Construction worker hurt in fall might need workers' compensation

There are always a significant number of construction projects in progress throughout Maryland. While this is a boon to the economy, improves the landscape and provides jobs for construction workers, there are inherent dangers with this type of employment. Construction crews should make sure they comply with safety rules and are fully protected in case there is an accident. Even if they take all the proper precautions, accidents and injuries can happen. Injured workers who miss time on the job must be aware of the necessary steps to receive workers' compensation benefits.

Risky jobs can cause personal injury and death in Maryland

Maryland residents can suffer personal injury and death in many ways whether it is when they are out on the road as drivers or pedestrians or it is because of an accident while at work. Since these incidents are so unexpected and can be costly in an endless number of ways, those who are affected by it should remember that they have the right to seek compensation for medical costs, lost income, lost companionship, pain and suffering and more. Although it can be difficult to think about, calling for legal advice immediately is imperative to gather evidence for a potential claim. This is especially true when it is a fatal work accident.

Teen drivers enhance risk of personal injury and death in summer

The roads in Maryland and across the nation can be treacherous at any time of year, but there are certain months when that danger is exacerbated by circumstances. One such time is the summer. A significant factor in the enhanced risk is the number of teens who are on the road. Often, these crashes are because they were behaving in ways that increase the chances of an accident. It is important to know what must be done in the aftermath of these incidents.

What workers' compensation benefits can I get for a hernia?

Maryland workers might think workers' compensation benefits are limited to injuries where they have broken bones, head injuries, back injuries and worse. However, any injury, condition or illness that limits the person's ability to do his or her job and came about because of the work they were doing can warrant workers' compensation benefits. The amount of benefits the worker receives will vary, but some level of workers' comp can be provided in many instances. One such injury is a hernia. For people suffering from this issue, it is wise to understand the requirements to get benefits.

Estate planning excuses that do not stand the test of time

One of the biggest issues with estate planning in Maryland is that people are reluctant to take that first step and create even a basic document that addresses their needs. Even those who have excuses that sound reasonable are mistaken when they do not take certain steps with their estate plan. To break through those excuses, it is imperative to know why the most frequently cited justifications for not having an estate plan are illogical. As with any legal concern, a law firm experienced in estate planning can help.
