Road Construction Accidents

Construction Zone Auto Crashes

Road work can be confusing -- and therefore dangerous -- to the motoring public. Willis, Willis & Rizzi Co., L.P.A. has successfully represented drivers who were injured in road construction accidents in Northeast Ohio.

Our Akron law firm takes cases in Summit County, surrounding counties and statewide in which the negligence of state and/or private road crews, construction management firms or highway engineers led to serious injury, permanent disability or a fatal car crash.

Let our lawyers determine if a private construction company or governmental entity bears liability for your road construction accident. We offer a free case evaluation and a reputation for aggressive representation and personalized attention.

We have also represented road construction workers injured by motorists who did not heed proper warning signs or construction zone speed limits.

Highway and road construction is strictly regulated with different rules for a fixed construction site versus mobile construction and maintenance work such as re-striping, re-paving or pothole repair. Our knowledgeable attorneys are familiar with the regulations, and we have access to experts in accident reconstruction, engineering and highway safety to prove the violations or errors that caused our client's crash:

  • Improper or misleading signage
  • Hazards created by detours
  • Steep shoulder drop-offs
  • Lack of warning signs, flashing lights, cones or barriers
  • Negligence of flag crews
  • Construction vehicles backing into live traffic
  • Negligence of other drivers in construction-related, rear-end collisions

The city, county or ODOT may have immunity from lawsuits, but a private construction firm or subcontractor does not. And even government entities can be sued when there is clear negligence. The only way to know if you have a claim is to consult a law firm with experience in these cases.
