      Serving Workers from Offices in Lexington Park, Bowie, Waldorf, & Frederick

      Construction is one of the most dangerous industries for workers in Maryland and across the country. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 20% of worker fatalities in the U.S. in 2017 occurred in construction. Falls were the most common cause of these fatalities. Workers also suffered fatal injuries from being trapped or compressed in machinery and from accidents in which they were struck by an object or vehicle, including backhoes, forklifts, and other heavy machinery used on construction sites. Electrocution was another leading cause of construction worker fatalities.

      Construction worker injuries can be caused by falls, defective equipment, heavy machinery accidents, slip and fall accidents, electrocution, exposure to toxic chemicals, and other hazards that may be typical of a construction site. Some construction accidents are caused by negligence due to oversight of rules and regulations in order to finish a project quicker or garner a higher profit.

      When workers are injured, the Maryland construction accident attorneys at Alpert Schreyer, LLC stand prepared to seek fair compensation on their behalf. We utilize our skill and resources to help injured workers and the families of construction workers who have lost their lives in construction site accidents, pursuing the fair, complete compensation that is needed to build more stable futures.

      To find out how we can help you, call 301-381-2655 or contact us online. We have offices conveniently located in Lexington Park, Prince Frederick, Waldorf, Bowie, and Frederick to better serve you.

      Construction Site Injuries

      Construction sites have accounted for more on-the-job injuries to Maryland workers than any other single job site, according to the Maryland Division of Labor and Industry Regulation and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Both fatal and non-fatal injuries are more common at construction sites than in any other workplace, although manufacturing-related injuries are a close second.

      A construction accident can cause various injuries, such as:

      When proper standards and regulations are not adhered to and a construction worker suffers a serious injury, the negligent party can be held legally responsible for the injury and all subsequent expenses. Depending on the extent of the injury, re-constructive surgery, physical therapy, and rehabilitation may be required in order for the injured party to heal and live as close to a normal life as possible. In the event that the injured individual cannot return to his or her line of work, vocational job training may be necessary. In addition, the negligent party can also be held liable for other damages including, but not limited to: various medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and decreased quality of life.

      Contacting an experienced Maryland injury lawyer after a construction accident can help you understand your rights and exactly what types of compensation you’re entitled to. You do not have to face this journey by yourself.

      Construction Site Safety Regulations

      OSHA and the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health Act (MOSH Act) both set out specific rules for various workplaces and types of work. These rules require protective gear, safety guards on equipment, warning labels, and a wide range of other precautions intended to help protect construction workers and others from serious injuries while on the job. Employees who inform OSHA of a possible violation are protected by federal law, and employers found to be violating OSHA standards may face fines or other penalties.

      OSHA does not directly represent injured workers, however. Instead, injured workers in Maryland may seek compensation from workers’ compensation insurance, which most Maryland employers are required to carry. Workers’ compensation pays for medical bills, partial lost wages, vocational rehabilitation, and other needs an employee might have after being injured on the job in Maryland.

      How Can Construction Workers Protect Their Rights?

      The first step any worker should take after a construction injury is to seek medical attention, especially if the injury is severe. Then, file a workers’ compensation claim with your employer as soon as possible. An experienced construction site injury attorney can help you handle the paperwork and negotiate with your employer or their workers’ compensation insurer if a dispute arises, so you get the compensation you need after an accident. We can also consider the possibility of a personal injury lawsuit against a third party, if someone other than your employer was responsible for your injuries.

We have handled a wide variety of injury cases related to the construction industry across Maryland and know the laws surrounding such cases. With the skill and necessary resources to properly examine your case, our legal staff can help you hold those responsible for your injury accountable for their negligence so that you and your family can move forward.

      If you’ve been putting off reaching out to an attorney for your work-related injury or construction site injury case because you’re afraid that you can’t afford an attorney, we’ve got good news for you. Alpert Schreyer, LLC operates on what’s called a contingency fee. This means there are no upfront costs to you. We don’t recover any attorney’s fee unless we’re able to win your case.

      When you’re going about choosing a construction site or work injury lawyer, there’s several factors that you should consider. The first thing we tell people is Google the lawyer. See whether they have happy prior clients. Read the reviews.

      Another thing you should do is talk to that lawyer. See if they’ve handled construction site cases before. What is their experience level? It’s extremely important that you hire an experienced construction site attorney who can assist you in this complex legal process.

      Talking to the insurance company without an attorney is the first one that many people make. So it’s extremely important before you talk to the insurance company to give us a call. Alpert Schreyer, LLC will offer you a free legal consultation. We can assist you in giving a statement to the insurance company if we do think that that’s appropriate under the circumstances.

      The answer to that question is usually yes. You don’t want to just not show up for work the next day. It’s important to let them know that you were involved in a work-related injury. But, before you start making recorded statements to the insurance company, it’s extremely important to reach out to a personal injury attorney. Alpert Schreyer, LLC can assist you in handling that type of case. We can help you in avoiding any potential pitfalls that come with these types of claims.

      This is going to depend on several factors. Where the accident happened and the type of claim it is. Is it a worker’s compensation case or is it just a personal injury case? You need to reach out to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. That way you don’t have to worry about filing a case in time. It’s extremely important to reach out to Alpert Schreyer, LLC. We’ll offer you a free legal consultation and then we can discuss the timeline of events in your case.

      Under Maryland workers’ compensation law, the answer unfortunately is often no. But that does not mean that you don’t have a claim in your case. Give us a call. We’ll offer you a free legal consultation.

      We can discuss whether or not you can sue your employer, whether or not there is third party liability, and whether or not you have a personal injury case. We’ll also help you in filing a Maryland workers’ compensation claim.

      This is an extremely complex question that is often extremely difficult to answer at the onset of the case. This depends on several factors.

      • How long are you going to be treating?
      • What are your injuries?
      • And ultimately, is the insurance company going to come to the table and offer a fair and reasonable settlement for your claim?

      That’s why it’s extremely important before you deal with the insurance company to give Alpert Schreyer, LLC a call. We offer free legal consultations and we can assist you in guiding through this extremely complex legal system.

      This is an extremely complex question, and it’s often impossible to answer at the onset. It relies on a number of factors, including:

      • What are the nature and extent of your injuries?
      • Is this a sprain that’s going to resolve itself in the next two to three months?
      • Or is this a permanent catastrophic injury?

      It’s important before you start negotiating with the insurance company in letting them decide what the value of your claim is, to give us a call. We offer free legal consultations, and once we go through the process a little bit, we could start talking about valuation.
