Work Zone Accident Representation In West Virginia
Road signs urge drivers to slow down for work zones for a reason. Work zones are dangerous places, and people who drive too fast put construction workers and other drivers at risk.
At Warner Law Offices our attorneys represent people who have been injured in work zone accidents due to the negligence of others. If you have been injured or a family member has been killed, we will work hard to hold the careless driver accountable.
If you are injured on the job, you have a right to receive benefits from West Virginia workers’ compensation regardless of who was at fault. In the case of fatal accidents, workers’ compensation offers benefits to the worker’s survivors.
However, workers’ compensation may not be your only source of recovery. Our attorney s can help you recover additional compensation from the negligent driver and his or her insurance company.
Work zones can be hazardous even for people who slow down and drive safely. Loose gravel, uneven pavement, improper signage and construction debris can leave roadways in an unsafe condition. Careless drivers who speed or make unsafe lane changes can cause multicar collisions.
In any work zone accident, our attorneys will carefully examine the circumstances and consider all potential sources of liability, including other drivers and the construction company responsible for the road project.
