- Phoenix Roadway Construction Zones Collisions
Construction zone motor vehicle collisions are amongst some of the most dangerous types of auto accidents in the state of Arizona. Often causing broken bones, fractures, spinal cord and brain injuries, and a number of other catastrophic damage, Phoenix motorists must exercise substantial caution when traveling in these hazardous areas.
While signage is normally present at the beginning of the construction site, the majority of traffic collisions occur in this region. Due to the limited warning, when motorists first enter roadway construction zones, they must quickly adjust driving habits to adhere to the road conditions. Unfortunately, many Arizona drivers do not recognize these changes in road conditions number of collisions in the state.
Negligent drivers and negligent construction workers create a recipe for disaster. Some of the most common construction zone hazards that motorists must be aware of include but are not limited to:
- Uneven roads and highways
- Unpaved roads
- Temporary road signs that drivers are unfamiliar with
- Heavy equipment
- Construction vehicles
- Speeding in work zones
- Distracted driving within the work zone limits
- Sharp detours
- Sudden lane changes/lane merges
While no one can predict an impending accident, being aware of the potential risks associated with driving in a construction zone with place motorists in the best position to avoid hazards. If an accident does occur and the motorist was not at fault, then the construction company responsible for the site may be held liable.
Generally speaking, contractors, employers, and/or landowners are liable for the damages that are caused by insufficient road work signs, uneven roads, etc. If these construction employers or employees are not in compliance with the Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OHSA), they may be accountable for the costs of injuries and damages that follow./p>

Causes of Construction Zone Accidents
In the state of Arizona, construction zones present a number of additional laws that Phoenix motorists must abide by. For instance, under Arizona law, all speeding fines are doubled in construction zones where workers are present. Typically, these laws are enforced throughout the length of construction time, 24 hours a day. Rear-end collisions are the most frequently reported accidents in construction zones, as motorists are often caught off guard by new signs and slowed speeds, causing them to hit the vehicle in front of them.

Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way.

This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
