What If My Work Injury Was My Fault?

The biggest question I get when people call, or when they ask me about workers’ compensation, is they say, “Well I got hurt at work, but it was my fault, so I can’t get workers’ compensation.” That’s a misconception that I really want to stop people from having because that’s the whole point of workers’ compensation: that if you get hurt at work regardless of whether it’s your fault or your employer’s fault, fault doesn’t matter.

If you get hurt at work, it’s covered by workers’ compensation insurance, and that’s really just the bottom line when it comes to fault.

If you were injured while on a job site, in the course of your duties, or in a work-related accident, you can make a claim for benefits. The type of benefits you may claim could depend on the type of injury you sustained. That is why you want an experienced Maryland workers’ compensation lawyer on your side.
