Maryland worker’s compensation claims are subject to their own unique regulatory schemes, rules and procedures. As a result, the process for filing a claim can be very complex. You need an experienced Maryland worker’s compensation lawyer to help you bring your claims.
Nearly all employers in Maryland are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Under the workers’ compensation system, employers agree to pay medical expenses and lost wages for an employee’s job-related injury or illness, even if the employee is at fault for his or her injuries. In exchange, the employee agrees not to sue his or her employer in court for damages. However, besides a worker’s compensation claim, you may have recourse against other third parties still. The attorneys at Mohammadi & Humayun, LLC can help you understand your legal remedies and answer your questions.
Worker’s compensation is very much like an insurance policy for the employer and was meant to as a system to support injured employees. However, just like private insurance, they want to protect their bottom line. Therefore, many claims get denied for procedural or technical reasons. It is very common for employees to encounter lengthy delays and many administrative hurdles while their claims are pending.
To add to the mess, many claims are contested, which causes further delay or even denial of valid claims. Many of these contested claims end up before a Worker’s Compensation Law Judge, where testimony and evidence must be presented to support the claim. To maximize the chance of recovery on your claim, you should hire a worker’s compensation attorney. Contact us today for your free consultation at (301) 800-0880 or via our online contact form.
