Maryland worker injured on the job when hit by driver on I-95

For Maryland workers the risk of an injury on job is always present. Workers are injured everyday while performing a variety of tasks and in a variety of workplace settings. For many workers they face a risk of work injury even when performing work that is assumed to be safe. When an injury occurs, the worker and those who are dependent upon them are protected by worker's compensation laws.

One Maryland worker was recently injured on the job when it was least expected. The man was hit by a motorist while cutting the grass on the median of I-95. Thankfully he sustained non life-threatening injuries and was taken to the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, a local unit at University of Maryland Medical Center. His employer has confirmed that he was injured on the job.

An employee injured on the job is entitled to compensation thanks to worker's compensation laws. Worker's compensation is a form of insurance in place to protect injured workers and simplify an employer's legal risks. Whether the injury was the result of inadequate maintenance, dangerous working conditions or improper supervision worker's compensation laws protect workers and help with recovery. Depending on the injury's severity a worker may recover a variety of benefits.

Those benefits include medical care expenses to relieve the injury's effects, temporary disability payments for the time away from work, and even wage loss compensation if the employee returns to work. The injured worker may also be entitled to payments for any permanent disability and assistance in finding another job if unable to return to the original job. A person who is injured at work should be familiar with all of their rights.
