ACCIDENTS IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION AREAS: CRITICAL INFORMATION YOU NEED

Posted by Ben Sessions | Oct 24, 2015 | 0 Comments

If you have a case involving an accident in a road construction area in Georgia, you absolutely need to know whether the protocols regarding traffic safety, slow downs, speed reduction, and warning signs were followed in your case.

FIRST, OBTAIN THE PROTOCOLS FOR TRAFFIC SAFETY IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION AREAS

Use the Georgia Open Records Act to obtain the protocols from the Georgia Department of Transportation. This is a simple request with no magic language. There are protocols interstates, non-interstate roadways, lane closures, road painting, etc. Request the entirety of the road construction protocols and identify the type of road and type of project that is appropriate for your case.

REQUEST FROM THE GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION ALL INFORMATION REGARDING ACCIDENTS FOR THAT PARTICULAR ROAD CONSTRUCTION PROJECT

You must know and plan to strategically address the admissibility of other accidents involving the same road construction or improvement project. You must recognize that, in most cases, the admissibility of other accidents in this area will be a contested issue. Be sure to have the Dunagan on hand and be prepared to discuss it.
