Injuries that occur during the course of your normal job duties require quick action to help you back to health and avoid a personal financial crisis. The workers’ compensation system is designed to give employees the ability to collect reimbursement promptly for lost wages, medical bills and other expenses occasioned by a job-related accident or illness. Unfortunately, the system does not always work as intended, so skillful legal guidance may be required to collect the benefits you are entitled to. Holzman & Associates, L.L.C. assists injured workers throughout the Baltimore area in all types of workers’ compensation claims and appeals, including cases relating to lifting injuries, industrial accidents, vehicle collisions and repetitive-stress conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome.
Serving Maryland clients since 1966, we offer knowledgeable guidance on the workers’ compensation process, including:
In a free initial consultation, we’ll go over how your claim might proceed and will advise if you might be able to file a personal injury claim against another individual or business whose negligence contributed to your injury.
Sometimes, meritorious workers’ compensation claims are denied. An employer or insurance company might question whether the injury occurred in the course of employment. In other situations, they might not agree with the medical diagnosis or treatment. When the insurer denies your claim, you have 30 days to file an appeal with the Workers’ Compensation Commission. Our lawyers will collect the necessary evidence for the appeal and advocate for you during the hearing before a commissioner. If the denial is not reversed, a request for a rehearing needs to be submitted within 15 days of the decision. After that, the next step is entering a Notice of Appeal with the relevant Circuit Court.
