Road Construction Accidents
Striving to Recover the Maximum Compensation You Deserve
Road construction is an ongoing occurrence throughout New York City and the surrounding area. Unfortunately, driving through these areas can be hazardous. When proper safety precautions aren’t taken by the construction company or the applicable government entity, accidents can arise that cause serious injuries.
If you were hurt in a road construction accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your economic and non-economic damages. However, liability for these types of accidents can be complex and it’s crucial to have an experienced attorney who can conduct a thorough investigation and protect your legal rights. At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, our personal injury lawyers provide diligent representation and untiring advocacy to help ensure the responsible party answers for their negligence — and you receive the monetary recovery you deserve for your injuries.
Skillful Negotiators and Effective Litigators for Road Construction Accidents
While car crashes in construction zones can be caused by speeding, inattentive, or reckless driving, accidents in these locations aren’t always caused by negligent drivers. In some cases, they can be caused by dangerous road conditions caused by the carelessness of a construction company or municipality. Importantly, the parties involved in a road construction project have a duty to ensure the construction area is safe. Failure to do so can lead to liability for any accident-related injuries that arise as a result.
At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we provide skillful representation to clients who have been injured in road construction accidents, including those caused by the following:
- Construction debris or materials
- Failure to use adequate signage
- Unreasonably narrow lanes
- Poorly designed traffic control
- Particles blown onto the road
- Potholes, cracks, and depressions
- Decrease in visibility
Road construction accidents often involve complicated facts and legal nuances. In some cases, the at-fault construction company or municipality might try to shift the blame to you and allege that your driving conduct contributed to the accident — but this doesn’t necessarily bar you from receiving compensation. Our legal team knows how to skillfully oppose claims of comparative negligence to maximize your recovery. We know what it takes to investigate your case and prove the defendant’s negligence to obtain justice in your case.

At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we have the knowledge and acumen necessary to pursue claims against municipalities and construction companies to help secure the compensation you’re eligible to receive.
