Maryland Workers’ Compensation — Occupational disease

| Feb 12, 2019 | Firm News

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. 

There are specific requirements that must be met to protect a claim for an occupational disease.  It is important to consult with an experienced Maryland Workers’ Compensation attorney to determine if a worker has a compensable occupational disease.
