Attorneys Protecting Your Rights Under Maryland Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation is a state-regulated insurance program in place to compensate both lost income and medical costs for employees who have suffered an injury or illness directly related to their work.

In the event that you have suffered a workplace injury or illness, it’s important to immediately consult a workers’ compensation lawyer to help you file a claim and obtain your lawful compensation. If you are in the Severn area, please reach out to our attorneys at Trevillian Law to ensure your legal rights are upheld to the fullest extent of the law today.

How Workers’ Compensation Works In Maryland

In Maryland, employees who are injured at work are potentially eligible for workman compensation benefits. However, not all injuries that occurred at the place of employment are covered – the injury needs to have been “an accidental personal injury arising out of and in the course of employment” before it is compensable.

Workplace injuries can be caused for a wide variety of reasons: from equipment malfunctions to safety failures, the results can range from spinal cord injury, broken bones, falls or even amputations. If you work in a construction or industrial area, you are more likely to be at risk for serious injuries.

Available Benefits

There are four kinds of benefits available for workers’ comp: income, medical, death and burial. Provided your claim is successful, the medical benefits you will receive include compensation for prescriptions, medical equipment, hospitalization, surgery and general medical treatment.

There are four types of income benefits available if you are deemed eligible for workers’ compensation in Severn or elsewhere: temporary total disability, temporary partial disability, permanent partial disability or permanent total disability. This will be determined by your doctor and directly affects the amount of financial compensation you will receive.

Why You Need A Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Filing a workers’ compensation claim is a tedious, time-consuming process and it can directly affect your outcome for potentially the rest of your life. Employers generally will do whatever possible to avoid paying out your workers’ compensation; even if your claim is successful, not consulting a workers’ compensation lawyer will often lead to a significantly lower payout or fewer benefits.

Your attorney will help you stay ahead of all deadlines, fight for an appeal if your claim is denied, and simply help you navigate the tricky world of work injuries and workers’ compensation. Your lawyer will also review your case to determine whether you can also file a third-party liability claim – a personal injury claim against someone other than your employer.
