Required Documentation for Initial Consultation

Worker's Compensation benefits provide workers with various benefits after a work-related injury.  These benefits include temporary total disability benefits while the worker is unable to work, prescription, mileage and health aide reimbursement and payment of medical fees and costs. 


The worker receives these benefits until he/she has been released from their doctor and are able to return to work.  Thereafter, the worker, depending upon the injury, is entitled to payment for whatever permanent injury may exist as a result of the accident.

Important things to remember include the following: 

  • The worker must immediately notify the employer of the injury and file a claim form with the Workers' Compensation Commission with a specified period of time or lose all rights to any benefits. 

  • In addition, the worker has the absolute right to choose his/her own doctor.  Workers' compensation provide benefits for sudden accidental injuries and occupational diseases. 

  • There are also additional benefits for workers injured on the job and that suffer from other prior injuries and ailments as well.  These benefits come from the Subsequent Injury Fund. 

  • Finally, additional benefits may arise when a work related injury is had in connection with a third-party injury claim as well. 


Workers' compensation can be confusing, thus, you should always consult with an attorney.  Worker's compensation claims require no up front attorneys fees.  We handle workers' compensation claims  in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
