Construction zones on the busy Colorado roads could be deadly for employees of road construction companies. Despite the dangers posed by the machinery and other hazardous materials they work with, their safety is also compromised by inattentive or negligent drivers who move through the work zones. Being injured at work can not only bring about unanticipated medical expenses but also a loss of income.
A worker was recently hospitalized after he was struck by a cement truck in a construction zone in Denver. Reportedly the man was knocked down while he was performing the duties of a flagger outside the road construction zone. Neither the severity of the injuries he suffered nor his condition was reported.
