Injured workers are entitled to workers' compensation benefits if they've sustained an accidental injury that is connected with their employment while in the scope and course of their employment. All three elements must be present for the entitlement to benefits to be triggered. Injured workers in Maryland can also qualify for workers' compensation under a occupational illness analysis where a long term exposure to a harmful toxic substance connected with the work causes symptoms that might not manifest themselves for many years down the line. When they do manifest, that injured individual is entitled to workers' compensation benefits.
