Fighting For Injured Workers' Rights To Compensation

Work-related injuries can cause you to suffer severe physical pain and financial losses. After a work injury, it can be difficult to know where to turn to obtain the honest answers and help that you and your family need.

At the Law Office of James E. Farmer, LLC, our attorneys guide injured and disabled workers through these difficult times by helping them obtain workers' compensation benefits. If your injury occurred on the job, our lawyers can help you file a workers' compensation claim. It doesn't matter whether you suffered a back injury or developed a repetitive stress injury (RSI) like carpal tunnel syndrome. If it happened at work, it should be covered by workers' compensation.

Standing Up For Injured Workers

What happens if you are injured so badly that you cannot work? How will you pay your rent or mortgage? Who will you pay the medical bills? How will you put food on the table? These are just some of the questions that you may have as you face this difficult and uncertain time.

We routinely represent employees who suffer work-related injuries, including:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Electrocution and burn injuries
  • Muscle strains and broken bones
  • Auto accidents
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals and substances

Injured workers in Maryland are entitled to receive two-thirds of their average weekly wages and have their medical expenses paid.

Your Legal Advocates After A Work Injury

Despite your injuries and valid claim to workers' compensation benefits, your employer's workers' compensation insurance company may do everything it can to avoid paying what you are entitled by law to receive. Our attorneys will stand up for your rights and fight to recover the maximum benefit amount to which you are entitled.

If you were receiving workers' comp but the check wasn't in the right amount or the benefits were wrongfully terminated, please contact us to discuss your situation. We will deal with the bureaucracy so you can focus on healing.

If an on-the-job injury resulted in a permanent disability, we can negotiate a lump sum settlement of your workers' comp claim.
