unfortunately, however, this does not always happen. If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident due to construction site negligence, you can fight back.

Types of Construction Site Negligence
Construction site crews have a number of responsibilities in order to keep both workers and nearby drivers safe. If they fail in any of these duties, devastating accidents can occur. Common types of construction site negligence include:
- Lack of necessary construction zone warning signs
- Lack of barriers to block drivers from the construction zone
- Debris left on the roadway
- Large machinery left on or near the roadway
Many times, construction must occur when there is still traffic nearby. Thus, it is vital that construction crews take care of their sites to protect themselves as well as drivers.
Construction site workers are not the only ones who can be hurt due to construction site negligence. If you are a victim of construction site negligence, you should contact a knowledgeable lawyer from Habush Habush & Rottier at 800-2-HABUSH (800-242-2874) today for a free initial consultation.
