Workers’ comp is a no-fault insurance carried by a majority of Maryland employers. When an employee is injured, workers’ comp will provide coverage for medical expenses, a portion of lost wages, and travel costs until the employee is able to return to work. Workers’ compensation can be sought even when no clearly liable party is identifiable.
Personal injury lawsuits can be filed when there is a clearly liable party, but are uncommon following workplace accidents. However, when an accident occurs on a construction site or in cases where workers’ comp would be grossly inadequate, legal action is often the better route. In both personal injury and workers’ comp cases, having a skilled lawyer on your side is essential for optimal results.
