Different Types of Work Injury Cases
Every workplace can be the site of a work accident. Whether you work in an office, a construction site, a kitchen, or even your own home, accidents can happen, oftentimes without warning. What’s important is that you are backed up by workers’ compensation benefits if they do.
We can help clients who have suffered from all sorts of workplace injuries and incidents, such as:
- Back injuries
- Head injuries
- Repetitive strain injuries (RSI)
- Burn injuries
- Electrocution injuries
- Occupational illnesses
- Unsafe chemical exposure
- Work-related auto accidents
Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you need help regarding if you get workers’ compensation because your injury is unusual. Sometimes, employers will misinform their workers and say that their injury doesn’t qualify for workers’ comp. Don’t take their word for it! Call (301) 265-2220 and we’ll see if they are right or if they were being insincere to protect their profits from higher insurance premiums.
Benefits You Might Be Owed
As an injured worker, you might collect these workers’ comp benefits and more:
- No-cost medical treatments: 100% of the medical treatments needed to cure or alleviate your injury after a work-related accident should be covered through workers’ compensation. Even small fees like co-pays and the gas money you spent to get to an appointment should be covered.
- Disability pay if you can’t return to work: If you are too injured to return to work within a few days or a week, then you might be eligible for disability pay. Usually, you can earn roughly 67% of your average weekly pre-injury wages until you can work again.
- Vocational rehabilitation: You might be provided free training, certification, and education courses to learn how to begin a new career that accommodates your injuries and disabilities. This is true even if your new job is in an entirely different company or industry.
What happens if you caused your workplace accident? Does that mean you don’t get any benefits because you messed up? No! Don’t let your employer or an insurer tell you this, either.
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance system. It doesn’t factor in liability, so you don’t lose your benefits even if you are 100% liable for what happened. The only exceptions are if you intentionally tried to get hurt or engaged in an egregiously dangerous action against your employer’s wishes or instructions.

You might even have as little as 30 days after your workplace accident or injury to report it to your employer. This time will fly by quickly, so don’t hesitate to contact our team of Upper Marlboro workers’ compensation lawyers.

Could not have asked for a better group of attorneys to handle our legal problem
We could not have asked for a better group of attorneys to handle our legal problem. James Farmer and Melvin Allen were very knowledgeable, confident and successful in handling our case. I will definitely be referring this Law Firm to others.”
A wise choice for anyone pursuing legal justice and/or a defense
Mr. Farmer and his team were impressive through their work effort and detailed approach in every phase the Civil Court Personal Injury case. They also were responsive to any questions/concerns, supportive and communicated well through out the process. In the end, a satisfactory settlement was achieved. Mr. Farmer would be a wise choice for anyone pursuing legal justice and/or a defense.”
The staff at the office was very friendly and professional.
“I would highly recommend this attorney to anyone who is in need of an attorney.”
Kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable
“I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from this law firm. I felt comfortable from the minute I first walked through the door. I had less than two weeks before the expiration of my personal injury filing date and was overwhelmed. My first appointment was with Elizabeth who took my huge stack of papers with a smile and said, “Let me take care of this for you.” Although all of the staff that I encountered were wonderful, my main experience was with Mr. Farmer and Elizabeth who were both kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable. My case was handled professionally and in a timely fashion. My case was recently concluded and I am very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family in the future. Need a good law firm, no need to look further.”
