Why would someone need an attorney to file a workers’ compensation claim?
The process of filling out a claim is often said to be simple. Plus, if the injury actually occurred because of work, surely the process will be quick and the insurance company will accept your claim, right? This is not necessarily true, unfortunately, and you may be dealing with a long, drawn-out process or a denied claim. This means ending up paying out-of-pocket for medical bills or losing money because you are unable to work. Our Maryland on-the-job injury attorney wants to help make this process quicker.
What are the steps for filing a workers’ compensation claim?
There are a few steps you should always take when filing a claim. These are:
- Notification. Tell your employer as soon as you can that you were injured while conducting work for the company. This means before going to the hospital, if possible, or soon after you have gone to the hospital. Once you notify your employer, it is their responsibility to speak with their insurance company to file a notice of injury.
- Medical Care. If you even have the slightest concern about an injury, you need to seek medical attention immediately. Minor soreness in your neck could turn into whiplash or a minor bruise may be internal bleeding,
- Keep Everything. Any expenses you have, receipts or invoices for medical bills, or time off work should be written down. You will want compensation for anything you pay for relating to your injury so that you can get full compensation back.
