Road Construction Can Make Roads More Dangerous

Construction zones in Pennsylvania and New Jersey are supposed to be well marked and drivers are required to follow special rules when moving through them. Likewise, road crews are required to make sure the lanes are set up properly and equipment, material and debris are removed, keeping the roadway safe for drivers. Despite strict regulations, numerous motor vehicle accidents and injuries occur in road construction zones throughout the Lehigh Valley.

If you were injured in a car, truck or motorcycle accident in a construction zone, or because of hazardous road conditions in the Lehigh Valley, call me. My name is attorney Edward Shaughnessy. I am an experienced Allentown lawyer who has been helping people fight for full and fair money damages from insurance companies and public entities held liable for compensating people for financial damages.

When Roads Are Insufficiently Safe

Common causes of motor vehicle accidents because of hazardous road conditions in construction zones include:

  • Uneven road surface
  • Materials, debris and equipment obstructing traffic lanes
  • Speeding, reckless driving in narrow construction lanes
  • Improper signage
  • Icy and wet road surfaces because of improper drainage
  • Construction truck collisions
