Lately, it seems as though almost every road we travel in South Florida is undergoing some type of construction work. While improving our roadways is both good and necessary, and road maintenance and construction are vital components to the ongoing growth of our State, these activities can also lead to the creation of road hazards, which may result in accidents and injuries to drivers, passersby and the construction workers themselves.
You should be aware that, in the majority of cases, independent contractors are hired by State authorities to perform the construction and maintenance work on our highways. While construction companies and contractors have an obligation to ensure public safety, they might not be totally familiar with all State safety laws regarding highway construction projects, such as the proper placement of the necessary road signs, unmarked road hazards, and scattered debris resulting from the construction process. Fortunately, these contractors are required to have liability insurance to protect the public in the event of an accident.
