Officer in Maryland crash may deserve workers' compensation

Police officers fasten their badge on before each shift knowing that it could be the last time they report for duty. They are well aware that they may face serious injury or death in the line of duty. Most police officers, however, likely expect that such an event will occur at the hands of a criminal or during a rescue attempt. They likely don't expect that an injury will come as a result of a preventable traffic accident. One officer in Maryland is likely eligible for workers' compensation after he was seriously injured in such an accident.

Death of Maryland worker could lead to workers' compensation

Anyone who has driven on a state highway or interstate has likely noticed a state worker performing a job-related task near the road. In most circumstances, they complete their task without incident. However, in the event of an accident, the state of Maryland likely provides workers' compensation coverage for their employees. The family members of one employee may now qualify for such compensation after the death of their loved one in a tragic accident.

It is no secret that police officers have a dangerous job. Every day they report for duty, they realize it could very well be their last. There are obvious job hazards such as dangerous criminals, but there are others of which some people may not be as aware. Police officers are frequently in danger of being struck by a fast-moving vehicle when they pull over a different vehicle or are working the scene of an accident. Fortunately in the case of workplace injuries in Maryland, injured employees are often entitled to workers' compensation.

There are many good drivers on the road. Often, even the most experienced and careful drivers are completely unable to avoid car accidents when, for example, one car unexpectedly swerves into the lane of another. According to police reports, an accident similar to this in Maryland resulted in one man's death and the serious injury of three others.
