What Are My Legal Options?
The standard of care for roadway construction is set forth in the manual for uniform traffic control devices (MUTCD) which has been adopted by all states including Washington DC. Those who may have claims relating to roadway construction negligence include those working on the roadway, other drivers on the roadway and pedestrians. If there was negligence in this accident then it is important to establish who was at fault and how much your case may be worth. The negligent party should be held accountable so that this type of accident may be avoided in the future.
If you have been injured in a roadway construction accident then it is important to contact an attorney right away before critical evidence is lost. Witnesses can disappear and medical records can be lost.
Some injuries may not be properly documented which can have a negative effect on the outcome of your injury case. Some injuries show up later and can often be dismissed without the help of expert witnesses that a lawyer can help to provide you with. With a reliable attorney working on your case these things will be taken care of so that you will not have to worry about the details of your case.
An attorney can document all of the information on your case and make sure that your injury claim is as strong as possible. This will help to insure that you will receive a fair amount of money for your injuries and that you will be taken care of. Unpaid medical bills can pile up very quickly after this type of an accident so it is important to make sure that you and your attorney have a plan in place to take care of that.
Roadway construction accidents can cause very serious injuries that can cost a great deal of money for long term medical care as well as a loss of wages for the injured party. This can be detrimental for a family who relies on the income from that job in order to get by.
