Were You Hit In A Road Construction Work Zone?

Highway work zones are often the scene of devastating accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a road construction accident, our legal team offers a free initial consultation to help you understand your legal options.

Since 1993, the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke has helped accident victims in Connecticut recover the full compensation they are due if they are injured due the negligence of another party. Our lawyers also represent families in cases of wrongful death. With offices in Stratford, Shelton , we represent drivers, passengers and highway workers throughout the Greater Bridgeport area.

Let Us Help You Hold Negligent Parties Accountable

Our Bridgeport road construction accident attorneys care about one thing: obtaining full compensation for the injured from those who are responsible for those injuries.

Some of the most common reasons for road construction accidents include:

  • Excessive speed
  • Distracted driving
  • Improper signage and warnings
  • Construction debris in the roadway
  • Lack of safety barriers for workers

Determining fault in these accidents may require painstaking accident reconstruction. It may also require experts who can determine if signs, barrels and other warnings were properly placed at the work zone. Our lawyers will gather the evidence we need to build the strongest possible case against the at-fault parties.

Representing Injured Construction Workers

Road construction workers who are injured on the job have a right to workers' compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault. However, workers' compensation benefits are limited and offer no compensation for your pain and suffering, which is often the largest part of personal injury case.

If you are injured by a negligent driver in a work zone accident, our lawyers will seek full compensation from the driver and his or her insurance company.
