Distracted driving is a dangerous, ongoing problem

At our law firm, we fight to recover comprehensive compensation for the victims of motor vehicle accidents caused by negligent and reckless drivers. In this time of mobile phones and similar technologies, distracted driving has risen to dangerous new levels.

Injury arising out of and in the course of Maryland employment

Maryland Workers’ Compensation law says that if a worker’s injury arose out of and in the course of employment, the employee will qualify for Workers’ Compensation benefits for that work-related harm. While many cases obviously arise out of and in the course of employment, still others happen during circumstances that are not as clear.

Maryland Workers’ Compensation: Statutory employers

We represent injured Maryland construction workers in their Workers’ Compensation claims and in third-party lawsuits, where appropriate. Last month, the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland decided an unpublished case that sheds light on issues that can arise in construction injury claims involving subcontractor employees.

Maryland Workers’ Compensation: Construction work injuries

At our Maryland law firm, we represent many injured construction workers to recover their rightful workers’ compensation benefits to help with medical bills and lost wages. We also fight for the surviving loved ones of construction workers who have met premature deaths in the course of their jobs. Survivors are likely eligible for death benefits under Maryland Workers’ Compensation law

For losses related to work-related injury and death, workers’ compensation is normally the only legal remedy against the employer, regardless of who was at fault. However, we also investigate the circumstances of each construction work client’s injury or death to determine whether any third party (other than the employer) may be liable in a third-party lawsuit. For example, a manufacturer may have sold a defectively designed or manufactured piece of dangerous construction equipment that contributed to an accident.

Maryland Workers’ Compensation: On-the-job dangers to nurses

At Cohen, Snyder, Eisenberg & Katzenberg, P.A., we advocate for workers from a wide spectrum of industries in their Workers’ Compensation claims. We frequently represent construction workers, who toil in an industry known for its particularly dangerous conditions that can cause debilitating injuries and even death on the job. 

High rates of injury, including those caused by violence toward nurses 

Is PTSD compensable under Maryland Workers’ Compensation law?

The short answer to this question is yes, but it depends. We represent clients with a wide variety of mental and physical work-related impairments, including post-traumatic stress disorder, often referred to as PTSD. The disease itself as well as how Maryland Workers’ Compensation law treats it are extremely complex. It is important after work-related trauma not only to get mental health treatment, but also to consult a Workers’ Compensation lawyer with specific PTSD experience. 

What is PTSD? 

Maryland Workers’ Compensation: vocational rehabilitation

A Maryland employee who sustains a work-related injury or develops an occupational disease is entitled to Workers’ Compensation. Most people think of Workers’ Compensation as consisting of payments that are a percent of the person’s average wages, as well as medical treatment.

Justice for Maryland pedestrian accident victims

At our law firm, we have advocated for decades for just compensation for injured Maryland pedestrians hit by motor vehicles of all types and sizes. We also represent surviving loved ones in wrongful death suits seeking justice for pedestrians who died in these kinds of accidents. 

These crashes are unsettlingly common. An Internet search normally reveals several recent incidents. For example, in the past month: 

  • A University of Maryland student was hit by an SUV as she was crossing the road on a Sunday morning, after which she died.
  • In Finksburg, a car fatally hit a 50-year-old woman walking in the evening along a road against traffic.
  • On Interstate 495 near Forrestville, a vehicle hit a man changing a tire on a semi truck. He suffered “critical, but non-life threatening,” injury, according to The BayNet.

Maryland high court ruling on subsequent intervening events

Here at Cohen, Snyder, Eisenberg & Katzenberg, P.A., we represent people in Workers’ Compensation claims of all types and at all stages of the application and appeals process. We do not hesitate to take cases involving complex legal issues. 

Pre-existing conditions 

Might technology help prevent semi-truck accidents in the future?

Here at Cohen, Snyder, Eisenberg & Katzenberg, P.A., we advocate for the victims of motor vehicle accidents across the state of Maryland involving large commercial trucks. Semi-truck collisions involve many sophisticated evidentiary issues such as: 

  • Whether the driver complied with hours-of-service regulations to reduce fatigue
  • Whether improper maintenance was performed on the 18-wheeler
  • Whether the driver was distracted
  • Whether alcohol or drugs were involved
  • Whether freight was improperly loaded or the load was too heavy
  • Whether the roadway or intersection was improperly or dangerously designed
  • Whether the driver broke traffic laws like those regulating speeding or rights of way
  • Whether the driver drove in a negligent, reckless or aggressive manner
  • Whether equipment or parts were dangerously or defectively designed or manufactured
  • Whether the roadway was properly repaired, maintained or treated for weather conditions
  • Whether the driver was adequately screened and trained
  • And more
