Scranton Construction Accidents Attorneys

Determined advocacy for injured parties on Luzerne and Lackawanna County roads

Road construction is a common daily occurrence on our roads and highways, and while most construction crews try to maintain safe conditions in work zones, road construction often poses a risk to the lives of both drivers and construction workers every day. It’s always a good idea to drive with caution through construction work zones, but should you or a road worker be injured in one of these areas, The Law Firm of Cognetti & Cimini has the experience and skill to help you seek compensation.

Dangers on Pennsylvania roads

Road construction accidents happen across the country at an alarming rate, and Pennsylvania is no exception, with  five such accidents per day, most involving crashes in road construction work zones. A large percentage of work zone crashes result in injuries or fatalities, most involving passenger cars or SUVs. Drivers need to pay special attention in these areas to changes in road course, to roadway obstacles and to workers who are present.

Construction accidents caused by negligence, unsafe work zones or construction defects result in complex cases, often requiring extensive research and outside experts. Injuries sustained in such accidents are also often catastrophic. Many, unfortunately, end tragically in wrongful death, leaving loved ones and families to grieve and suffer with medical bills and, in many cases, no source of income.  The Law Firm of Cognetti & Cimini understands the serious nature of road construction cases and handles yours with compassion and a strong commitment to seeking justice and just compensation.
