According to the Utica Regional Director for the New York State Department of Transportation, motorists should travel through roadway construction sites with care. Due to an increase in funding secondary to the economic recovery package, there will be more construction sites than usual during the Summer of 2009.
The New York State Department of Transportation has asked drivers to obey posted signage, obey flagpersons, maintain a safe distance between you and the car in front of you and, most importantly, slow down. After speeding, most roadway construction accidents are due to driver negligence, such as inattention due to conversations with passengers, or talking on a cellular telephone.
The trial lawyers at Bottar Leone, PLLC, have decades of experience investigating, prosecuting and trying to verdict all types of roadway construction site and motor vehicle accident cases. If you were injured while working along a roadway, or at a roadway construction site, you and/or your family may be entitled to compensation for lifelong health care, medical expenses, medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
