WJLA.com reported on June 1st a pickup truck was heading south on Old Georgetown Road when it crashed into another vehicle traveling east on Executive Boulevard in North Bethesda, Maryland.
The pickup truck then went into a construction zone at the corner of the intersection and hit a worker who was apart of a roadway project. The victim died at the scene from his injuries.
An investigation of the accident is still underway.
Construction accident lawyer, Aaron Blank, represents injured construction workers and the families of construction workers killed in construction accidents. Aaron shared some information on the legal options available to these workers and families:
When a construction worker is injured or killed on the job, there may be one or more legal options available to them. Most construction workers are able to receive workers’ compensation. Additionally, in some cases, injured construction workers may also have grounds for a lawsuit against a third party.
A negligent third party may be held responsible for a worker’s injuries if they contributed to the accident. For instance, a property owner could be held liable for ignoring a dangerous property condition prior to starting the construction project.
