Maryland residents should be aware of the need to have an estate plan, regardless of their age and family situation. Estate Planning documents are vital as they provide a guideline on things such as how the person's assets will be distributed, who the personal representative will be, whether there is a living will or healthcare proxy, whether trusts and guardianships are needed, and more.
In addition to accidental injuries on the job, Maryland Workers' Compensation law provides for certain occupational diseases if a worker suffers a disablement or dies as a result of the occupational disease. Certain occupational diseases for public safety employees are presumed to be compensable or to have been suffered in the line of duty as a result of their employment.
The question to ask when someone is injured, is whether it was as a result of another person or company's negligence. Everyone should always be aware of their surroundings and cautious in everyday activities. Injuries can happen at any time without warning, at work, while driving, walking on a business property. Unexpected injuries result medical bills and other unexpected expenses. If the injury is as a result caused by someone else, those medical bills and expenses can be recovered. Contact KMA Law Office for assistance in determining if an injury was a result of negligence and get assistance in recovering medical bills and expenses.
