Workers' Compensation Q & A

What steps should I follow if I'm injured at work?

If you're injured at work, you should notify your employer and seek treatment promptly. If you believe your injury or illness qualifies for workers' compensation, you may file a claim with the Workers' Compensation Commission. Full and part-time employees in the state of Maryland qualify for workers' compensation insurance, but not all workplace injuries qualify for workers' compensation. 

Which injuries qualify for workers' compensation?

According to the Maryland statute, only accidental personal injuries and occupational illnesses that arise "out of and in the course of employment" qualify for workers' compensation. This means that your injury or illness must occur because of your specific work conditions. 

Some common injuries that might qualify for workers’ comp include:

  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Back pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

If you're eligible for workers’ compensation, your employer's insurance must pay for all doctor bills, hospital bills, prescriptions, and other necessary expenses related to your injury. You may also be entitled to income replacement benefits if you miss more than three days of work. 

The team at Arundel Medical Group works with workers’ comp cases on a regular basis. Which health care services at Arundel Medical Group does workers’ compensation insurance cover?
