Recovering Benefits for Work-Related Injuries
If you were injured at work or diagnosed with an occupational injury or illness, you should not have to pay for your medical care. You should also be entitled to benefits to cover lost wages if you are unable to work. Under workers’ compensation, you are entitled to medical and financial benefits regardless of fault. You can pursue these benefits without having to prove negligence or wrongdoing on the part of your employer or another party – if your injury is work-related.
Serving Rockville and the surrounding communities, Ashcraft & Gerel represents injured workers and their families in workers’ compensation claims and appeals. You deserve to receive financial assistance while you recover from your on-the-job injury, but recovering fair benefits may be easier said than done. Many claims are denied or delayed, and it may take an attorney to push your claim through to a fair result.
