Frederick Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Workers' compensation is a no-fault system, meaning if you have been injured on the job, you cannot sue your employer, no matter who was at fault. Your employer, however, must provide workers' compensation benefits to cover your medical bills and lost wages.

Types of Work-Related Injuries

Accidents can range widely in severity and the nature of the incident. Injuries can occur from a single accident that causes abrupt and significant pain. Other trauma can come from a repetitive action or extended exposure. Diagnosed psychological pain from extreme stress or unreasonable conditions can also be considered. It is important to discuss your specific work accident with me so that I can help you seek the benefits that you deserve.

In addition to immediate payments and agreements, some injuries are severe enough to require compensation for a lifetime of medical expenses. In other situations, the individual may be unable to return to his or her previous employment, needing the assistance of vocational service benefits to find new employment. I will assist you in any subsequent matters, such as these, providing knowledgeable perspective on future considerations that must be accounted for during the claims process.

There are also benefits available to family members of individuals who die as a result of an on-the-job injury. As you face the difficult emotional process of grieving, I will carry the legal burden to ensure that surviving loved ones are provided for.
