Seeking help or legal guidance from a Baltimore Maryland (MD) workers’ compensation personal injury attorney?  Quality Legal Network is the very best, most experienced, professional and highest quality referral source for workers’ compensation legal representation for Baltimore area employees.


All too often a workplace personal injury isn’t properly handled, and the worker or employee isn’t properly compensated over the long term.  Whether at the time of the accident or injury, or long after (when the injury becomes more apparent), finding a trusted, experienced workers’ compensation and personal injury lawyer in Baltimore has been very difficult. It simply isn’t easy to wade through the advertisements, TV and Internet claims of every Baltimore lawyer or legal group claiming fast, unbelievable results.  Until now.

The Quality Legal Network Workers’ Compensation lawyer referral service in Baltimore is an information and referral source specifically for handling the most complex, difficult or otherwise hard to understand or manage situations regarding workplace injury, workers’ compensation or other personal injury claims in the Baltimore, MD area. This covers workplaces and employers in Baltimore City and its neighborhoods, the nearby counties of Anne Arundel, Caroll, Harford and Howard, and other areas including Calverton, Brooklyn Park, Arbutus, Rosedale, Dundalk, Catonsville, Lochearn, Overlea, Parkville, Essex, Ferndale, Elkridge, Glen Burnie, Towson, Rossville, Pikesville, and areas near the Baltimore/Washington International Airport (a.k.a. BWI or Thurgood Marshall Airport).

Workplace injuries can cause serious financial hardship and health concerns for some people. Filing a worker’s compensation claim in the Baltimore area, and seeking advice, help and guidance from a Baltimore-based workers compensation lawyer can at minimum help cover the costs of medical expenses incurred during the recovery timeframe. Workers’ compensation laws do vary from state to state (see FAQs from the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission (WCC) ), but generally, expenses for surgery, hospital care, nursing services, pharmacy, and even travel for medical or therapy appointments can be covered under workers compensation. Sometimes it’s even possible for injured employees to obtain payment for any future medical expenses due to on-the-job injuries, and these future payments can sometimes continue for life. In the event of death, a worker’s surviving spouse and/or dependents might be entitled to receive the benefits that otherwise would have gone to the worker.

The most highly experienced and trusted workers’ comp lawyers are well-known to Quality Legal Network and the industry, and among local, professional peer networks – with superb reputations and track records of very successful representation and client satisfaction…meaning workers’ comp monetary awards and other recovery-related compensation.  These lawyers maintain and demonstrate specific expertise regarding Maryland state, local and business law, in addition to employment-related Federal regulations and policies.

Managed Security Return on Investment (ROI) for Building, Facility Security Services

How is a useful “return on investment” (ROI) regarding managed security services for buildings and facilities truly measured? This managed security solutions industry briefing explores the ROI topic and provides references for further professional information and advice.

Achieving an environment of safe, secure and productive employees or guests is both the strategic and tactical imperative of all facility managers. Whether your location is in a difficult area of town to monitor, your building is spread among diverse landscape features, or your visitor and guest movements are extremely unpredictable; building security managers are constantly planning, reviewing, implementing, analyzing and modifying all elements of the building security context. It’s an extremely challenging, constant and sometimes failure-prone exercise – to completely secure and safeguard a building’s occupants and assets. That’s why many facility managers turn for help to professional managed security services providers, who offer time-tested, proven best practices and tools for a holistic security system management solution.

Much like an “Infrastructure as a Service” (IaaS) provider of computer technology and services offers to Internet businesses, managed security solutions for buildings and facilities offer a fully-vetted, tested and proven set of skills, methods and tools to completely mitigate all known facility security risks. Many building security risks may be known and unique to your own facility, but a national managed security services provider will also bring to bear thousands of “lessons learned” and risk avoidance experiences from their inventory of past or existing clients. This practice of leveraging a managed security service provider’s experience is increasingly common in the broad and complex discipline of building security management solutions, becoming as common as leveraging very experienced IT consultants for the scenarios they’ve tackled over hundred of clients with similar objectives.

As a prominent industry example, Kastle Systems Managed Security provides building and facility security managers a “Security as a Service” (SECaaS) capability – though not only as commonly defined by providing “security software system management and solutions as a service”, but also by providing “physical facility or building security management, skills, personnel expertise and training” as a service. In fact, many data centers actually do offer SECaaS that includes not only IT software and data protection, but also physical security design, technology and personnel protection as part of the facility itself. Kastle Systems provides security as a service through an extremely mature, proven and comprehensive set of managed security products and solutions specifically for buildings and facilities, including secure access control, video security, fire and life safety systems, intrusion detection and environmental control monitoring and reporting products.

A SECaaS approach to managing your building’s security plan and execution helps reduce and shift security-related risk and costs to an external provider, away from your internal staff and budget. Costs including personnel staffing, training, customized onsite systems and constant research and education for security policy and approach maturity are typically borne by your company or perhaps a standard property management firm (without adequate expertise in building security). A managed security services provider like Kastle Systems can design and operate a single facet of your security plan, or the entire scope of protective needs and objectives – whatever approach is most effective and mitigates the right scope of risk for your property.

Your return on investment (ROI) using an SECaaS approach for the critical elements of your building security management execution will be most quickly and easily measurable from a direct reduction in costs spent addressing out-of-date risks. Risks are typically measured by evaluating the “impact of loss” rating against the “vulnerability to threat” exposure, per given threat (i.e. natural, criminal, terrorist, accidental). Out-of-date risks are those that are no longer current (yet may still be monitored via expensive systems); for example the assets being protected have been fully depreciated or replaced (and are therefore no longer critical), or the threat being monitored is overcome by events (i.e. recent public construction has eliminated a flood or crowd access issue).

Managed building security ROI is also measured from a cost avoidance perspective – avoiding direct employee costs for constant retraining, keeping up with industry tools and developing new techniques for growing security threats. As well, the ROI will be expressed as an overall confidence, satisfaction and productivity factor experienced by your building managers, security staff, employees and visitors. This kind of “qualitative” ROI can be measured through employee or building occupant surveys or feedback, the overall improvement in building traffic and expected activity profiles, along with a decrease in security incidents and monitoring events.

For more information or guidance about how a managed building security system solution, implemented in a “Security as a Service” model, can comprehensively improve your facility, space or asset management ROI – contact a reputable, experienced national managed security services provider like Kastle Systems.

DC & Northern Virginia Video Production Studio Services – Trivision & National Gallery of Art

Gateway to Loudoun shoutout to local DC, Northern Virginia audio/video production and marketing/PR firm Trivision Studios in Chantilly – amazing and beautiful video work accompanying popular, rare exhibit currently at the National Gallery of Art (through April 29, 2012!).

National Gallery of Art Exhibits Rare Japanese Paintings: “Colorful Realm”

Japan marked the 100th anniversary of its gift of cherry blossom trees to Washington, D.C. by lending the National Gallery of Art an exhibition of a world-renowned cultural treasure: Colorful Realm of Living Beings by Itō Jakuchū. The historic 30-scroll set of bird-and-flower paintings on silk with three-panel altar piece, which was painted in the mid-1700s, can be seen at the National Gallery of Art’s West Building from March 30 through April 29, 2012. The exhibition is on loan from the Japanese Emperor’s Imperial Household private collection and is being seen outside of Japan for the first time.

Colorful Realm of Living Beings by Itō Jakuchū

Masterpieces of Japanese paintingsWidely considered as one of the supreme masterpieces of Japanese paintings, Colorful Realm depicts each of its 30 subjects in meticulous detail, going beyond surface appearances. Most notable is the artist’s application of paint to the backside of the silk which becomes visible from the front, creating a unique glow and inner life within the painting. Due to their extreme fragility, the scrolls will be exhibited in a low-light setting for only four weeks and are a major high point of the 2012 National Cherry Blossom Festival.

For this once-in-a-lifetime art exhibition, the DC National Gallery commissioned TriVision Studios to provide onsite video production, editing and media/PR services for their private VIP viewing that took place on March 26, 2012. Having worked with the National Gallery before, TriVision DC video production services were up for the task of documenting various aspects of the cultural event and record VIP interviews for educational and media use.

TriVision productionTriVision Video Production Studios produced full-scale, high definition B-roll of the exhibition, with speech excerpts, along with VIP interviews of the Japanese Ambassador, the exhibition curator, and the corporate sponsors who made it possible. The team also shot footage of the opening Buddhist dedication ceremony with monks from the Kyoto monastery where the three-panel altar piece is housed, capturing observer reactions who were viewing the priceless scrolls behind plexiglass panels.
