In fact, vehicle occupants were 2-1/2 times as likely to be hurt and twice as likely to be killed in a construction zone accident than the workers.
Any time workers are doing their jobs just a few feet away from fast-moving traffic, it creates a danger – especially to you the driver. As a Colorado accident lawyer, I’ve seen these situations and there are ways to avoid them. So while you regularly hear warnings to slow down and be careful while driving through construction zones, remember that you’re much more likely to be the one who stays safe. And if you’re safe, so are the workers.
