Maryland workers' compensation for those injured while on the job

Most Maryland business owners understand the importance of implementing and following safety procedures and protocols. Employee safety and the ability to feel safe and valued at work is important in keeping morale and productivity up. Some employers however, refuse to heed the laws and regulations set forth with regard to employee and workplace safety, which can lead to on the job accidents. When a worker is injured on the job, the workers' compensation program is available to help.

A man in another state was recently taken by ambulance to a local hospital for injuries suffered while working. The 39-year-old was then flown to another hospital shortly after his arrival at the first. Officials cannot comment on the extent of injuries or exactly what happened except to say he suffered serious head lacerations, as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is opening an investigation.

The company that employs the worker has had other accidents occur at the facility within the last seven years. Two fires and a spill that dumped oil into a local river were among the incidents. The company has had to pay over $21,000 in fines.

When Maryland employees are injured on the job, it is vital that they receive the full amount of workers' compensation that is available to them under state law. An attorney who is well-versed in workplace injuries and workers' compensation can help injured employees file claims and pursue recovery of all available benefits from insurance companies and their employer. Should a claim be denied, the attorney can help file an appeal on the worker's behalf.
