If you have recently sustained an injury at the workplace, you may be eligible to recover workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation is used to support a worker financially after they have been injured in an accident. However, in some cases, a third party may be responsible for a work accident. Continue reading and contact our Howard County workers’ compensation attorney to learn more about work injuries and workers’ compensation claims in Maryland. Here are some questions you may have:
What should I know about workers’ compensation after work injuries in MD?
Workers’ compensation benefits provide support to cover lost wages, medical bills, and a percentage of your paycheck until you are able to return to work. Workers’ compensation claims will go through insurance, allowing employees to take legal action without having to directly sue their employer, which may leave them without a job. However, a claim can be denied or the compensation may be unsatisfactory. This is why it is important to reach out to an experienced attorney who can help you recover the compensation you deserve. If you can prove that you were injured on the job, you should be eligible for workers’ compensation. Give our firm a call today to learn how our team can assist you in achieving workers’ compensation benefits.
What other parties may be held liable after a work injury?
If you believe that your work injury was caused by another party’s negligence, you may have a valid third-party claim. For example, if the manufacturer or designer of the equipment you were using at the time of your accident were at fault, or if the property owner where you work acted negligently, you may be able to file a third-party lawsuit. It is important to be prepared and to understand that most third-party lawsuits require a comprehensive investigation to seek all responsible parties and prove their negligence. Give our firm a call today for assistance with a third-party lawsuit.
