On the afternoon of May 22nd, a driver struck a vehicle before careening through a construction zone barrier and into a work crew on I-695 near Baltimore. The six workers killed were identified as Mahlon Simmons II, Mahlon Simmons III, Rolando Ruiz, Carlos Orlando Villatoro Escobar, Jose Armando Escobar, and Sybil Lee Dimaggio.

Mittman, whose firm represents construction workers injured on the job, emphasized the importance of thorough accident investigations and accountability. "The families deserve answers and justice. We have an obligation to learn from preventable tragedies like this to enact meaningful change that better values worker safety."

He urges improved safety protocols, enhanced training, better traffic control and worksite protection for those whose labor is vital to maintaining the nation's transportation arteries. "Everyone should get home safely at the end of their shift. That must be the paramount priority on every single construction project from this point forward."

The firm is monitoring developments in the case closely and stands ready to assist any of the victims' families seeking legal counsel during this unimaginably difficult time.

"Construction accidents are a stark reminder of the inherent risks faced by workers in this industry," Mittman stated. "We must not only react to tragedies like this but proactively implement measures to prevent them. It's imperative that safety remains at the forefront of every construction project."

"Investing in comprehensive safety training and ensuring strict adherence to safety protocols are fundamental steps toward mitigating the risks associated with construction work," Mittman continued. "By prioritizing worker safety, we not only protect the lives of those on the job but also contribute to the overall well-being of our communities."
