One of the most common questions that I get is in regards to the necessity of a Maryland workers compensation attorney if workers comp is seemingly cooperative. You may believe you are receiving everything to which you are entitled but this should be determined by a qualified workers compensation attorney. The incentive for workers comp or the insurer to pay for medical treatment is to keep the injured worker satisfied so they do not retain a comp attorney and seek ALL of the benefits the law provides. The theory is to keep the injured worker somewhat satisfied and hope that they go away without obtaining full benefits. It is imperative to remember that the adjuster has a job and marching orders. The marching orders do not include providing all the benefits to the injured employee, furthermore some adjusters receives wage increases and bonuses for saving money at the expense of the injured worker. A Maryland workers compensation attorney can help prevent this.
It is quite difficult for workers compensation Insurers to avoid paying for health benefits if the claim is legitimate and the employee is compliant. Maryland workers compensation laws are very favorable to the injured worker regarding medical treatment. Insurance companies recognize this and often pay for medical treatment because inevitably they will have to pay for the treatment. Rather than upsetting the employee and leading them to hire a Maryland workers compensation attorney the medical benefits are paid. In order to get the full protection and benefits under Maryland law one must be represented! The insurance companies can, and will, terminate medical benefits as they see fit and disregard what the law provides for the injured worker.
There are other benefits that the insurance company does not want you to have and that you will most likely not receive without an attorney. See All of your workers comp benefits
