Frederick Workplace Accident Lawyer

It is the responsibility of your employer to make sure that major injuries, such as broken bones, disease, dangerous injuries or death, are reported to the Workers' Compensation Commission. Beware: that does not protect you, the worker. You must file your own Employee's Claim in order to protect yourself and in order to be eligible to receive a full complement of benefits.

Workplace accidents, work injuries and occupational diseases often include:

  • Construction accidents
  • Farming and agricultural accidents
  • Inhalation of dust, fumes, poisons and noxious gases
  • Explosions and fires
  • Slips-and-falls

  • Heaving lifting injuries
  • Commercial and other employment-related driving accidents
  • Cuts, burns and disfigurements

I am also prepared to represent fire fighters and public safety officers seek benefits in specific programs where heart and lung injuries and disabilities are presumed to have been caused by their job or occupation.

Work-related accidents are generally covered exclusively by workers' compensation. However, many times a third party other than the employer or employee may be at fault, such as a contractor, another company or product manufacturer. In these cases, I help clients recover damages in a third-party claim.

As your lawyer, I will carefully evaluate your situation and determine what needs to be done to build a successful workers' compensation claim. If you have been denied and are seeking to appeal, I can help you understand what we must do to strengthen your claim, including seeking out medical opinions.

I will provide an honest and understandable perspective on where your claim stands, as well as the options available to you. You can be assured that I will stand by your side throughout the duration of the claims and appeals process.
