What Will Portner & Shure Do for My Workers’ Compensation Claim?

Our experienced Frederick workers’ compensation attorneys will diligently guide your claim throughout the workers’ compensation process. After you contact our office, we can quickly determine if your injuries entitle you to immediate temporary total benefits for your lost income or wages. In most cases, individuals injured on the job receive these benefits.

Our attorneys can file your workers’ compensation claim as quickly as possible. By doing so, any costs related to the medical care you receive for your injury will be paid for by the workers’ compensation insurance carrier. Once you reach maximum medical improvement (MMI), our attorneys will file a claim for payment disability and recover damages for you.

Your award is based on:

  • Body part injured
  • Percentage of the body part that is permanently injured
  • Your average weekly wage

The statute favors the injured worker as long as all of the strict code requirements are followed. We will ensure that you meet all of the code requirements, including the necessary deadlines.

After you finish treatment for your injury, we will negotiate your claim or have it heard by the Workers’ Compensation Commission (WCC). At Portner & Shure, we routinely argue and win before the WCC on issues concerning unpaid temporary total benefits, “causal connection,” and permanent disability benefits. We are prepared to go before the Commission and fight for what you deserve.

As a testament to our success, we have countless five-star reviews, excellent past results, national recognition, and exceptional ratings. Our firm has obtained some of the largest work injury awards available under the statute!
