What is workers’ comp?
Workers’ Compensation is a system that pays you whether you were at fault or not. If you sustained an accidental injury or suffered an occupational disease as the result of your job, you are entitled to lost wages, medical expenses, and a lump sum of money when you reach maximum medical improvement.
All employers have Workers’ Compensation insurance and lawyers protecting their interests. You need a lawyer looking out for you and your family. Workers’ Compensation was originally implemented to take fault out of the workplace disputes between employers and employees. Unfortunately, insurance companies still try to pay you as little as they can to make you go away. You need an attorney to guide you and fight for your rights to maximize your benefits under the Workers’ Compensation Statute.
Why do you need a workers’ comp attorney?
Human resources, adjusters and insurance companies all work for the employer. Their job is to pay you or your medical providers as little as they can to make you go away. The Rules that govern Workers’ Compensation are voluminous and complicated. You need an attorney to help navigate the system and make sure you are receiving the money and benefits you deserve.
Who has your best interests in mind?
Without an experienced workers’ comp attorney working for you, the employer’s insurance company will try to minimize your benefits. An informed and persistent workers’ comp attorney like Mark Korn will work for you so that you can receive the full benefits you are owed.
Mark Korn will also determine if you have a case against a third party. A third-party suit could be filed with an equipment manufacturer or a subcontractor who acted negligently. In this case, you would need someone actively advocating for you in court – and out of court.
Remember, each day that passes without a workers’ comp attorney means you might be missing an opportunity to get the money you are owed. Unless you have an extensive knowledge of Maryland Workers’ Compensation law, you are not able to advocate for your best interests. You might not even have thought of a third party to seek compensation from.
