HOW MUCH IS MY BALTIMORE PERSONAL INJURY CASE WORTH? I think my injury is related to my work...but
An employee who sustains an accidental injury arising out of his or her employment is entitled to worker's compensation benefits. Experienced Baltimore personal injury lawyers advise their clients that "arising out of" employment means that the injury results from some incident of employment. That is to say, if the injury occurs during works hours, at a place where the employee is expected at that time, and results from an activity reasonably related to the work, then it arises out of that work. In that instance, the knowledgeable Baltimore personal injury lawyer will seek worker's compensation benefits for the injured client. If there is evidence that the injury is related to something other that work activities e.g. a drug interaction or heart attack, then an aggressive Baltimore personal injury lawyer will need to examine the cause of the injury for evidence of the negligence or culpability of a third party if their client is to recover.
