What time limits apply in workers’ compensation cases in Maryland?

Video Transcription:

In Maryland, if you’re injured on a job, you have 10 days to report that injury to your employer. You, thereafter, have 60 days to file a claim with the Maryland Workers Compensation Commission. If you don’t file your claim within 60 days, the employer would have to show prejudice in order to have your claim dismissed. Nevertheless, you have two years to file the claim. If you don’t file within two years, then your claim would be completely barred and you would not be entitled any benefits thereafter.

If you’ve been injured on the job, the first thing that you must do is report the injury to your employer. If you don’t report the injury to your employer, that may cause you problems down the road. But just because you report the injury to your employer doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to follow what they claim or proceed with that claim. In the event that you do need to follow-up and file a claim to seek either lost wages or medical treatment, it is important that you’ve reported that claim to your employer so that they’re aware of it and they wont contest it later on.
