If you’ve been hurt on the job, the road ahead may look bleak. Unable to work, you and your family could be facing financial hardship with the loss of your regular income, on top of whatever medical bills may be mounting. Luckily, there is a system in place to those who have been hurt on the job–Worker’s Compensation.
Created in 1902, Maryland’s Worker’s Compensation laws require all employers to purchase Worker’s Compensation insurance for their employees. Even if your employer violated the law and did not purchase the required insurance, you are still entitled to collect the benefits as if your employer was fully insured through a state regulated insurance fund.
Unfortunately, without the assistance of aggressive and competent representation, many workers who are hurt on the job are not fully compensated for their losses. Too often, employers try to downplay the extent of the injury, and fail to provide the proper compensation required by law. Without effective counsel, navigating the regulatory minefield that is the Workers’ Compensation Commission can prove hazardous. Call (410) 929-9988 and let Benjamin D. Stirling, Esq. get you the compensation you deserve when you’ve been injured at work.
