Have you been injured in a construction zone accident?
Construction zone accidents on Kansas roads often result in serious or life-threatening injuries. Injuries from construction zones impact your overall physical health and affect the way you live your life.
When a company or the government places a construction zone in the road, there are increased dangers for all drivers. Speed limits are often reduced to limit the number of accidents that occur while a road is under construction. However, dangers still exist and if the government or company working on the road does not follow safety laws, customs, and procedures, it puts every driver on the road at risk.
Laws governing accidents that occur inside of construction zones require a heightened level of awareness of road regulations, which can make these accident cases complex to litigate. If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction zone because of another driver or because of the way the zone was designed, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. An experienced construction zone accident lawyer familiar with Kansas construction laws can help you make sure you’ve pursued every option available to you to recover for your injury.

HIRING CONSTRUCTION ZONE ACCIDENT EXPERTS
Construction accident cases require a heightened knowledge of federal and state regulations, which makes this type of accident case complex and difficult to litigate. It is often appropriate to use expert witnesses whose knowledge and ability to communicate with a judge or jury about industry maintenance standards for construction zones, or the manner in which your accident occurred, that may make a difference in the outcome of your case. Expert witnesses frequently testify about:
- Maintenance standards for construction zones;
- Whether construction employees followed safety laws designed to protect you,
- Standards or customs of reasonable care in the construction industry;
- The chain of events leading to the accident;
- Factors that may have contributed to the construction zone accident, such as negligence, under-staffing, lack of supervision, or the foreseeability of an accident; and
- Recreation of construction zone accident scenes.
Expert witnesses may also help by evaluating and explaining the injuries you or your loved one has suffered. Severe injuries may change your quality of life, your mobility, or the way you complete tasks. Many construction zone cases result in injuries that require victims to undergo extensive surgeries and may leave life-long damage. Experts such as neurologists, surgeons, economists, life-case planners, vocational rehab and physical therapists, are necessary where you or a loved one has been severely injured. It is important to choose an attorney with enough monetary resources to hire the necessary expert witnesses if you hope to obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries.
