According to WJLA-TV, the crash occurred on Maryland Route 450, at High Bridge Road. The mail carrier, who was a 20-to-30-year USPS employee, was allegedly thrown from his vehicle as it flipped over. The crash was a single-vehicle incident.

The man reportedly suffered life-threatening injuries in the accident, which remains under investigation.

Talking to an Attorney about a Workplace Accident

Unfortunately, transportation accidents are the leading cause of death among American workers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), transportation accidents are responsible for almost 40 percent of all employee deaths nationwide.

When an employee is killed on the job, contacting an attorney is incredibly important if you are a family member. The sooner you speak to a lawyer, the faster he or she can investigate an incident. This is important when you need to preserve evidence for a wrongful death, workers’ compensation or third-party claim.

When your loved one is killed on-the-job, you may have rights to pursue damages, which can be helpful in helping you recover financially. If you have been affected by a workplace accident, you can use the live chat option at the top of this page to speak to someone about your legal options.
