If you’re injured on the job and unable to work, how will you pay your bills? In most states, employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, which provides for those who are injured or become sick or disabled as a result of their work activities.
The Workers’ Compensation Law in Maryland is specific about what types of injuries are covered. These injuries fall into two categories: accidental injury and occupational disease. Under Maryland law, if you are injured on the job, you may be entitled to disability benefits, medical and hospitalization costs, wage reimbursement, and vocational rehabilitation.
