Anyone in Maryland who has suffered an injury at work likely has a lot of questions about getting treated and covering their losses while they are unable to work. Workers' compensation is supposed to be there to protect employees, but getting fair and full relief following a work injury can be more difficult than people realize. Here are some things everyone should know about workers' compensation.
Large commercial vehicles are seen on Maryland roads every day. Most people strongly dislike sharing the roads with them as they are simply intimidating to drive around. Sadly, trucking accidents happen and the victims or -- in the event of fatality -- their surviving family members may experience devastating losses. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your losses.
Regardless of your age, the proper amount of sleep is essential to your health and well-being. Not only does sleep keep you feeling your best, but it also enhances your safety when behind the wheel of an automobile.
Every day, distracted drivers are seen on Maryland roads. They are seen texting, talking on their cellphones, putting on makeup, eating or interacting with passengers -- among other things. Sadly, a number of these drivers end up causing accidents that leave others injured or dead. The victims of distracted driving accidents or -- in the event of fatality -- their loved ones may seek compensation for their losses.
Car technology keeps evolving, and safety features are changing right along with it.
Working in a school, helping children grow, learn and develop is supposed to be rewarding. Unfortunately, in Maryland, working in a school can be a dangerous affair, as every year numerous teachers and staff members are assaulted by the students that they serve. Recently, in Baltimore, an alleged assault left a cafeteria worker injured. This individual may a file workers' compensation claim to cover her resulting losses.
