Workplace Injuries and Illnesses
If you suffer a job-related injury or illness, you should be able to expect that you will get the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. Unfortunately, when it comes time to file a claim, many employees find it very difficult to collect the full value of benefits they may be entitled to under the law.
At Timothy A. Dachille & Associates we understand the obstacles injured workers often face when they file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. For over 20, our law firm has been helping our clients receive the workers’ compensation benefits they need to cover their medical care, lost wages and other bills and expenses. Our lawyers understand how the workers’ compensation system in Maryland and Washington D.C. operates and we will fight to ensure that you get the maximum benefits you are entitled to under the law.
Guiding Clients Through the Workers’ Compensation System
A workplace accident or job-related illness can be a life-changing event for employees and their families. Our Attorneys appreciate just how complicated the process can be for injured workers. When you are in pain and suffering, it can be very hard to figure out what you need to do to collect the compensation you deserve.
Our lawyers also know that the Workers’ Compensation Laws in Maryland and Washington D.C. set strict time limits that you must meet in order to preserve your right to receive compensation. If you fail to take the appropriate steps within these strict time limitations, you may be unable to collect the benefits you may need to pay for your medical care and make up for your lost wages.
Having assisted injured workers for decades, our firm also knows that the getting appropriate medical attention in a timely manner is critical when you are hurt on the job. Our team will work with you to ensure that you have access to the right doctors and specialists so that you can get the medical evaluations needed to support your claim. Our objective is to make sure that you receive the care and treatments you need to recover and get back on the job.
Exploring the Viability of Third-Party Claims
In some situations, we find that injured workers may be able to assert legal claims against third parties in addition to collecting workers’ compensation benefits. For example, if you are injured by a defective piece of equipment, the manufacturer of the equipment may be held liable for your injuries. When you meet with our team, we will carefully review the circumstances of your case to determine whether you may have any viable third-party claims in addition to your workers’ compensation claim.
