Is carpal tunnel syndrome covered by Maryland workers' comp?

If you've ever glanced at Maryland's worker's compensation laws or perhaps read our September post regarding injuries covered by workers comp benefits, then you'd know that Maryland law includes a very specific phrase that can create problems for injured workers.

This means that not all injuries are covered, only those resulting from work duties or because of the type of work performed.

In a split second, a car accident can change a life forever. Damage to a vehicle can easily rack up hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in repairs. If injuries were suffered in the crash, medical bills may be the next mounting debt that can be equally as frustrating and overwhelming. If the collision was serious enough, the death of a loved one may only exacerbate the situation, leaving funeral and burial costs that few families ever budget for.

The phrase literally tells the other person that you feel bad that they are going through such a rough time in their life.
