During a meeting with Winnie, Ralph, the GC owners, and you, the owners asked several questions about their potential liability for on-the-job accidents resulting in injuries to employees. They particularly need an explanation about Maryland’s workers’ compensation law.
Winnie and Ralph asked you to respond to the following question.
Dave, a GC cleaning employee, accidentally fell off a ladder during a GC training exercise and injured himself. Dave was taken to the hospital ER, treated, and released. He missed one week of work because of this injury.
- Analyze whether Jack could recover for his medical expenses under Maryland’s workers’ compensation law and why/how.
- Analyze and explain what, if anything, Jack could recover for loss of wages for the one week he was unable to work as a result of the accident.
