Roadside Worker Pedestrian Motor Vehicle Incident Claims (2009 – 2018)
Roadside work is a dangerous job. Last year, two roadside workers died as a result of being hit by a motor vehicle and 29 were injured. Between 2009 and 2018 there were a total of 13 roadside worker deaths and 213 injuries as a result of being hit by a motor vehicle.
