As the weather begins to warm up, New Jersey residents will see more construction of buildings and roads around town. This can also spell danger for those who are walking close to where workers are renovating offices, putting up new buildings or improving roads. The last thing you would expect as you are walking to work or getting your shopping done is to be injured by a nearby construction project, but unfortunately, this can happen.
People who head out on the roadways in New Jersey are taking a risk. The chance of being involved in a motor vehicle crash is great. There are some accidents that can't be prevented but there are others that are due to negligence or recklessness on the part of the drivers.
