Riverside Road Construction Accident Lawyer
The exact number of car accidents that occur in construction work zones varies from year to year, generally ranging from 67,000 to 90,000. When they do occur, there is often a great deal of confusion as to who was actually at fault.
Of course, identifying fault is essential in order to receive compensation for injuries and other damages. This process can be made much easier with the help of a Riverside road construction accident lawyer from Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP.
How Common Are Roadwork Accidents?
According to the US Department of Transportation, car crashes in work zones tend to mirror car accidents in general. This means that while you are not necessarily more likely to be injured in a work zone, how these accidents happen is often quite different from other car crashes.
While many road construction car accidents are some form of rear-end collision or sideswipe, they also often involve dangerous road features, construction equipment, confusing signs, and barriers and road cones.
Negligence: Who Is at Fault?
Your Riverside road construction accident lawyer will know how to analyze your car accident to determine what caused it, something that is necessary for proving negligence.
This is critical to the process, because if you were 100 percent to blame for the accident, you would not qualify for financial compensation. Therefore, we need to demonstrate that the accident was caused at least in part by one of the following:
- Actions taken by the road crew
- A lack of signage or warnings
- Unsafe road conditions
- Faulty equipment or parts
- Another driver
Our investigation will be thorough, and we will identify all parties that played a role in your accident. Next, we will gather evidence and build a strong case for why you deserve compensation. Your Riverside road construction accident lawyer will then file a lawsuit on your behalf and represent you during both negotiations and trial (if one becomes necessary).
Receiving Financial Compensation
We are here to help you receive as much money as possible for your injuries. To do so, we will need to analyze all of the ways that your injuries have impacted your life. This goes far beyond simply calculating what your medical expenses have been to date:
- Lost income resulting from taking time off from work for medical care
- What medical expenses you are likely to incur in the future
- If you need any additional rehabilitation therapies
- Any other losses and damages resulting from your accident
Any information you can provide, such as pay stubs, receipts, or bills, helps your Riverside road construction accident lawyer ensure that you receive all of the compensation you deserve.
