Roadway construction sites can be a very serious road hazard. They are often the cause of pile-up collisions if they involve sudden lane changes or require quick braking on the highway. It is the responsibility of the construction crew or the construction company in charge of the roadway construction site to implement certain safety measures to help ensure that car wrecks do not happen.
Unfortunately, there are some construction companies or crews that fail to take the necessary precautions to protect drivers and passengers and thus may be found liable for any serious injuries or deaths that occur as a result of their negligence.
