Benefits available to injured workers

Being injured on-the-job is a risk that is higher in some occupations than others. As a previous blog post pointed out, construction workers face many dangers. This is especially true for those working in road construction. Our law firm understands the many dangers employees face in work zones. The negligence of another party could result in serious injuries or even death of a worker. Because of this, workers and their loved ones should understand the rights afforded to them.

West Virginia taking steps to improve work zone safety

During the warmer months, residents in West Virginia may notice an increase in road construction sites. While it is easier for construction employees to work outdoors at this time of year, summer also brings an increase in motorists on the roadways. Because of this, motorists and construction workers should understand the risks associated with work zones and work zone accidents.

How can road safety reduce head-on collisions?

Drivers in West Virginia are aware that various types of dangers are present on the roadways all over the state and nation. While driver safety and following the rules of the road could help promote safety, this does not protect drivers from colliding with a negligent driver. Whether it is due to recklessness, distractions or intoxication, a negligent driver could easily be the cause of an automobile crash. Moreover, a negligent driver is more likely to lose control his or her vehicle, causing the vehicle to cross over the centerline and collide head-on with an oncoming vehicle.

It is an unfortunate fact that automobile accidents occur every day on roadways in West Virginia and other states across the nation. While some accidents are based on negligence, driver error, recklessness or even weather conditions, others are caused by a multitude of factors. When this occurs, it is often the case that several motorists are involved in the collision, leading to numerous victims sustaining injuries and damages.
