Get The Workers’ Compensation Benefits You Deserve
Suffering an occupational illness or workplace injury frequently takes a person away from his or her job in Maryland. Most workers know that the workers’ compensation system is set up to cover lost wages and medical bills for on-the-job injuries. Unfortunately, employers and the insurance companies often look for ways to keep their expenses low, at the expense of injured workers.
UNDERSTANDING ALL OF YOUR LEGAL OPTIONS AFTER A WORKPLACE ACCIDENT
The legal team at Lonnie M. Greenblatt, Attorney at Law, in Rockville and Frederick are well-prepared to help you get the compensation and workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. Our personal injury lawyers work tirelessly to maximize benefits for our clients. While an employee generally cannot sue their own employer for a workplace injury, many industrial and construction site accident victims may be able to pursue claims against other entities after an accident in what is called a third-party claim.
Our full-service injury lawyers know how to cover all the bases, pursuing optimal results in the workers’ compensation system, and investigating other potential sources of compensation to obtain the full and fair compensation our clients need to maintain their dignity and financial stability.
The range of possible industrial or construction site accidents is vast, including:
- Slip-and-fall accidents related to hazardous conditions or carelessly placed materials
- Falls from ladders, scaffolding or heights
- Impact from falling objects at a construction site
- Forklift accidents and other vehicle or heavy equipment accidents
- Product liability claims involving defective machinery or tools
