Fighting For Workers’ Compensation Rights In Maryland
In Maryland, you may qualify for workers’ compensation if you were harmed through “an accidental personal injury arising out of and in the course of employment,” or suffer from an occupational disease caused by your work activities such as through exposure to toxic chemicals on the job. These criteria have been defined by the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission. Information issued by the commission clarifies that it is not enough to be injured on the job or at the workplace; rather, the precise criteria above must be verified.
Coverage is for injured employees – not independent contractors. Sole proprietors may also be covered if they have elected to be covered and obtained the necessary workers’ compensation insurance before an injury occurs. To determine whether you meet the criteria for workers’ compensation and learn how to obtain all benefits that are due to you after a covered workplace injury, contact Angelos Legal Group in Lutherville-Timonium today.
