Highway work zone accidents affect both morists and workers alike. There have been over 1,000 deaths in work zones in the last year. These work zones have hazards other than the obvious motor vehicle crash possibilities. The zones have heavy machinery that could fall, could be improperly zoned, or if any of the machinery malfunctions. If an accident occurs in a work zone be caused by another motorist the fault will fall to the other motorist. However, if additional damage is caused because of an improper work zone additional fault might be applied.
