The most common reasons for worker injuries on construction sites are:
Whether your injury occurred in one of these ways or in another type of accident, I will help you through all the steps of the claims filing process.
Employers in Maryland are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to pay a portion of lost wages and the medical bills of injured workers. When you are injured at work, you are generally entitled to receive workers’ comp. There are some exceptions, such as when a worker’s own dangerous behavior caused their injuries. However, the filing process is complex and insurers and employers may try to deny claims if they are not filed correctly. I will help you with the initial filing process and fight for you throughout the appeals steps if your claim is denied.
If you were injured in an accident at a construction site, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim outside of the workers’ comp insurance system. While you cannot sue your employer for your workplace injuries, if a third party caused the accident that injured you, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against them. Third parties at construction sites could be a subcontractor working at the site, someone visiting the site to bring supplies or even a product manufacturer whose tool or machinery malfunctions and causes injury. You may even be able to bring a third-party claim while also collecting workers’ comp insurance. Once I learn the details of your injury accident, I can advise you about your options. If you are eligible to bring a personal injury claim, I will file the suit for you and stand by your side throughout litigation.
