Roadway Construction Accidents

Talented Nashville Personal Injury Attorneys

Some roadways feel like they are perpetually under construction. On these roadways and any others undergoing short-term maintenance and repair work, construction zones can slow traffic down and force drivers into awkward, uncomfortable patterns like having to merge into single lanes and having to follow temporary lines on the road, which can be confusing. Often, lower speed limits are enforced in construction zones to protect motorists and construction workers from harm.

Even with a lowered speed limit, accidents can happen in a construction zone. When they do, motorists and construction workers alike can suffer severe injuries and as a result, face steep financial damages. If you were injured in this type of accident, you have the right to pursue compensation for your damages through a personal injury claim.
