Report Your Injury: Speak To Your Employer Right Away
Workplace injuries do not just happen on construction sites or manufacturing plants. They can happen to bus drivers, retail clerks, teachers, health care workers, bankers and other professionals.
Do you have a work-related injury or illness? Report it to your employer as soon as possible. Getting medical attention right away after an accident will be crucial to your workers’ compensation claim. Medical records are critical documentation to prove the severity of your injuries or illness, should you develop long-term injuries or become seriously ill due to your work environment. In the case of illness or disease, you must inform your employer as soon as you discover your illness is due to your work environment or the activities your employer pays you to perform.
Sometimes, employees fail to report their injuries. Some fear losing their position or job. Others are confused by Maryland’s workers’ compensation procedure because it is challenging to understand.
Who Can Collect Workers’ Compensation?
Maryland’s workers’ compensation benefits are for employees who have accidental injuries or occupational diseases that could “arise out of employment” and “arise in the course of employment,” including, but not limited to, the following:
- Lung diseases
- Skin disorders
- Hearing impairment
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Certain cancers
- Falls from ladders or scaffolding
- Slip and falls
- Car accidents
- Truck crashes
- Forklift collisions
- Chemical exposure
