Waukesha Construction Site Negligence Attorneys
When a road crew is working, the expectation that most motorists hold is that there will be an appropriate warning before approaching the site, allowing them time to slow down and watch out for workers. But when safety procedures are not properly implemented, construction workers may needlessly increase the risk of damages and injury due to the presence of road construction. Additionally, a sloppily-run or poorly executed project may spill out onto the road, leaving dangerous materials in the pathway of motorists.
If you have been hurt due to unsafe road conditions which were the result of construction site negligence, it may be possible to gain financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.

Dangers Associated with Roadside Construction Sites
Whether a crew is working on the road itself or on a sidewalk project that requires partial obstruction of the roadway, the results can be similarly destructive and disruptive. When roadway construction workers fail to observe the appropriate standards of work safety, the following hazards may arise:
- Tools left in the road
- Collisions with construction vehicles
- Building materials left in the road
- Flying debris
- Poor traffic redirection or management
As drivers need to pay attention when road workers are present in order to keep these individuals safe, these workers need to be equally attentive to the nearby stream of traffic.
