Personal injury claims usually involve bodily injury that results from trauma, caused by an accident involving motor vehicles, machinery, a fall on another person's property, or even medical malpractice. In a claim for personal injury, you must show that the injury was caused by the negligence of another person, and that you were not guilty of any negligence that contributed to the injury.  This can sometimes be difficult to prove, and insurance companies will spare no expense in trying to defeat your claim. The insurance company will have lawyers working for them.  You need an experienced lawyer on your side.  We offer a free consultation, and handle all personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis.  We only get paid if we are successful in getting you a recovery.  Call us, we can help.

In the State of Maryland every employer is required by law to provide Workers' Compensation insurance coverage for its employees.  By law, if you sustain an accidental injury arising out of and in the course of your employment, you are entitled to certain benefits, including a percentage of your average weekly wage while recuperating, payment of medical and prescription bills, a disability award if you have a permanent partial or total disability as a result of your injury, and vocational rehabilitation services if you are unable to return to your previous type of work as a result of your injury.  Unlike a personal injury claim, entitlement to workers' compensation benefits does not depend on you having to show another's negligence.  Proving fault is not required and you may even be entitled to benefits if your own actions contribute to the injury.  If you are hurt at work you should first report the injury to your employer, seek immediate medical care,  and then call us.  You have only limited time to file a claim and you should never assume that your employer or the insurance company has filed a claim for you.
