Injured in a road construction accident?
Baker and Zimmerman has helped residents all over south Florida in accidents caused by road construction.
Road Construction and Vehicle Related Accidents and Fatalities
Driving in Florida means adapting and adjusting to match the pace and frequency of road construction. In most counties in the state, construction crews are frequently repairing highways or widening roadways or highways, which often creates stop and go traffic. This makes some drivers uneasy, as they find it almost impossible to avoid the sudden changes in the traffic patterns. As a result, they’re bothered by the slow downs and end up speeding through the construction zone or carelessly weaving in and out of lanes.
Additional hazards are caused by drivers not paying attention to the sudden narrowing of the lanes, a lane closure or uneven payment. Often there isn’t any way to avoid construction zones. And simply put, not all drivers are capable of navigating through the hazards of highway construction.
