Car Accident at Construction Site: Who’s Responsible?

Construction is an important part of city repair and expansion, but it’s not something that most people like to drive through. When you have to go through a work site in Charlotte, it is important to pay attention to the signs given. Slowing down, staying alert, and being careful is always recommended on construction sites. 

Unfortunately, accidents do happen. When they do, you need to know who is at fault for your car accident. You need to know who is going to cover the damages that you’ve experienced because of this accident at the construction site, whether that’s another driver, the construction companies, or another liable party. Talk to the lawyers at The Nye Law Group for guidance. 

Construction Companies May Be Liable

Most construction done on roadways in North Carolina is done through private construction companies. The companies are required to give adequate warnings ahead of the road work to reduce the chances of accidents. When the company fails to do this though, accidents can happen. That puts both drivers and construction workers at risk

When accidents happen due to inadequate signage or warning, the construction company is typically at fault. This signage is important to keep roadways safe while giving drivers enough time to slow down and stay alert. 

Any situations where the construction company failed to act with care may be grounds for a lawsuit. For example, if they left hazards in the way of drivers or failed to direct them around these hazards, that can lead to serious injuries. Talk to your lawyer about your options for suing if you’ve been hurt in one of these accidents

Other Drivers May Be Responsible

In some cases, the other driver may be at fault. They may have been speeding through the construction zone and hit you, or they may have been driving drunk, distracted, or drowsy. That type of carelessness can lead to severe injuries and damage to your vehicle. 

In these cases, the at-fault party’s insurance company should cover your losses. Unfortunately, insurance companies are for-profit businesses, meaning paying out for your injuries isn’t their first priority. You may have determined the at-fault party, but you may still have trouble getting coverage. 

When this happens, you may need help from a car accident lawyer. They have the resources to negotiate with the insurance company. If the insurance company continues to act in bad faith, your lawyer can help you file a claim and can represent you in the courtroom.
