Workers' Compensation Archives

Maryland construction worker injured by falling paint bucket

Construction workers who repair bridges perform a great service for motorists who must travel over waterways. Bridges require constant maintenance due to weather damage and harm from minerals, ice, and other natural causes. People who repair bridges may have to climb to great heights or dangle precariously on the sides of the bridges to do the work. Sometimes workers stand on platforms built under or next to a bridge in order to reach the surfaces that must be painted or fixed. The dangerous nature of the job can result in a work related injury.

Three workers burned due to hazardous job condition

When workers are hired to perform dangerous jobs, they trust that their employer will provide them with all appropriate safety training and measures. For instance, workers who deal with hazardous chemicals should be trained to recognize any hazards, learn how to minimize the dangers, and wear safety gear to protect their bodies from poisonous substances. When an employer ignores risks and sends employees into dangerous situations, laborers may become victims of a work-related injury

Maryland volunteer firefighter killed on the job

Firefighters have one of the most dangerous jobs imaginable. While comprehensive training and protective gear can be helpful to reduce the threat of injury, there is no guaranty of safety when firefighters are racing into burning buildings hoping to rescue victims. The risk of smoke inhalation, heat exhaustion, or being trapped or hit by burning debris on the job is substantial. Amazingly, some firefighters do not even get paid for the dangerous work, instead they volunteer their time for the good of the community.

New workers' compensation bill: anti-business or pro-worker?

The question posed was: are employees who file workers' compensation claims really as protected from wrongful termination as they thought?
