Dealing with the inconvenience of year-round road construction has become a way of life in the Chicago area. This does not mean, however, that you should have to deal with hazardous road conditions in and around the construction zone. There are specific requirements in place regarding how a construction site should be set up.
When a failure to meet these requirements leads to accidents that injure motorcycle riders or other motorists, the victims have the right to seek full compensation from the negligent parties. If you or someone you care for has been injured in a construction zone, be sure that you seek the advice of a Chicago construction zone motorcycle accident lawyer who understands the law and will work to protect your interests.
Motorcycle riders who have been injured in road construction zones should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. The Chicago motorcycle accident lawyers at The Horwitz Law Group will take the time to provide a thorough review of your case and explain your legal options.
Construction zone motorcycle accidents can be caused by many different conditions. Insufficient warning signs, poorly placed or missing barriers, ambiguous temporary lane markings, equipment or debris blocking a traffic lane and other issues can all contribute to the cause of an accident.

These cases can be quite complex and often involve filing suit against government entities or their contractors. We understand the unique processes involved in dealing with the government.
