What is the process for filing a workers’ compensation claim in Maryland?
In Maryland, if your injured on the job, it’s very important to file a claim with the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission to protect your interest in the future. Once you’ve filed a claim, the employer has 30 days to contest the claim. If they contest the claim, a hearing would be scheduled before the commission. The commission would determine whether or not your claim is compensable. The insurer does not have to contest the claim, in which case they would automatically start benefits and pay for your medical treatment.
