Based upon recent studies, Florida's roadways and bridges appear to be deteriorating at a rather rapid pace. That fact is supported by the overwhelming amount of highway construction and maintenance work zones that we navigate during our commute to work, school and leisure activities. As regular vehicle traffic increases in Florida, the combination of increased vehicle traffic and highway work zones, so does the number of motor vehicle accidents that occur within a designated work zone. Our Tampa Car Injury Attorneys have litigated car, motorcycle and truck accidents that have occurred within a work zone.
Litigating accident cases that occur within a designated work zone can be somewhat more complex for a variety of reasons. Because highway maintenance work zones are temporary in nature, even though they can last for several years, it is extremely important for the attorney to determine if the Temporary Traffic Control "TTC" was conducted properly and in accordance with the plans, standards and within good engineering judgment.
We have identified some of the more common conditions that can occur within a designated work zone:
- Narrow travel lanes
- Improper guardrail placement
- Unforeseen road damage
- Pavement edge drop-offs
- Improper flagging operations
- Varying vehicle speeds
- Equipment stored/working too close to the roadway
