Work Injury Benefits – Your Rights Under the Law
The Maryland workers’ compensation system protects employees and their dependents from financial hardships that arise from job-related injuries. Under this system, employees first file a claim with the Workers’ Compensation Commission; the Commission’s decision may later be appealed in a circuit court.
Employees do not need to prove that the employer was at fault when submitting a claim with the Commission. The work-injury benefits to which an injured employee is entitled depend on the nature and extent of the injury involved. These benefits may include compensation for:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses (including doctor visits and prescriptions)
- Death benefits
- Out-of-pocket costs
- Mileage for travel to therapy or treatment
- Money award for
Although work-related injuries are likely to happen on construction sites, in chemical factories and in manufacturing plants, they are also common in office environments, where injuries can include:
- Repetitive strain syndrome
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Muscle strain
