Construction zone worker injured at work when struck by truck

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.

Road construction workers nationwide, including in Colorado, put their lives on the line almost daily. Not only is their safety often compromised by negligent drivers who pass through construction zones but also by the dangerous equipment and construction vehicles on the work sites. In a tragic incident at a road construction zone in another state, two people were fatally injured at work.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has prescribed regulations that must be complied with to prevent workplace injuries.
