Baltimore Workers’ Compensation Benefits Attorneys
Many workers are unaware of the various benefits that are available following a workplace injury. Employers often put their own interests ahead of the employees’ and may be less than forthcoming with information about what is covered under workers’ compensation beyond doctor appointments and lost wages.
If you have been injured on the job, it is important that you seek the advice of an attorney who knows your rights and will fight to protect them. At the law firm of Engel Law Group P.C., we have a complete understanding of the benefits provided to injured workers, and we work tirelessly to see that they receive fair treatment.
Understanding Your Maryland Workers’ Compensation Benefits
The Maryland Workers’ Compensation Act entitles employees to seek specific benefits following a work injury. Whether your employer does not offer them to you or the insurance company denies the claim, our Baltimore workers’ compensation benefits lawyers will pursue every available option in an effort to secure the benefits you deserve.
The following is a brief synopsis of the standard benefits offered under workers’ compensation:
- Medical benefits: These may include doctor appointments, hospitalization, surgery, medication and medical equipment such as crutches or prosthetics.
- Wage reimbursement: In addition to any wage reimbursement you may be entitled to for disability, you can also be reimbursed for time at doctor appointments your employer requested as well as the time you spent traveling to and from these appointments.
- Rehabilitation benefits: If the nature of your work injury will not allow you to return to the job you were previously qualified to perform, you have the right to receive rehabilitation and retraining benefits, including vocational counseling and job placement.
