  • Construction Zone Accidents

Construction zone accidents involving trucks and semis are particularly dangerous because the size, weight, and speed of a truck can cause severe damage to other vehicles, their occupants and construction workers. When a driver is negligent or disregards public safety by speeding through a construction zone, The Roberts Law Firm P.C. will aggressively pursue damages for the victims and their family.

Truck Driver Liability

Truck drivers are held to a clear standard of accountability as a result of the dangers they pose to others on the road. Whether the injured party was another driver, construction worker or a passenger in a vehicle, Roberts will work to ensure the negligent truck driver, trucking company and insurance company are held responsible for the injuries caused to a victim in a work zone or construction zone accident.

The Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that in 2008 there were 720 fatalities resulting from motor vehicle crashes in work zones.

Compensation for Tractor-Trailer Accidents

The insurance companies and claims adjusters representing trucking companies and truck drivers are often highly skilled and aggressive and present low offers of settlement designed to give you less than your case is truly worth. The trucking company and its insurance company will also hire an experienced lawyer to defend its position. You need legal counsel with experience for your case. Contact us for a free consultation.

Prosecuting a Construction Zone Accident Case

If you or a family member has been injured in a construction zone accident, there may be multiple parties liable for compensating you for your injuries.

Working with accident reconstruction specialists as well as professionals experienced in dealing with road design and construction may allow us to effectively prove that the truck driver, road construction company, or trucking company should be held liable for your injuries.
