Construction Accident Lawyer

If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, you may be faced with injuries, lost wages, and more.

You shouldn't have to bear the financial burden for your losses if you are not responsible for the construction accident.

Our construction accident lawyers at Greenblatt & Veliev, LLC in Rockville, MD, can help you receive full and fair compensation.

Understanding Contributory Negligence Laws in Maryland and the Importance of Hiring an Attorney

Maryland has contributory negligence laws, meaning that if you are found to be even 1% at fault for your construction site accident, you can be barred from obtaining compensation. Because of this, it’s crucial to have legal representation on your side. By hiring one of our construction accident attorneys in Rockville, MD, you can address any pushback you get from employers or workers’ compensation on your claims.

Hurt at Work? Let Us Fight for You

If you want full compensation for your construction accident injuries, you need a firm that does it all. While some of our attorneys handle personal injury claims like car accidents, we also have attorneys who focus on workers' compensation, so we can always provide you with the counsel you need for your case.

Report Your Injury

Report your injury to your supervisor within 10 days, but do not speak to any of your employer’s insurance representatives. Anything you say to them could be used to deny your injury claim.

File a Workers' Comp Claim

Filing for workers' compensation benefits is typically done before hiring a lawyer, but this is a complicated area of the law and our attorneys can help you navigate it. The injured party is required to file Employee Claim Form C-1 and a physician's report, if available. 

Consult a Lawyer

The construction accident attorneys at Greenblatt & Veliev, LLC in Rockville, MD, can help you prove that your injuries were the result of someone else's negligence, build your construction accident case, navigate the intricacies of the law, and spearhead your case in court if necessary. Our attorneys will help you explore all avenues of compensation for your claim.

Construction Accidents Are Commonly Due to OSHA Violations

For the fiscal year 2021, OSHA outlined the top 10 most frequently cited standards that were violated.  OSHA has determined that most accidents fall under four main categories, which OSHA has deemed the "Fatal Four":

  • On-the-job falls
  • Electrocution accidents
  • Getting crushed by machinery
  • Being struck by an object

OSHA puts standards in place to keep workers safe, but when workplaces fall short and result in a hazardous environment, the workers are often the ones who suffer. Though you don't need to prove fault for a workers' compensation claim, proving that an OSHA violation resulted in a construction accident can help you in the case of a personal injury lawsuit.

We help injured workers recover compensation for these common construction accidents, but we are not limited to these four categories. We help workers like you recover compensation for car accidents, explosions, lead exposure, defective machinery, and more.
