INJURED AT WORK AND NOW YOU’RE WORRIED ABOUT BEING FIRED
It’s bad enough when you get hurt at work through no fault of your own. A workers’ compensation claim can mean medical treatment in the form of emergency room visits, MRIs, CT scans, broken bones, torn ligaments, or damaged nerves. It can mean weeks or months of physical therapy, chiropractic care, nerve conduction studies, diagnostic studies, and visits to the orthopedist, neurologist, internist, primary care doctor, or even surgery. It can also mean having to be retrained, through vocational rehabilitation services, if you can’t go back to work at the same job you used to do. Finally, your pain and suffering means you are entitled to permanent partial disability benefits. But the workers’ compensation process is complicated, and getting your benefits needs trained and experienced attorneys to fight for your rights. Call a law firm for your free consultation to discuss your on the job injury and how they can help. You only have 60 days to give notice and only two years to file a claim, so do not wait to get the help and benefits you need.
As bad as going through the workers compensation commission process can be if you don’t have the right lawyer and legal team, being wrongfully terminated on top of getting hurt at work may seem like too much to bear. Law firms handle all illegal terminations from work, including claims filed with the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), the MCCR (Maryland Commission on Civil Rights), OAH (office of administrative hearings) for wrongful termination, disability, requests for reasonable accommodation, FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act), racial discrimination, age discrimination, sex discrimination, sexual harassment, ethnic discrimination, national origin discrimination, or for being fired for filing a workers compensation claim. Law firms have taken on large companies and their insurance companies (and even sued insurance companies that had defamed clients). You only have 180 to 300 days to file a claim depending on where you file, and other important deadlines apply to suing your employer for firing you. Call an employment lawyer in Towson, MD, such as from Seigel & Rouhana, for your free consultation on your employment discrimination claim.
