How Can Construction Workers Protect Their Rights?
If you are found even 1% at fault in your accident, you can be barred from obtaining compensation under Maryland’s contributory negligence laws. So it’s crucial to have legal representation on your side. By hiring a construction attorney, you can address any pushback you get from employers or workers’ compensation on your claims.
We can also dive deep to uncover where the negligence lies (equipment manufacturers, subcontractors, property owners, vehicle drivers, etc.) and pursue those parties for damages.
