Whether someone riding a motorcycle is hit by a drunk driver or a pedestrian is struck by an inattentive driver while using a crosswalk, there are all sorts of traffic accidents that claim lives and leave victims with severe injuries. However, road workers and others who find themselves in a work zone often face dangers on a daily basis in Connecticut, and cities nationwide. At Beebe and O'Neil, our law firm is very familiar with the hardships victims of these accidents frequently face.
With work zones, various factors may contribute to an accident. For example, a road worker may sustain a debilitating injury when a vehicle being driven by a fellow worker backs up and strikes them. Or, a road worker may be struck by a driver who failed to pay attention while speeding through a work zone.
After an accident, an array of complications may virtually destroy a road worker's life, as well as their family members' lives. If you were hurt in a work zone accident, you may be required to take time off work as you recuperate from your injury. Moreover, you may have difficulty paying medical costs and other expenses. If you lose your life, your family may be left with many hardships.
However, there are a number of resources that may be able to help you recover from an accident. Depending on what happened, you may want to consider taking legal action against a reckless driver who has caused you suffering.
