Survivors benefits through Maryland workers' compensation

Employer's and their workers understand the importance of safety on the job site. Many laws are in place to protect not only the employees but the companies and employers they work for. Should an on-the-job injury or fatality occur, the Maryland workers' compensation insurance program is in place to help families and injured employees bridge the financial gap that not being able to work due to a work-related injury can cause.

An employee of a trucking company recently lost his life while working on the job. According to reports, the man was crushed by a piece of equipment that fell on him. The equipment in question is used to move the trailers around the lot that the employer owns.

First responders received the call for help around 1:30 a.m. The man was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The identity of the man has not been released, and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration continues to investigation.

The Maryland workers' compensation insurance program exists to help employees who are injured while on the job. With a successful claim, victims are able to receive financial compensation while they are unable to work due to a job-related injury. The program also provides death benefits for dependent spouses and minor children should the work injury result in death. A Maryland attorney can help employees file a workers' compensation claim and an appeal, should one be necessary. An attorney can also assist grieving families in obtaining the survivors benefits that are available.
