Officials urge drivers to exercise caution in Ohio construction zones

Spring and summer are seasons of increased road construction in Ohio. In fact, the Ohio Department of Transportation has announced that a "record number of construction projects" are planned or underway throughout the state, and drivers are urged to exercise due caution in work zones.

Sadly, that warning comes after a fatal construction zone accident outside of Dayton. The crash involved a dump truck and a semi truck, and a 43-year-old construction worker lost his life.

Investigators with the Ohio State Highway Patrol believe the accident occurred as a dump truck driver attempted to merge onto Interstate 70 and came into contact with a semi truck. The truck driver lost control of the vehicle, which hit the construction worker.

Drivers of large and small vehicles have a responsibility to exercise due caution in work zones, and employers of construction workers must ensure that they are properly trained and that appropriate signage is in place. Failure on the part of any one of these parties could have life-altering consequences.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured on a construction site, then don't hesitate to explain your case to a workers' compensation attorney. In some cases, a third party may be liable for a work-related injury or death, and a workers' comp lawyer can assess your case and explain your options for receiving compensation. A construction zone accident caused by a negligent driver would most likely fall into this third-party category.
