A claim for workers' compensation benefits is not always open-and-shut. Also, while you cannot bring a lawsuit against your employer, other entities may be fair game if they caused or contributed to your workplace accident. You should work with an experienced local attorney to make sure you are fully compensated.
At The Palumbo Law Group, we can enforce your rights as a worker and pursue any third-party claims for serious or permanent injuries on the job.
EXPLORING ALL SOURCES OF COMPENSATION
Maryland workers' comp provides free medical coverage and wage loss benefits if you were injured in a work-related capacity. However, there are many limitations such as which doctors you can see, and the employer's insurance company may try to downplay your disability or terminate your benefits.
Under Maryland law, you cannot sue an employer or co-worker for negligence, but you are entitled to take legal action against third parties outside the chain of employment. Our experienced work accident attorney can analyze the circumstances of your injury and identify any potential third-party components. For example, you might have a viable claim against a manufacturer, a property owner, a subcontractor or another motorist.
Palumbo Law Group has handled all types of work injury cases, including:
- Construction site accidents
- Falls from ladders or scaffolding
- Machinery and equipment accidents
- Cranes and heavy equipment
- On-duty vehicle accidents
- Occupational exposure
- Electrical shock injury
A third-party lawsuit may cover damages not available under workers' comp, such as projected earnings or compensation for pain and suffering. We are committed to maximizing your compensation for the personal and economic impact of a workplace injury. Trial lawyer Daniel Palumbo has the proven ability to stand up to insurance companies and large corporations in pursuit of justice, with many favorable jury verdicts in 30 years of practice.
