Receiving Workers’ Compensation Benefits

An employer usually must carry coverage for workers’ compensation, which will provide for those injured in carrying out their duties with:

  • Wage replacement: The wages lost as you heal could devastate your budgets, but fear not for you are entitled to financial assistance while you recover!
  • Medical treatment: The payment for your healing comes from the insurer your employer uses for workers’ compensation. You would not have to bear this burden yourself.
  • Permanent disability: If your injuries are more comprehensive and long-lasting you may find yourself entitled to additional benefits.
  • Death benefits: Should a worker lose their life due to a workplace injury, their families have rights to compensation.

Though these are guaranteed benefits, that does not mean that the road will be easy. Your insurer and employer may do everything possible to avoid their duties. An experienced attorney could hold them accountable! Your injuries could be protected by the glowing blade of justice wielded by a lawyer who cares.

The Process of Filing a Maryland Workers’ Compensation Claim

There are multiple steps in the process of filing a workers’ compensation claim in Maryland. The time frame for taking each step is short, and it is crucial to avoid missing deadlines. An attorney could help a Maryland resident ensure they comply with all workers’ compensation deadlines.

Notifying the Employer: The first step following a workplace accident is for the injured employee to notify their employer. The notification does not have to come directly from the employee, and it could be made to the business owner or direct supervisor. The notification could be in oral or written form. A worker must submit the notice to their employer within ten days of the injury. If the accident involves a fatal work accident, the surviving family has 30 days to notify the employer. In the case of workplace illness, a worker has one year from the date it is discovered to notify their employer.

Filing a Claim: Next, an injured worker must file a claim with the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission. In addition to the claim form, a worker must also include a physician’s report if it is available. Following a workplace injury, a worker has 60 days to file their claim. The deadline for an occupational illness is two years from the date it was discovered.

Insurer’s Decision: After the filing of a claim, the employer’s insurance company has 21 days to either accept or deny the claim. If they accept the claim, the employee would receive benefits payments in a matter of days. However, a denial ends a worker’s claim unless they appeal the decision.
