Workers' compensation available to assaulted school employees

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.

According to reports, on Tuesday, Nov. 27, a cafeteria worker at National Academy Foundation School of Baltimore is said to have gotten into a disagreement with a student over milk. The student then physically attacked the employee. The extent of her injuries is unknown. She is currently on leave recovery due to the attack.

Workers' compensation covers the cost to treat injuries suffered in the workplace. It can also cover income loss resulting from needing to take time off of work for recovery. Unfortunately, some individuals may find their workers' comp claims denied or only partially paid. This does not mean that they are out of luck. There may be something they can do about it.

Workers' compensation claims are all about following procedure and providing details. If information is missing, if claims are not submitted on time, if there are any concerns about the validity of the claim, denial or poor compensation may result. Maryland school employees who have suffered injuries on the job -- whether as a result of assaults committed by students or some other reason -- can turn to legal counsel to get help fighting for fair and full compensation.
