What Benefits Are Covered Under Workers’ Compensation?

One of Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates’ main functions in handling Maryland workers’ compensations cases is to work in tandem with their employers’ insurance companies to make sure the client receives adequate compensation. We will not simply accept the first offer as a settlement.

Some of the workers compensation benefits you may be entitled to after a work related accident or injury include:

  • Lost wages
  • Authorization for proper medical treatment
  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation benefits
  • Disability compensation for permanent injuries
  • Future medical expenses

Our team handles a full array of Maryland personal injury matters. Thus, we will thoroughly investigate each personal injury case for any additional claims that can be filed. For example, if another person’s negligence, a car accident, or a defective product caused a workplace injury, he or she may also be entitled to additional, third-party, insurance benefits.

Do You Qualify for Workers’ Compensation in Maryland?

In order to obtain workers’ compensation benefits in Maryland, you must sustain an injury or illness in a workplace accident that arose “out of and in the course of employment.” This means that the injury or illness occurred when the employee is at the work site or another location to perform certain job duties.

On the other hand, if you suffer an injury during your morning or evening commute, on your lunch break, or on a voluntary company outing, you may not be eligible for workers’ comp benefits.

If you, a family member, a coworker, or friend have been injured at work or on-the-job, you should contact the Maryland workers’ compensation law firm of Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates and make certain that your rights are protected. There is no charge for a full case review and there is no fee if no recovery.
