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.

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.
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.
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.
The Statute of Limitations in Maryland Don't Let Time Run Out
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.
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.
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.
