What benefits are available under Maryland Workers’ Compensation?

When a Maryland worker is eligible for Workers’ Compensation, the nature of the particular work-related injury or illness determines the kind and amount of benefits allowed. Each state has its own laws that set out the benefit types and Maryland’s benefit scheme is particularly complex. 

Traumatic brain injury from motor vehicle accidents

Here at Cohen, Snyder, Eisenberg & Katzenberg, P.A., we represent people who have been harmed in motor vehicle accidents caused by the negligence or recklessness of others. Unfortunately, people involved in car crashes experience brain injury all too often and it is important to engage legal counsel with substantial understanding of what is involved in recovering adequate damages to pay for past, present and future needs of the brain-injury victim.

What is the going-and-coming rule?

Broadly, an injured or sick worker is eligible for Maryland workers’ compensation benefits if the injury or disease is work related. The legal and factual question is whether an injury or illness arose out of and in the scope of employment. When a claim is denied, whether the injury met this standard is often the issue disputed by the employer or insurer

Workers’ compensation exclusivity bars NFL painkiller suit

In July, a federal judge in California dismissed a class action lawsuit on behalf of former players against the NFL. The plaintiffs alleged that injured players were given painkillers to allow them to resume play, sometimes causing permanent injury. The judge said that workers’ compensation laws in the three states at issue barred the lawsuits directly against the NFL as employer because workers’ compensation almost always the exclusive and only legal remedy for work-related injuries.
