Workplace injuries are a fact of modern life and many workers get injured on the job every day in Maryland. But most workers, even those in high-risk fields, do not spend a lot of their free time preparing personal game-plans for what to do if they get hurt on the job. This mentality is easy to understand, but it can be detrimental.
If you suffer a work-related injury, knowing what to do and, more importantly, what not to do can have a big impact on your ability to get compensation.
Maryland’s workers’ compensation is a complex legal scheme designed to help employees who have been injured on the job. But that is easier said than done. Navigating the process can be like walking through a minefield for many victims. Too many workers’ compensation victims make mistakes that can negatively impact their claims.
