Since Georgia is a relative negligence state, accident victims are able to recover partial damages for their injuries. Moreover, this can be the true even if the individual bears some responsibility for the incident, and that’s often the case in road construction accidents. For example, even though an individual may be partially at fault, external factors such as poor road conditions may also carry some of the blame for an accident and therefore impact how damages are awarded.
There are a variety of construction-related factors that can contribute to dangerous accidents where drivers, passengers and construction workers could be severely injured. Some examples include:
- Uneven or broken pavement
- Careless operation construction machinery
- Careless placement of construction machinery
- Unmarked bumps in the road
- Improperly marked lanes
- Missing guard rails
- A lack of warning signs in construction zones
