Accidents During Highway And Roadway Construction

Road construction, particularly in summer months, is a fact of life for people in New York City and across the region. Working on a road project has its own special risks and dangers. One obvious risk is the fact that road construction workers often work in very close proximity to moving vehicles.

The risk of being struck by oncoming traffic is always present in road construction sites. All of the other dangers associated with working in construction apply as well, including heavy machinery, falling objects and other risks.

In this environment, it is unfortunately not a surprise when injuries do occur.

If you or someone you love has sustained a serious injury on a road construction project, it is critical that you work with lawyers who understand the unique nature of these cases. For years, the lawyers of Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., have provided dependable, aggressive representation for injured construction workers.
