Have You Been Injured on the Job? We Can Help

Nearly three in every 100 people are injured on the job each year in the United States. If you’re one of them, you understand that the aftermath is stressful – from dealing with pain or mobility challenges to figuring out what to do regarding workers’ compensation.

Fortunately, you don’t need to go through that process alone. Our expert team of medical providers at Arundel Medical Group, Inc., located in Glen Burnie, Maryland, treats injuries and assists with paperwork to help ensure you’re compensated fully under Maryland law.

If you’ve been injured on the job, read on to learn just how we can help.

Types of workplace injuries

Most any kind of injury can affect you at work, depending on factors like the type of vocation you have and the environment you work in. That includes acute, or sudden, injuries and chronic injuries, which develop over time. 

Some of the most common workplace injuries include:

You can also develop chronic pain from your job. Frequently lifting heavy objects at work, for example, can lead to lasting back pain. Mental health challenges, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are linked to workplace injuries and scenarios.

How to seek workers’ compensation

If you’re injured at work, your first step involves notifying your employer and seeking prompt treatment. If you believe you qualify for workers’ compensation, file a claim with the Workers' Compensation Commission.

Our team at Arundel Medical Group can conduct an exam, recommend any needed treatment, and guide you through the paperwork for the compensation you’re due.

If you are eligible for workers’ compensation, your employer's insurance is required to pay for your medical bills, including exams and prescriptions. You might also be entitled to income replacement if you miss more than three days of work or become disabled because of your injury. 

Treatment for your workplace injury

Whether you’re eligible for workers’ compensation or not, our team can help restore your health and well-being by treating your injury. Depending on the specifics of your injury and overall health, your plan may include:

While one treatment may suffice, many people benefit from two or more. You may wear a brace or splint on your injured wrist, for example, and take pain medication initially. Then, once you’ve achieved a particular amount of healing, we may recommend adding physical therapy.
