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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.
