Construction sites are a necessary part of our daily lives. Some modicum of risk is always involved in places like these, and no one is ever 100% safe when at a construction site, not even with the proper safety equipment. Accidents do happen, and when they do, it's important to have a construction zone injury attorney in Fort Lauderdale to help.

Construction Sites vs Construction Zones

Something that can be slightly confusing is the difference between a construction site and a construction zone. Sometimes the two are used interchangeably. A construction site generally refers to the construction of a building or structure, while a construction zone can generally refer to ongoing construction that is happening to a road or freeway. Naturally, through the very fact that construction zones tend to be on the open road, these can be a lot more dangerous. Distracted drivers, for example, can be a very dangerous thing to have around active construction zones. Distracted drivers come in many varieties of forms, but many follow three specific types of distraction:

  • Cognitive Distraction: Generally, when your mind is not 100% engaged with driving safely. This can come from being sleepy or being intoxicated in some way, but also from simply being mentally engaged with literally anything else other than driving.
  • Manual Distraction: Eating, texting, drinking, adjusting your navigation app, or doing generally anything else with your hands other than having them be on the wheel and attentively controlling your vehicle.
  • Visual Distraction: Looking at anything other than the road in front of you, as well as your mirrors around you. Visual distractions can come in an amazingly large amount of forms, especially in the visually distraction age we live in. This can include billboards, your phone, that funny looking cow you’re driving by, the building sign you’re reading off as you’re looking for that one store your buddy told you about. Anything.

No matter the signs and bright orange objects placed in the way to make sure they can be seen, distracted drivers are an impossible thing to avoid, and so, when you encounter one, a Fort Lauderdale car accident lawyer can be a handy thing to have.

Workers in Construction Zone Car Crashes

Construction workers in construction zones are very much considered pedestrians when involved in car accidents. They can be in some of the most dangerous positions when it comes to such accidents, as they are exposed to direct impacts that can result in extremely serious injuries that can cause them to lose limbs, motor function, or even their lives. While their company cannot be the target of a lawsuit thanks to worker’s compensation, they are instead able to direct a lawsuit onto the driver that may be responsible for their injuries. Our Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyers can and will hire experts where necessary to investigate the construction zone accident. These experts will look at a variety of factors, including going so far as reconstructing the accident should it be necessary.
