If you have been injured or ill because of your work in Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, D.C., there are many, many different kinds of workplace injuries an experienced workers compensation lawyer from Cohen & Cohen, P.C. may be able to help you with. The laws in each of these states are specific to each state even though there are many similarities between the three. A significant difference between Virginia workers compensation insurance requirements and those of Maryland and D.C. is that in Maryland and D.C. for the most part, employers are required to have workers compensation insurance if they employ even just one employee. Virginia law though only requires that employers carry workers compensation insurance if they regularly employ three or more part-time or full-time employees.
