Workers' Compensation

In most cases, if you are injured on the job in Maryland, you most likely have a valid workers' compensation claim. Your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier may seek to deny coverage by arguing that you were, in fact, an independent contractor rather than an employee. Alternatively, the insurer may insist that you waited too long to file a claim. The insurance company may assert that your injury was caused or exacerbated by a pre-existing condition.

On the other hand, the workers' compensation carrier may accept your claim for compensation to cover medical bills and replace lost wages — but then proceed to put up roadblocks. For example, the insurer may insist that you see a doctor chosen for you, rather than letting you work with your own doctor. A physician selected by the insurer may assert that you are ready to go back to work before you feel well enough to do so.

Whatever challenges or obstacles you face as you seek compensation following a workplace injury, an attorney of McGowan & Cecil, LLC, is available to advise and represent you. Beware another pitfall: the worker's compensation claim may proceed without incident, but when you are ready to go back to work, you may learn that your job has been eliminated. You may have an employment law case against your employer for wrongful termination in such a case.
