In short, we handle the legal issues related to the accident so that you can focus on your recovery.

We conduct thorough investigations and work to maximize your compensation after a work zone accident.

Whether road construction involves bridge work or resurfacing work along Route 93 or any other road work, road construction zones are dangerous and are the scene of countless car accidents in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Our attorneys and legal team investigate these accidents to determine all potential causes and contributing factors such as:

  • Fatigued truckers who fail to recognize a road construction zone is approaching and cause a multiple vehicle truck accident
  • Drunk drivers who cross into oncoming traffic and cause a head-on collision
  • Reckless drivers who speed or cut other drivers off and cause work zone traffic accidents
  • Careless drivers whose negligence results in accidents and flee the accident scene to avoid tickets for their negligence (or to avoid being cited for driving without insurance)

Work zone accidents can result in serious and fatal injuries.

Work zone accidents can be particularly dangerous for motorcyclists as well as occupants of passenger vehicles. Vehicles that are rear-ended may be forced into oncoming traffic, construction vehicles or cement girders, causing severe impact. Our lawyers offer sincere compassion and empathy to our clients as we guide them through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Our experience and determination has driven our ability to achieve results for clients dealing with the realities of a serious car wreck.
