Was Your Car Accident Caused by Road Construction Debris?

In the State of Florida, it’s almost always road construction season. While road construction ultimately helps keep our roads safer for all who travel on them, the road construction itself can be extremely dangerous – especially when it is poorly orchestrated. One of the major dangers associated with road construction is debris-strewn roads.

Road construction is a necessary evil. We need to maintain and improve our roads, and road construction is the mechanism for doing so. That said, the construction companies doing the work owe motorists a duty of reasonable care, which means that they must conduct construction efforts and activities in a safe manner for motorists. The construction company and its employees must implement careful safety standards in order to help ensure everyone’s safety.

In fact, you may find yourself on a one-way road that’s already decreased in width with traffic right behind you – leaving you nowhere to go if you come up against debris, and the results can be deadly.

When it comes to road construction, debris can come in many shapes and sizes, including:

The construction company employed in doing the road work is responsible for having a thorough safety plan that addresses keeping dangerous debris off the road and is also responsible for effectively implementing that safety plan.
