Compassionate Guidance, Fearless Representation

Obtaining Maryland workers' compensation benefits

If faced with a serious injury on the job, as long as you worked within the scope of your employment, you may receive workers' compensation benefits. The state of Maryland works diligently to determine the exact compensation required to ensure your financial stability and help you recover quickly. Workers' compensation ensures that your employer or employer's insurance pays your expenses due to your work injury.

Hiring an experienced workers' compensation attorney proves crucial in working to receive all necessary benefits. Some companies try to avoid paying all required benefits after a worker's injury, but you can provide the best case for your expenses by utilizing an attorney's skill and guidance. Because injuries can result in serious debt, you want to ensure you receive all the benefits available to you.

Workers' compensation in Maryland

According to Maryland law, you are deemed eligible for workers' compensation if:

  • You were acting in the scope of your employment
  • You suffered an accidental injury

Workers' compensation is meant to pay for injury treatment and provide wage-replacement benefits until you can return to work. You will file a claim after you suffer an injury, but it is important to seek medical treatment immediately.

If your injury falls under workers' compensation protection, you may be eligible for benefits for the following expenses.

  • Doctor bills
  • Hospital bills and emergency room visits
  • Physical therapy
  • Prescriptions

In addition to medical benefits, you may also receive compensation if you cannot work for a period of time after the injury. You may receive two-thirds of your weekly wage until you can return to work. That is, unless you are a firefighter or public safety officer, in which case your wage benefit will be higher. Your employer's insurance will mostly likely cover your attorneys' fees as well if you receive benefits through a claim.

Hiring an attorney ensures that you have the best opportunity to receive workers' compensation benefits for your injury. When you file, if your employer disputes the claim, your attorney will work diligently to determine your required compensation. Your employer or their insurance company should be held responsible if you were injured on the job.
