When is a private contractor responsible for damages and when is the Department of Transportation to be held accountable?


In many cases and many regions, local and state departments of transportation are clear that primary liability for the mishandling of road construction sites that results in damages to local drivers rests with the private contractor hired to carry out the job. They will likely direct you to file a claim with that contractor first that will set into motion a review process in which your case will be heard and the contractors’ site maintenance and procedure records will be considered. If you feel that inadequate or improper consideration has been made for your case, your next step should be to acquire proper legal representatives at Dover who can ably direct you in how to proceed.
