Workman’s Comp Lawyer Serving Upper Marlboro
Injury at work can result in weeks or months of lost pay. In order to help you meet your living expenses while you are unable to work full time, the state has instituted a robust Workers Compensation program. To access the program, however, you must be diligent in taking the right steps to prove that you were injured on the job and that personal negligence was not the cause.
Workplace injuries and accidents can happen very suddenly, and it is often the case that no one was at fault. However, companies often discourage the filing of Workers Compensation claims in order to avoid safety inspections under relevant OSHA laws. To overcome this and file a successful claim, there are several steps you should take as soon as you are injured.
First of all, it is very important that you file an incident report under the guidelines specified by your employer. The incident report procedures that an employer has specified are legally binding and provide critical evidence in the event of court proceedings. Companies will often recourse to the initial incident report as an “end all, be all” statement of the events of the case.
If your injury requires hospitalization and you are not able to file a report immediately, you should write down or dictate the events you remember as soon as you can. It is also a good idea to contact a MD work comp attorney at this phase, since the law firm can intercede to communicate with your supervisors, insurance companies, and others. The firm can also help collect evidence that will help you.
