Construction zones are a common sight on Phoenix highways. Usually, road construction is nothing more than a nuisance that slows down your daily commute. However, if a construction zone is not clearly marked and sectioned off, it can pose a serious threat to drivers, increasing the risk of a car accident.
Warning signs and other markings at locations make it easier for drivers to anticipate the hazards of the construction area. Any necessary changes in the flow of traffic should be carefully guided along. If construction workers are negligent, the following factors can lead to a car accident:
- Inadequate warning signs
- Unclear lane markings
- Debris on the road
- Unsafe lane merging
- Lack of personnel to direct traffic
In a construction zone car accident case, more than one party may be ultimately responsible for your injuries.
