Who’s Liable for Road Construction Accidents?

Determining liability in road construction accidents can be very complex and may involve multiple parties, including:

  • The municipality responsible for maintaining the road
  • The road construction company
  • Another driver
  • The manufacturer of equipment or supplies (such as defective guard rails)

In the aftermath of an accident, it’s important not to discuss issues such as fault before you contact an attorney. A statement such as “I might have been driving a few miles over the limit” could result in the responsible insurance company blaming the accident on you.

In Connecticut, your recovery from a personal injury lawsuit can be reduced by any percentage of liability the court assigns to you. If you are found to be more than 50 percent responsible, you cannot recover damages.
