Were you a recent victim of a workplace accident? Are you unable to return to work as the result of your injuries?
If you find yourself in this position, you should not hesitate to file a workers’ compensation claim. By taking this step, you hope to receive compensation in the near future.
Unfortunately, something else may happen: You may find that your claim has been denied.
Your health and well-being should always be front in center in your mind, so make sure you take care of this above all else. However, sooner rather than later, you also need to learn more about your legal rights.
The first thing you should do after a workers’ compensation denial is learn more about why this happened. You can review your denial letter for a better idea of why you are unable to receive benefits at this time.
From there, you need to take action. At our law firm, we have many years experience helping people collect workers’ compensation benefits after a denial. This may sound impossible to you, but we know what it takes to help you fight back against the system.
In some cases, all you need to do is provide additional information in order for your workers’ compensation claim to be approved. However, there are also situations in which a case has to go in front of the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission for a hearing.
If you were injured on the job, you may be in position to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Learn more about your legal rights to ensure that you obtain the compensation you deserve.
