In 2004, the Insurance Journal reported that at least 80% of people who are injured in road construction accidents are motorists. At Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., our attorneys assist clients who were injured in accidents at roadway construction sites. We also file wrongful death claims for clients whose loved ones died in this type of motor vehicle accident.

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 road construction accident attorneys in Kansas City 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.

The Resources to Build a Strong Case

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 come to us with questions about the calculations behind a wrongful death claim. Our car accident attorneys will learn about your case, discuss your options with you, and help you navigate the legal process ahead.
