A bit about workers' compensation

People get hurt on the job or suffer job-related illnesses every day. Maryland residents who find themselves victims of work-related injuries or ailments may have compensation available to them. Most employers are required to have workers' compensation insurance. All employees have to do after suffering an injury on the job or illness due to his or her work duties is file a claim to get the compensation process rolling.

Some people put off filing workers' compensation claims because they are not sure if their injuries qualify for relief. Waiting to file could result in a missed opportunity to have one's losses covered. The qualifications to receive these benefits are as follows:

  • Employer offers workers' comp coverage
  • The injury/illness was work-related
  • The claim was filed on time

If one meets all the necessary qualifications, one would think that obtaining workers' comp benefits would be easy. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Some people may find that they have to jump through a dozen hoops before any relief is offered to them. Some may find their claims ultimately denied. Then there are those who receive benefits only to find they are not happy with the coverage provided to them.

After suffering an injury or work-related illness, getting medical treatment as soon as possible is the top priority. Getting one's losses covered, though important, is not an immediate concern. After seeking treatment and obtaining a diagnosis, one may file the claims necessary to seek workers' compensation benefits. Maryland residents who are worried about filing such claims alone or who are struggling to achieve fair compensation for their losses may turn to an experienced workers' comp attorney for assistance with the matter.
