Worker's Compensation Claims
Representing Injured Workers In Owings Mills And Surrounding Areas
If you’ve been injured at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for your lost wages, medical treatment and permanency awards for some amount of loss of use of a particular body part. However, obtaining these benefits can often be a struggle.At the Law Office of Joel E. Segall in Owings Mills, our attorney helps injured workers throughout the Baltimore metropolitan area get the benefits they need to treat their injuries, pay their bills and continue supporting their families.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Work injuries happen. Sometimes they are caused by accidents, other times by occupational disease or repetitive motions. No matter what the cause of your on-the-job injury, you are entitled to workers’ comp benefits, including:
- Medical benefits — You may see any doctor of your choice. As long as your initial workers’ comp claim has been accepted, all of your medical treatment causally related to the accident will be covered. Your employer also must reimburse you for wages lost due to time spent receiving medical treatment or driving to and from such treatments.
- Temporary disability benefits — If your injuries prevent you from performing your job duties, or limit your performance, you are entitled to temporary disability. These benefits reimburse you for a portion of your lost wages while you are recovering from your injuries.
- Permanent disability benefits — If your injury leaves you totally or partially disabled, you are entitled to permanent disability benefits, including wage replacement on a sliding scale according to the severity of your permanent disability.
