Should You Get A Lawyer For A Work Injury?

Workers' compensation claims are complex. They involve all sorts of legal issues, including the interpretation of insurance policies, medical malpractice issues, and the intricacies of an employer's liability with respect to its employee.

If you undertake the claims process on your own, you may quickly find that you need a lawyer to get the compensation you deserve, even when you know you're entitled to compensation. 

With the workers' comp claims process, getting a settlement from an insurance company following a work injury may not be an issue. However, insurance companies are always looking for ways to save money on claims. If they see that a work accident lawyer does not represent you, they are unlikely to offer the maximum settlement value.

If you hire a law firm to represent you, insurance companies are more likely to offer competitive offers up-front. More importantly, your attorney will know if the settlement offer is fair and, in the case it isn't, they will be able to negotiate a better compensation on your behalf.

Can You Sue An Employer For A Workplace Injury?

If you've been hurt on the job, you may be wondering whether you have the option to file a lawsuit against your employer. In most cases, employers are protected from being sued by employees after a work injury. This is due to the fact that employers are generally obligated to pay for workers comp' insurance to cover injuries suffered by employees. 

Yet, there are some cases where an employee can sue their employer following a work injury. For example, if an employer did not purchase workers' comp insurance for their employees, an employee may file a lawsuit against them seeking compensation for damages.

There are other cases where an employee can sue their employer. If you're unsure of your avenues for compensation after a work accident, contact our team now for a free case review.

Common Causes Of Work Injuries In Maryland

Some of the most common causes of work accident include:

  • Slips, trips, or falls (unsafe environment/workplace conditions)
  • Inadequate training
  • Illness
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Poor workplace ergonomics
  • Toxic substances and materials
  • Equipment failure

What Kinds of Injuries Does A Work Injury Lawyer Handle?

  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Bone fractures & ligament sprains or tears
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Nerve damage
  • TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries)
  • Whiplash

How Long Do I Have To File A Work Injury Claim In Maryland?

Employees have a limited amount of time to file a work injury claim following an accident. In Maryland, employees who are injured on the job have three years from the date of injury to file a claim. Claims filed past this 3-year deadline are likely to be dismissed right away.

How Much Should You Settle For Work Injury?

Compensation for a work injury can be more complicated than one might think, given the fact that numerous factors must be considered. Some of these factors include:

  • The age and type of the worker
  • The circumstances under which the injury was sustained
  • The extent of the injury
  • The procedures performed in treating the injuries and their effects
  • Any additional damages that may be due.

When you are injured at work, a lawyer who takes the time to review your case carefully will likely negotiate for fair compensation. The amount of compensation will depend on a host of factors, for example, whether you are able to prove fault on your employer's part or if there is a liability concerning negligence. There is no typical work accident settlement amount because many variables come into play.

Additionally, some intangible damages merit compensation but may not be concretely calculated. For instance, what type of compensation should be awarded for permanent disability? What about pain and suffering? Only an experienced work injury lawyer can sit down with you, review the facts of your case, and explain what will be most important for your case.
