Trust our workers' compensation attorneys to guide you in the right direction.
What Benefits Are You Entitled To?
Under Maryland Workers' Compensation Law, you are entitled to benefits after you've been hurt on the job. Trust our experts to help you understand all the different compensation options that are available.
Some claimants may receive temporary total disability benefits, which are calculated as 2/3 of your salary at the time of injury. You may also be entitled to temporary partial disability if you return to work while you are still receiving treatment and are unable to work full time. After your treatment is complete, you may be entitled to permanent partial disability if you have an impairment resulting from the injury. Finally, if your injury results in complete permanent disability, you may be entitled to permanent total disability benefits.
If you're no longer able to perform your pre-injury employment, you may be entitled to vocational rehabilitation. This can involve receiving payments, such as temporary total disability, while you are attempting to return to the workforce.
