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, clients in Frederick and the rest of the state can address any pushback they get from employers or workers’ compensation on their claims.

Were You 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.

Contact our Rockville, MD, personal injury law firm to request a free case evaluation. We serve people throughout Prince George's County, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and beyond, so even if you're not in Rockville or nearby Frederick, we invite you to reach out.

Next Steps to Take if You’ve Been Injured in a Construction Accident

Our goal is to help victims of negligence obtain the fair compensation they deserve. Our attorneys are prepared to fight for you in the pursuit of justice.

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.

A Negligent Contractor Can Be Sued In a Personal Injury Case

Not all construction site accidents result in compensation claims designed to obtain workers' compensation benefits. In some cases, a negligent contractor's irresponsible behavior can make them liable as a third party in a personal injury lawsuit

Our construction accident lawyers have decades of collective time handling both workers' comp and personal injury cases, so we can determine if you have standing for a personal injury lawsuit. 

An example of a contractor behaving negligently and causing a construction accident would be if they failed to post signage in a dangerous area, leading you to slip and fall. 

We Can Also Sue Product Manufacturers

Not all construction accidents are caused by a person at the site's negligence. Some can be set in motion months or years prior by product manufacturers who fail to perform their due diligence in the design, marketing, or manufacturing of construction machinery. 

For example, if you were made to work with power tools, saws, or protective gear that were defective and led to your injury, we can widen the scope of your case beyond a workers' compensation claim and sue the product manufacturer. The same theory could apply if you suffered a car accident at a construction site due to a malfunctioning vehicle.

It can be difficult to know exactly who to sue for your construction accident. Our Rockville, MD, firm is here to make this determination for you before seeking maximum compensation. 

Wrongful Death as the Result of a Personal Injury

If a workplace injury has resulted in the wrongful death of your loved one, our personal injury attorneys may be able to secure financial compensation for your family to help you through this trying time. You may also be eligible for workers' compensation death benefits.

Workers' Compensation

Workers who have been injured on the job have 60 days from the date of their injury to file for workers' compensation. After two years, the injured party will be barred from recovering compensation for the injury forever.

Personal Injury

A person who has sustained a personal injury due to a construction site accident has three years from the date of the accident to file their claim.

Wrongful Death

If you are the spouse, parent, or child of a person who has succumbed to injuries sustained in a construction accident, you have three years after the death of your loved one to file a wrongful death claim.
