ABOUT ROAD CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS

ROAD CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS
Road construction companies have a duty to their workers and the driving public to maintain safe conditions on construction sites. When they fail to adhere to this responsibility, accident victims may have a legal remedy. However, these are typically not simple cases.

Drivers and workers interact daily at construction sites relying on construction companies to be safe, and a vast majority of those sites are in fact safe. But when municipalities and/or companies put profits before basic safety – either through negligent roadway design, inadequate signage, or a variety of other ways – we help hold them accountable to make sure that the resulting injuries or deaths don’t happen again. Our clients, whether drivers or construction-site workers, want answers, and they want to make a difference. We help them do that.

The design of a road-construction site requires nothing short of acute attention to detail and an intricate eye for safe design. Unfortunately, the many nuances that must be considered during the design phase of a road or highway are often overlooked in part or in full, thus creating defective flaws that leave drivers who travel through these sites – or construction personnel working there – at a significantly greater risk of being involved in an accident.

After a car collision of any degree, a critical component of the investigations should include an extensive look into the design of the road upon which the accident occurred. If defects are found in the road’s design, or lapses are discovered in the site’s maintenance, then legal action should be taken immediately

We represent clients who were injured or whose loved ones died in a road construction accident. We prepare each case thoroughly in anticipation of a jury trial if that becomes necessary. With nearly 40 years of experience in handling complex and challenging negligence cases, Montross Miller provides clients with effective and sophisticated representation and counsel at all stages of the legal matter. We work with nationally known experts and specialists, including engineers, physicians, traffic experts and construction managers. Our attorneys have access to consultants such as these who help us understand all aspects of the case and the catastrophic consequences of the roadway construction accident.

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
Motorcycles indeed “are everywhere” and when they are involved in a collision with another vehicle, the results are predictably serious. We feel very strongly about protecting the rights of motorcyclists. Motorcyclists have an obligation to operate their cycle sensibly and within the law. Motorcyclists are, relatively speaking, largely unprotected. That, coupled with the fact that motorcyclists can often be difficult to see, does not mean that the motorist in a larger vehicle is somehow less responsible for being alert and on the lookout for nearby motorcycles. Motorcyclists are legally allowed to ride on the streets, roads and highways and should their rights be violated, assuming the motorcyclist was riding his or her motorcycle in a responsible manner, responsibility for the accident often times is attributed to the motorist of the automobile or other, larger vehicle. Since the injuries are often serious, we maintain close contact with our clients’ medical providers so that we can better understand the patient’s medical condition and extent of their injuries, the projected ability to recover from these injuries, the impact on the patient’s financial status, and future, quality-of-life issues. We take this information and factor it in to our evaluation that we present to the insurance company or if necessary, the jury. We work on each case assuming that we will take the client’s case to trial, even though, in many cases, insurance companies decide instead to settle out of court. In 2015, for example, we settled a case involving motorcycle accident death for $2.1 million.
