An Injured Worker Hurt in DC is losing hundreds of dollars every week - Don't Let this Happen to You.
Imagine your frustration. You are a high wage earner, earning over $2,000 per week, in salary, overtime, and bonuses. But an on the job injury means you can't work. You were hurt in D.C. but you live in Maryland and your company is in Maryland.
So, you try to do the right thing.
You've never been hurt before, you like your company, and you've certainly never sued anyone before...
You listen to the insurance company and you sign the paperwork and forms they send you so they can file the forms with "workers comp" and get your benefits going and your medical treatment paid for. They send you Maryland workers comp claim forms, which kind of makes sense, doesn't it? After all, every state has workers comp benefits.
You see, insurance adjusters have handled hundreds or many times thousands of workers comp cases. And they know the differences in the benefit rates between D.C., Maryland and Virginia. The maximum comp rate in D.C. is several hundred dollars higher than the max rate in Maryland or Virginia.
And at your income level, you're at the max rate.
So if your case should be in D.C. but there is any connection to Maryland or Virginia, where will the insurance company file those claim forms for you? (Hint: it won't be in a place where they have to pay you more).
So don't let them do it.
