Have roadworks resulted in your claim for unexpected injury compensation in Thanet?
Although it is sometimes necessary for roadworks to be carried out, it can be extremely inconvenient for road users and people living nearby. If, for example, the road surface has been damaged in some way, construction workers may need to carry out repairs. Although this can improve road safety in the long term, it may make things more dangerous while the work is being carried out.
In order to carry out roadworks, construction workers often need to install temporary traffic signals. Unfortunately, this can mean that traffic builds up and drivers can become frustrated. This may mean that some drivers take more risks than usual, or that they drive at fast speeds once the traffic is moving.
If the roadworks are extensive, you may even find that roads are completely closed and diversions are put in place. In addition to adding time to your journey, this can put a significant strain on other roads and traffic systems. This increase in traffic alone could be enough to cause additional collisions and road traffic accidents.
While most construction jobs are carried out safely, it is vital the roadworks and repairs are done safely to ensure that drivers and passengers are safe while using the roads. If the work is carried out incorrectly, accidents may occur as a result, and people could suffer from serious injuries.
