Intentional head injury leaves Maryland man in long-term care

Employers and their employees, for the most part, get along. The relationship can get complicated when either the boss or the worker overstep the line that separates the two roles. When issues arise, usually the employee will find other employment to separate him or herself from the situation. Others may take matters too far, as a recent incident in Maryland has left one severely incapacitated after an intentional head injury.

Police received a call around 6:45 a.m. to respond to an assault at a local gas station. Upon arrival, authorities found a 52-year-old man suffering from blunt force trauma to the head. He was transported to a local hospital.

A 48-year-old male employee was with the injured man, who was also his boss when the attack occurred. They had traveled to the gas station, and the employer had gone into the convenience store. When he returned to the car, a 20-year-old male approached him and struck him on the head with a two-by-four. Upon investigation, authorities learned that the employee and the assailant had been in previous contact and had spoken on the phone just moments before the attack occurred.

Both suspects have been charged with attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder, along with assault. The employer suffered significant brain damage and is now currently in a long-term care facility. Police are continuing to investigate as the motive for the attack remains unclear.

Being injured or seriously wounded at the hands of another can leave lasting effects on the victim and his or her family. The financial implications of a severe head injury can leave one with medical bills and/or long-term care costs that can quickly spiral out of control. With the guidance of a experienced Maryland personal injury lawyer, a victim -- or the surviving family of a deceased victim -- can examine the evidence and possibly pursue legal recourse in the form of a civil lawsuit. Monies awarded from a successful claim could help to cover medical bills incurred and future care costs.
