Road construction occurs across the nation and can make it dangerous for drivers and pedestrians to navigate safely. An accident is more likely to happen if the construction company violates the safety rules. Some of these accidents involve multiple vehicles, construction equipment and pedestrians when vehicles and pedestrians are not safely directed through the construction zone by the construction company.
