Even during construction, government entities must keep roads safe
Construction on the road is a necessary part of life, and drivers must exercise care when traveling through well-marked construction zones. Nevertheless, when roads are open to thru traffic, drivers have a right to expect that these roads are free from hidden hazards and safe for drivers to cross. When subcontractors or construction workers fail to maintain an essential level of safety on roads, or fail to provide warnings to drivers of hazards on the road ahead, these construction crews and the state or local government agencies responsible for them may be financially liable for resulting injuries.
That said, filing a claim against New York government agencies is a complex process, involving technical pleading requirements and strict filing deadlines. It is critical to work with an attorney to assist you in filing these claims. The Hudson Valley car accident attorneys at Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner, and Martuscello, LLP have provided countless clients with seasoned representation in claims against government entities and others.
