We recently discussed how the legal relationship between a worker and an employer can affect workers' compensation claims. Specifically, we considered the question of whether a subcontractor's employee can receive workers' comp benefits through the contractor.
If you have been seriously injured while working for a contractor, then it is important to have a work injury attorney handle your case and protect your rights. Depending on the facts of the accident, it may be appropriate to sue the contractor for negligence. With that in mind, consider a Maryland case that was recently reported in The Washington Post.
