Roadside Construction Negligence
City and state agencies are often responsible for maintaining and improving the streets, roads, and highways. Some large-scale projects can take a significant amount of time, forcing companies to leave vehicles and construction material on-site while they attempt to complete the project. Unfortunately, failure to properly store or warn oncoming drivers of the presence of construction equipment or vehicles may result in serious accidents and injuries.
It is the responsibility of project workers and managers to make sure that construction equipment does not endanger other drivers on the roadway, and failure to do so may result in a personal injury lawsuit for negligence.

- Failure to signal roadwork being performed
- Failure to give adequate notice of roadwork being performed
- Leaving construction materials or debris in the roadway
- Causing damage to high-traffic areas
- Failure to use proper signage to alert drivers of construction sites
