Head And Neck Injuries Can Impact Your Ability To Live And Work
Head and neck injuries range from traumatic brain injuries to pinched nerves, neck fractures and cervical injuries. The damage may not even be visible in the case of traumatic brain injuries. Aside from the permanent pain and medical treatments, you may be unable to work and are looking at additional medical expenses in the future. Maryland worker’s compensation laws allow head and neck injury victims to recover for their lost wages and expenses.
Not all injuries are covered by workers’ compensation, even if the injury happened on the job. In Maryland, for an injury to be covered, the harm suffered by the employee must have been caused by an “accidental personal injury arising out of and in the course of employment.” While this sounds like confusing jargon, it is a crucial distinction to determine your eligibility for workers’ compensation benefits.
Another factor required to obtain workers’ compensation benefits is a genuine employee-employer relationship. For example, some businesses hire only independent contractors, and some don’t have employees. Workers in these categories may elect for worker’s compensation insurance.
