If you're a highway construction worker who's hit by a car while on the job, what should you do? That's what we asked Maryland lawyer Gwen-Marie Davis Hicks for this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.
Gwen-Marie Davis Hicks:
Call us, because one, there could be a couple of things in ways to recover. If you're on the job, obviously workers’ compensation, but depending on who hit you, it could be third party liability as well. I actually have a case like that now, where a construction worker was injured on the job, but they were hit by another company that was working on the job’s truck, while they were a flagger, and something like that is huge because we're handling the bodily injury plan, and sometimes they can miss that big part and think, “Oh, this is a workers’ compensation case.” Well, yes, it is, you're on the job, but more importantly, you were hit by a negligent third party defendant that should essentially be responsible for the injuries, and in this case the permanent injuries that they caused.
