Medical care for injured workers in Maryland is often covered by their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. This state-mandated benefit provides access to high-quality medical care for people hurt on the job, and a wage replacement benefit to help them pay their bills while out of work recovering. Nearly all state and private employers offer it, and coverage begins on your first day of employment.

However, many hurt workers have trouble getting all the workers’ comp benefits they’re entitled to. As you’re trying to recover and heal, going up against your employer and their insurance company may feel overwhelming. We’re here to help, so call us today. An Essex, MD, workers’ compensation lawyer from Parker, Pallet, Slezak & Russell, LLC, helps protect your rights after a workplace accident and ensures you receive all your legal benefits.

How Can An Essex Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Help Me?

Most Maryland workers’ compensation claims are pretty simple. You report the injury to your employer, go to a company-approved doctor, follow the aftercare instructions, and figure out when you can return to work. You get a partial wage replacement while you’re out of work, usually about 50-70% of your average weekly wage, so you can still pay your bills. But not every claim is problem-free. Some workers may realize that their employer or its insurance company denied the claim. How can you get the benefits you’re entitled to?

Our lawyers can help you file the initial claim for benefits and ensure that all the paperwork and medical records are submitted properly so no delays or omissions cause a denial of benefits. We can also ensure that your rights are protected in a workers’ compensation claim, including protecting your job and preventing employer retaliation.

Complications In Workers’ Comp Cases

Although Maryland workers’ comp covers most workplace accident injuries and treatment for occupational illnesses, there are some situations in which an employer may deny a claim. You may be blamed for causing the accident and have your claim denied. Or, if you contract an occupational illness, such as a respiratory disease from toxic fumes exposure, the insurance company may claim it’s a pre-existing condition or not caused by your working conditions.

A lawyer can gather evidence to support your claim in these situations and more. Evidence may include expert medical witness testimony about how your illness was caused or eyewitness testimony that proves you did not cause the workplace accident. Your attorney may subpoena safety records from your workplace to show that employer oversight or negligence caused the accident.

If you suffer retaliation, like being dismissed from your job after filing a workers’ comp claim or having your hours cut because of your claim, call us. This is illegal – and we can help you fight it.

Standing Up For Your Rights

If your employer denies your claim, the insurance company isn’t paying for your medically necessary treatment, or you suffered retaliation for filing a claim, we can help.
