Injured Maryland employees deserve compensation

All employees have the right to expect their employers to provide a safe working environment for them to perform their work responsibilities. Depending on the type of work involved, some employees could be at risk of a workplace injury, particularly if there are certain occupational hazards. Some injuries may occur suddenly such as from a fall. Others, however, may develop gradually over time. For example, the repeated exposure to loud sounds during work hours could cause hearing loss before an employee is even aware of the damage.
