Frequently Asked Questions

Maryland Construction Accident Lawyer

Experienced Washington DC and Maryland Construction Accident Lawyer – Attorney Walter E. Laake, Jr.


Thousands of construction site accidents occur each year across the country.  OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, estimates that 1000 construction workers will die as a result of a construction site accident each year.  Most of these accidents are preventable, so if you have been injured in an accident, or a loved one has been injured or killed as the result of a construction site accident, contact a Maryland construction accident lawyer to investigate the case.

OSHA has strict guidelines that outline the safety measures that need to be followed on construction sites, for employers to make sure that their employees are safe and protected.  Sometimes these measures are not followed, sub-standard equipment is used, and personal negligence on the part of contractors and other workers, results in construction site accidents. 

Of the 1000 deaths estimated to occur this year, one third of them will be because of falls.  Falls from roofs, cranes, scaffolding and elevator shafts are the most common type of construction site falls, but workers can also fall through holes in flooring, and be injured by falling objects, such as beams that slip from a crane's jaws, or a crane itself that topples.  Most fall accidents could be prevented with proper safety equipment. 

Welding accidents and other accidents that can result in electrocution can typically be prevented with good equipment, proper labeling and safety training of employees.  Accidents with heavy equipment that result in injury or death, faulty equipment, improperly assembled scaffolding, explosions, and trench collapses are just a few of the possible accidents that result in injury or death at construction sites.
