Filing for Workers Compensation in Maryland When Your Case Is In DC
Most People Don't Know this but workers comp laws and benefits are completely different in DC, Maryland and Virginia - so it matters where you file your workers comp claim if you've had a serious injury on the job. I talked to a union rep the other day who didn't realize he had made a mistake with his own workers comp case (one that could cost him $ 400+ every single week - that is over $20,0000 in tax free income over just one year).
You see, try as we do to spread the word on the workers comp systems in DC, Maryland and Virginia - through our guides, reports, union letters and especially our definitive book on DC Workers Comp, now in it's 3rd edition - some people still don't know the financial damage they are doing to themselves and their families by filing their workers comp case in the wrong jurisdiction.
Take The First Critical Right Steps To A Successful Workers Comp Case in Washington, DC
After a serious injury, you're focused on rehab and getting better, maybe you just had surgery or will need it soon, maybe you're on pain killers and other medications so you're not as sharp as you usually are, maybe you have a good friend or relative who has been through this and tells you what you should do, or maybe the insurance adjuster calls and tells you she is ready to send you a benefits check and authorize all of your medical treatment as soon as you sign and return the forms she sends you.
That all sounds great. But you could be making a critical error if you do this without speaking to us.
Don't File Your DC Workers Comp Claim Without Talking To Us.
Because here's what could happen to you and your family...Even though your injury was in DC or most of your work was in DC, she sends you Maryland claim forms. You don't think much of it because, after all, you live in Maryland and your company is based there, so what's the difference?
Over $400 dollars every single week, tax free. You see, that's the difference between the maximum workers comp benefit rates between DC and Maryland. And the killer is, once you've filed and accepted benefits in another state, you can't come back and file in DC - you're stuck losing over $400 every single week.
