California is one of the most populous states in the country, boasting an annual growth rate of .61%. By 2050, it’s projected that California’s population density will easily surpass 50 million residents. Civil engineers and urban planners are constantly developing new roads, housing tracks, and commercial buildings just to accommodate our state’s rapid growth rate. For this reason, it’s not unusual to see streets and highways undergoing intense construction throughout the Inland Empire.
While the purpose of highway construction is to maintain and develop roads in the interest of public safety, construction sites are habitually loud, busy, and dangerous for employees and passersby alike. In fact, the mere presence of concentrated traffic, rubberneckers, unfamiliar detours, and heavy machinery often results in catastrophic accidents and injuries that necessitate hospitalization and ongoing care services.
Highway work zones have injured over 200,000 Americans in the last 5 years. Many of these survivors sustained life-altering injuries that accrued devastating medical debts and other injury-related expenses.

Pursue Compensatory Damages with Our Legal Team
A highway construction zone can be extremely dangerous for the average motorist. Oftentimes, a driver has only a short window of opportunity to decipher complex signs, cones, and lane detours while also keeping an eye out for pedestrians and workers. Unfortunately, it’s not unusual for companies to cut safety corners in the name of profit and production. A motorist can dutifully observe every safety protocol and still be injured by a negligent employee or a distracted driver. This is particularly true when work is being completed at night or in harsh weather.
A construction zone accident can lead to the following injuries and more:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Nerve damage
- Broken bones
- Neck injuries
- Burn injuries
It can be difficult to pinpoint a negligent party after a serious construction zone accident. In fact, depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident, you may be able to file claims against multiple parties, including: a negligent motorist, a subcontractor, a construction company, and/or a government entity.
At McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP, we can help you navigate the complex liability issues and regulations commonly associated with construction zone accidents. By investigating your case and calculating your injury-related expenses, we can develop an aggressive case strategy that holds the at-fault parties responsible for your injuries and correlating financial losses. If the defendant’s insurance company refuses to negotiate, we can litigate on your behalf in court to prove that your injuries warrant a full monetary recovery.
You may be able to secure the following compensatory damages:
- Existing and projected medical expenses
- Rehabilitation costs
- Ongoing professional care fees
- Lost income
- Loss of earning potential
