Who decides my entitlement to receive workers’ compensation benefits in Maryland?
In Maryland, when you file a claim, if the claim is contested by the insurance company, that case will be set for hearing before the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission. The Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission is the entity which will determine whether or not your claim is compensable and will determine whether or not you receive benefits and what those benefits will be. The insurance company does not make those decisions. Ultimately it’s the decision of the commission.
