Construction Zone Accidents in Cleveland
Call Us Today!
Construction zones don't just happen. Rather, they are the result of careful planning and management based on the “Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices” issued by state and federal highway administrations. The manual details requirements for marking the road, creating detours, and making other traffic changes that will allow road construction crews to do their work. Not following these rules creates dangerous road conditions that increase the probability of a serious accident—even conditions that cause catastrophic injury or death.

Construction Manager Negligence Can Lead to Serious Accidents
Road construction managers have a duty to their workers and the driving public to maintain safe conditions on construction sites. When they do not adhere to this responsibility, accident victims may have a legal remedy. You should not hesitate to speak with a construction zone accident lawyer in Cleveland, Ohio.
Drivers pass by road construction sites every day, relying on construction companies to be safe—and most are. But when a company puts profits before basic safety, we help hold it accountable to make sure that the resulting injuries don't happen again. Our clients want answers, and they want to make a difference. We help them do that.
Thorough Preparation: The Key to a Successful Outcome
Our Cleveland construction zone accident lawyers at Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP represent clients who were injured or whose loved ones died in a road construction accident. We prepare each case thoroughly in anticipation of a jury trial if that becomes necessary. We have found that being well-prepared encourages the other side to make a fair settlement offer; insurance company lawyers know that we are formidable opponents and seek to minimize their expense and exposure by settling. They seldom wish to face us in court.
