Standing Up For Injured Workers
If you have been injured on the job then you need an attorney with experience who can help you get the medical care and wages you need while you recover.
While you may think your employer will take care of you, it is important to know that its insurance company is not looking out for your best interests. At the KMA Law Office, we are. Call us now for your free consultation at our Severna Park office.
If you have been hurt on the job, or in a job-related activity, you most likely qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. Maryland has workers’ compensation rules to handle claims from employees who suffer on-the job injuries. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer at the KMA Law Office can answer all of your questions and let you know what your rights are as an employee.
Understanding Workers’ Compensation Claims In Maryland
The workers’ compensation system is in place to ensure that injured workers receive the compensation they deserve following a workplace injury in a timely fashion. Maryland workers’ comp cases are governed by strict guidelines and time frames that must be followed.
Attorney Karen M. Authement handles workers’ compensation injury claims and other personal injury claims. She can answer questions and handle all aspects of your claim, including:
- Obtaining medical treatment authorization from the employer’s insurance carrier
- Helping you get medical care from the doctor you chose — not the doctor the insurance company prefers
- Fighting for your rights regarding permanency awards and your degree of disability
- Your appeal in the event your work injury claim is denied
Handling your claim against a third party in the event a party other than your employer (like a contractor or subcontractor) was responsible for your injuries
