Examples of Kansas City Road Repair Accidents
Common causes of highway construction accidents include:
- Drivers speeding in violation of posted construction zone limits or too fast for conditions
- Motorists failing to follow signs and instructions about lane closures, detours and merging
- Distracted drivers
- Drunk drivers
- Tired drivers
- Defective construction equipment caused by manufacturing defects or poor maintenance
- Failing to post adequate warnings
Our lawyers have many years of experience handling complex motor vehicle crash cases. This is particularly important in road construction matters because there may be multiple defendants, including public entities such as cities, counties or states.
Our law firm is well equipped to conduct an in-depth investigation of a construction accident, directing investigators and accident reconstructionists who help us identify responsible parties. We also consult with medical experts and specialists who are able to determine the impact of injuries or death upon a client's life.
We invite you to contact us with questions about the calculations behind a wrongful death claim. Our lawyers will learn about your case, discuss your options and guide you through the legal process. Call us in Kansas City at 816.421.6868.
