A: Consider hiring an attorney. We work on a contingency fee basis so there is no money out of pocket until money is recovered. The law requires the workers compensation insurer to pay you 2/3 of your lost wages for days missed from work. The first 3 days of absence are not paid unless you miss two weeks total. Good luck!

This is according to Maryland workers compensation law and you should confirm it is a Maryland case and not a Pennsylvania case.

This should be consider informational only and not legal advice. A client to attorney relationship only exists after an in person meeting and signature of agreement paperwork takes place.
