Work injuries and the claims surrounding them often bring about the most questions from our clients who have been injured in the workplace or in the course of their work. The practice of worker’s compensation law is a vast and complicated area of law that in Maryland is guided by statutes specifically designed for injuries in and around the workplace. Since COVID-19 hit in March 2020 many people feel that they are fortunate just to have a job to go to. It may seem wise to try to tough it out after an on the job injury but it is not. First and foremost your health is the most important thing. Being hurt on the job, and attempting to push through it, can make things much worse. Also, the longer you wait to tell your employer about your injury and the longer you take to get medical care the more difficult it becomes to get you compensation and benefits that you are entitled to per Maryland workers’ compensation laws. If you have suffered an on the job injury in Maryland please seek medical attention immediately and inform your boss of your injury in writing. Then, please contact our Elkton workers’ compensation lawyers for a free case exam. They charge no fees if they are unable to obtain benefits, compensation and justice for you.
With offices throughout Maryland they serve the Anne Arundel County, Baltimore, Baltimore County, Harford County and Cecil County areas.

Am I entitled to pay if I am injured at work?
Does someone need to be at fault for me to get paid for a work injury?
Can I sue my employer for work injuries?
If my work does not offer ‘light duty’ do I have to go back to work?
If the insurance company denies my work injury claim who pays the medical bills?
Can my employer fire me for not going to work after being injured?
