The Loss Of Your Limb Is Also The Loss Of Life As You Know It
No one wants to imagine losing a limb. Unfortunately, this is the reality for some workplace accident victims. Your hands, feet, arms and leg are vital to your job, maintaining your quality of life and doing the things you love.

Maryland’s Workers’ Compensation Claims Process
When you suffer an injury at work, you must immediately notify your employer and seek medical attention. After you give proper notification, you can file a claim online at the Workers’ Compensation Commission (WCC) website. You must complete and file the form within two years of your accident. Once filed, the official claim form will be sent to the commission within 10 days of filing. Claims are generally processed quickly, taking about a week between filing and receiving a claim number.
Filing your claim will also send a notice to your employer and their insurer, allowing them to raise any objections. The commission will consider your claim and either issue an award or put the case in line for a hearing due to any contested issues. Your employer’s insurance company pays your benefits immediately or after the hearing.
We Will Seek The Compensation You Need To Move Forward
Medical expenses related to an amputation can last the rest of your life. You deserve compensation to help you through those next steps as you adjust to your new normal. The workers’ compensation attorneys at Maronick Law LLC will fight for you.
