Annapolis, Maryland Lawyer Representing Back and Neck Injury Victims
When you break a leg, lose an eye, or suffer another type of injury at work, there is no disputing the fact that you have suffered an injury worthy of workers' compensation benefits. Other injuries are harder to prove as workplace injuries. Knee, shoulder, back and neck injuries often develop over time. The question for a workers' compensation claim is to what extent a soft-tissue injury is compensable under Maryland law.
Schedule a consultation with a Maryland workers' compensation attorney to discuss your knee, shoulder, back or neck injury that happened suddenly or over the course of your employment. Contact Schifanelli & Associates, LLC today by phone or e-mail.
If you miss work for a day or two because of a sore back, that is generally not enough to qualify you for workers' compensation benefits. However, if you are unable to work for several days, a week, or even longer because of a bad knee or shoulder that is attributable to activities at work, there is a problem and you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits including the following:
- Medical expenses paid
- Wage replacement
- Vocational rehabilitation if you can no longer do your job because of your injury
Is a lack of health insurance holding you back from getting the medical evaluation and treatment that you need for your back, neck, shoulder or knee injury? Our law firm can help you find workers' compensation healthcare providers. In Maryland, you have the right to choose your own medical provider after a compensable injury.
It will work to your advantage to talk to a workers' compensation lawyer first, or after notifying your employer of the accident or disease. If you talk to them first, they are likely to schedule an appointment for you to see a doctor of their choosing. What you say or do can greatly affect the final outcome of your workers' compensation case. Your interests will be protected best if you receive counsel and representation from an experienced lawyer such as Marc Schifanelli first.
