Road Work Accident Attorney, Oakland, CA

Bay Area Attorney Helping Victims of Road Work Accidents

We’ve all seen the signs: “Road Work Ahead.” These signs are meant to alert drivers to slow down because there are workers on the roadway, or very close to traffic. Road work construction is one of the most dangerous jobs because it places workers in a very vulnerable spot: just feet away from speeding cars and trucks.

Due to this limited space, road work accidents happen every year — and they often result in serious injuries, and sometimes death. Recent statistics help illustrate just how dangerous road work can be:

  • 5.4 – the number of minutes passed since the last work zone crash
  • 70 – the number of work zone crashes each day that result in at least one injury
  • 12 – the number of fatal work zone crashes every week

Not all road work injuries are the result of car accidents, however. Workers are also operating large pieces of equipment, and face a variety of environmental risks. Some of the most common job-related accidents in road work zones include:

  • Electrocution
  • Defective Machinery Injuries
  • Heavy Equipment Injuries
  • Crane Accidents
  • Falls
  • Burns (from hot tar and chemicals)

I am very thankful and appreciative for the wonderful job that The Barnes Firm has done for me with my auto accident. I think I was lucky to have Landon and Ali worked on my case. They were always available for me.

I was in a car accident and contacted, The Barnes Firm. I was transferred to an attorney right away. The attorney was very pleasant and helpful. He answered all my questions. He set up an appointment that same week. The attorney himself, came over to my home. He went over the paperwork and explained the procedure very thoroughly. The attorney’s paralegal contacted me right away. The office has been in touch with me and genuinely concerned about my injuries. This firm was on top of my case. I highly recommend them. Please call The Barnes Firm.

My attorney and his Assistant helped me through my injury case. It was a real pleasure having their legal advice available to me in a time when I couldn’t think straight or even figure out what to do after my accident injury.
