Like many other areas, Montgomery County drivers will have to navigate around construction projects all summer. While the results should provide safer roadways, the current roadwork could make driving dangerous. Current major projects in the Dayton area include:
Road construction is difficult for drivers because it often requires them to navigate narrowed lanes, follow unfamiliar detours, and make sudden stops. If a driver is not paying attention, they can cause an accident or possibly even strike a construction worker. In fact, the U.S. Department of Transportation provided data that shows there were nearly 100,000 car accidents in work zones in 2015.
If you were hurt by someone who wasn’t practicing safe driving in a construction zone, you are entitled to seek damages for your injuries. Additionally, a construction worker who was hit by a vehicle may be permitted to file a third-party lawsuit against the driver for their injuries, even if they receive workers’ compensation benefits from their employer.
