Workers’ Compensation Firm Fights for Injured Employees in [Maryland]
Assertive and experienced attorney to obtain all the benefits for workers hurt on the job
When you are injured during the course of your employment, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Most employers are mandated by state law to carry this no-fault insurance program which provides employees with benefits that cover medical costs, lost wages, and vocational rehabilitation. Importantly, I also will seek compensation for any permanent impairment that you have as result of your workers’ compensation claim. I work tirelessly to for my clients and will not hesitate to request a hearing if the employer is not providing the benefits that you are legally entitled to receive. In certain situations, I will even request an emergency hearing where there can be a hearing on an expedited basis. I will fight for you to receive all the compensation benefits the for the injury or occupational diseases (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome) sustained on the job. I am committed to getting you all the benefits that you rightly deserve. THERE IS NO ATTORNEY FEE FOR YOUR WORKERS’ COMPENSATION CLAIM UNLESS YOU RECEIVE BENEFITS FOR YOUR CLAIM!
Results-oriented workers’ comp lawyer presses for the benefits you’re entitled to
While workers’ compensation benefits are provided by employers’ insurance companies, those benefits are mandated by state law The benefits most often cover:
- Medical, hospital and rehabilitation expenses
- Lost wages
- Compensation for permanent disability
- Dependents’ recovery for a worker’s death
It’s important to notify your employer as soon as possible after you’ve sustained an on-the-job injury. Neglecting to do so could affect your ability to claim the benefits you deserve.
Tenacious advocate assists with your workers’ compensation appeal
The workers’ compensation insurance carriers are like all insurance carriers: their goal is to limit liability and pay as little as possible in claim benefits. That’s why it’s essential that you’re represented by an experienced workers’ comp attorney who knows the laws governing Maryland workers’ compensation and will fight hard for you. I will handle your claim through every step of the process and handle any hearing before the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission.
Knowledgeable counselor advises on third party claims
If you are eligible for benefits under the workers’ compensation system, you cannot file a separate negligence action against your employer. Workers’ compensation coverage pays benefits for any permanent impairment (including disfigurement), medical costs, lost wages and vocational rehabilitation. It does not pay for other types of damages available in personal injury actions, such as compensation for pain and suffering. When you believe that someone besides your employer bears some fault for your work-related injury, such as a negligent driver or a the manufacturer of a defective product, I can advise whether you may also have a third party claim that will allow you to seek damages, in addition to your workers’ comp benefits, by holding the at fault/negligent party accountable.
