Construction Companies Must Keep Construction Zones Safe
Sometimes it seems as though every road is under construction, which can be frustrating and dangerous if the construction zones are not managed properly. Construction companies must keep construction zones safe by ensuring that traffic is routed around it safely, either through the use of orange cones, police or flagmen. Heavy equipment should be prevented from running into traffic or dropping heavy items onto passing vehicles.
Cities And Counties Must Keep Roads Safe
There are guidelines for how roads should be set up. These guidelines are very specific, outlining things like how telephone poles should be placed alongside roads. Failure to follow those guidelines can create a danger for drivers.
We handle all types of road defect cases, including those involving bridges collapsing, abutments falling and defective guardrails.
