Road work and motorcycle accidents

Motorcycle collisions happen in many ways, and there are certain hazards that motorcyclists should be especially conscious of during the summer months. In many parts of the country, a lot of road work occurs during the summertime, and this can be helpful when it comes to reducing the likelihood of a motorcycle crash (eliminating potholes, etc.). Unfortunately, road work can also lead to a motorcycle collision in various ways and motorcyclists should exercise caution when approaching and riding through a road construction zone.

Some motorcyclists have been involved in accidents in work zones as a result of their own negligence, such as trying to speed through a work zone or pass vehicles by maneuvering through traffic. However, even when a motorcyclist is very responsible and cautious, they may be involved in an accident in this environment. For example, a construction crew member who is operating a truck may not see a motorcyclist and collide with them. Or, a motorcyclist may be struck by debris or by another vehicle that is driving too fast through a work zone.

Sometimes, drivers become agitated in work zones, which can lead to aggressive driving and increase the chances of a motorcycle crash. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident which occurred in a work zone, be sure to review your legal rights. Sometimes, filing a lawsuit is the appropriate course of action in the wake of such a collision, and this can open up financial resources that help motorcycle crash victims recover from the wreck.
