Timonium Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
Fighting for Injured Workers’ Right to Benefits
For over 30 years, the Timonium Workers’ Compensation lawyers at LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton have been dedicated to helping injured workers from all types of industries obtain the Workers’ Compensation benefits to which they are entitled. Our goal is to recover the maximum compensation for medical expenses, wage loss benefits, and death benefits for every case we handle. Examples of injured workers we represent include:
- Commercial drivers
- Construction workers
- Healthcare workers
- Office workers
- Public safety workers
- Restaurant and kitchen workers
- Shipyard workers
- Warehouse and factory workers
It is important to understand that while all Maryland employers are required to carry Workers’ Compensation insurance, not all workers are eligible and not every injury is covered. Moreover, because it is the insurance company’s job to limit benefits, it is unlikely that a claims adjuster will be forthcoming with information that is helpful to the injured worker. Workers can significantly improve their chance of being approved for benefits by hiring a qualified Workers’ Compensation lawyer.
Injuries that May Entitle a Worker to Benefits
Workers’ Compensation benefits are available to covered employees who have sustained an injury while performing the tasks of their job. Some injuries are the result of a workplace accident, such as those stemming from a work-related motor vehicle accident or an accident involving heavy equipment. Others injuries develop over time, such as those caused by repetitive stress on muscles, joints, and ligaments. The law also protects employees diagnosed with an occupational illness caused by exposure to toxic chemicals and other environmental hazards.
The total amount of a Workers’ Compensation award depends largely on the nature and extent of the injury or health condition. For this reason, it is critical that workers seek prompt medical attention for any work-related injury or illness. This will help to ensure that the condition is properly assessed and documented early on in the process. Fortunately, Maryland Workers’ Compensation law allows injured workers to choose their own doctor for treatment rather than a doctor that works for the insurance company. This is important because it avoids any bias that can have a negative impact on the claim.
Our Timonium Workers’ Compensation lawyers have the skills and the resources to build a case that demonstrates the true extent of our clients’ injuries. Additionally, we work with life-management professionals to ensure an accurate estimate of the future cost of the injury so that clients can feel secure in knowing that their needs will be taken care of, now, and in the future. We have helped individuals recover maximum compensation for all types of injuries, including:
- Back and neck injuries
- Brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Exposure to toxic substances, including asbestos
- Eye injuries
- Hand injuries
- Mental injuries
- Occupational illnesses
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Scars and disfigurement
How a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Can Help
Few laypeople are familiar enough with the complexities of Workers’ Compensation law to handle their own claims. As a result, many people will turn to their employer for answers. This can be a costly mistake. Most employers are not proficient in Workers’ Compensation law and as a result, will defer to the recommendations given by their insurance company. This is not in the worker’s best interest, as the primary goal of the insurance company is to limit workers’ claim to benefits as much as possible.
At LeViness, Tolzman & Hamilton, we work to minimize the level of stress so that our clients can focus on what is really important – their recovery. We help people avoid missed deadlines and paperwork mistakes that can cause their claim to be denied. We also advise workers on their rights as well as the proper steps to take after being injured on the job.
