Every Five Minutes, There’s An Auto Accident In A Work Zone
Auto accidents in work zones happen once every 5.4 minutes. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, more than 25 percent of these incidents result in an injury. Likewise, these accidents account for an average of 12 deaths each week. Indeed, work zone crashes account for nearly half of all auto crashes.
If you or a loved one has suffered a work zone accident-related injury, the attorneys at Kyle Law Firm can help. We have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients, and understand how to obtain the best possible legal outcomes.

The Causes Of Work Zone Accidents
There are a variety of factors that can lead to a construction zone accident. These may include:
- Improper warning signage
- Debris left out by workers
- Collisions with stray equipment
- Poor road conditions and poorly marked intersections and curves
- Runoff from work sites caused by rain or sleet
Of course, common driving hazards — distracted drivers, reckless drivers, drunk drivers and the like — also figure as the cause of many work zone accidents. With this in mind, it is important to be always cautious.
Getting The Medical Care And Compensation You Need
Accident victims have an array of immediate concerns. They must find qualified medical care immediately. Likewise, they will face hospital bills, doctors’ fees, prescriptions costs, car repair costs and, if they’re unable to return to work, financial setbacks in the form of lost wages.
