Workers’ compensation is insurance purchased by an employer to cover situations when an employee is hurt or made ill while at work. Maryland law requires most employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. It covers things such as:
• Medical expenses – hospital stays, medications, emergency care
• Ongoing medical costs – such as physical or psychological therapy
• Lost wages – including partial coverage of wages lost when recovering from a work-related illness or injury
• Disability benefits – covers injuries which caused partial or permanent disability
• Death benefits – most often includes funeral costs and survivor benefits for worker’s family
To learn more about workers’ compensation and hear what Malloy Law Offices, LLC can do to help you receive compensation for your work-related injury, speak with an experienced White Oak workers’ compensation attorney from our legal team.
In order to receive the full compensation, you must utilize the workers’ compensation process. To do that contact your employer and notify them of your work-related injury or illness as soon as possible. You only have 10 days to do so. Furthermore, you only have 60 days to file a workers’ compensation claim in Maryland.
It is important to seek the counsel of an experienced White Oak workers’ compensation attorney at that point because you want to ensure your employer and its insurance company do not attempt to contest your claim or diminish its value in some way.
When you procure the services of a skilled White Oak workers’ compensation attorney from Malloy Law Offices, LLC, we will make sure you receive the full compensation your injuries warrant. That most often means representing you in front of the Workers’ Compensation Commission. We will build a solid case backed by evidence to demonstrate that you are entitled to receive the benefits requested via the claims process.
This hearing can make or break your chances of obtaining the full compensation you deserve. Therefore, if you represent yourself, the many challenges of a workers’ compensation case may hurt your claim if you don’t handle them correctly. Many victims injured at work have attempted to represent themselves throughout the claims process. Although they may have received some measure of compensation for their efforts, it is most often a fraction of what they should have received. Instead, hire an experienced attorney from our law firm and give yourself a fighting chance to maximize the compensation you recover.
Many individuals injured while working will forego legal representation because they think it will cost too much to hire a good lawyer. That is not the case when you hire an attorney from Malloy Law Offices, LLC because we work on a contingency fee basis. Working on a contingency fee basis mean that you don’t pay anything out of pocket. Moreover, talking to an attorney is free, so contact our firm with any questions.
