Do I Need A Lawyer After A Construction Vehicle Accidents?
We have all been there, work zones with big orange signs and big trucks that at times are inconveniently park as necessary work is performed for the maintenance of roads, sidewalks and even private properties. In California, these areas are at times close to signs that state that fines are twice as much near the “cone zones”. As a result, most people are extra careful around these areas, but then sometimes an accident happens.
Construction zone vehicles are usually big, bulky and slow. They have a hard time maneuvering and because of their size and bulkiness they tend to cause a lot of property damage to cars and at unfortunate times, serious injuries. Below is a list of construction zone vehicles that typically cause accidents:
- Truck Cranes
- Cement Mixing Trucks
- Asphalt Machines
- Dump or Waste Trucks
- Road Rollers
If you were unable to avoid a collision with a construction vehicle, the first thing to do is not to panic. If the accident is severe enough call 911 and check for injuries. You should also not let yourself be intimidated by the construction zones signs as it may actually not be your fault. It’s important to consult with an Injury Attorney to determine whether the city, the private contractor or another party at play may also have liability for the loss. In fact, there are several factors that come into play in a construction zone or “cone zone” accident. For example, a construction zone accident may be caused by negligent hiring or retention of unqualified operators by a contractor. Similarly, an accident may be caused by a construction vehicle backing up in an unsafe manner, equipment failure and/or an improperly loaded vehicle. While a construction zone accident may also be caused by the driver being distracted it’s important to have an experienced traffic/car accident attorney make that determination.
