Do I Have To Pay Any Of My Medical Bills For A Work-Related Injury In Maryland?

No. The employer, and/or their insurance company are responsible for these costs.



No. If you're hurt at work, your medical expenses are the responsibility of your employer or their insurance company. That's a lifetime benefit, so long as there is medical evidence, as ratified by the Workers' Compensation Commission, that you're experiencing a health condition that's related to a workers' compensation event. Even if that event is remote, you're entitled to have that insurance company or that employer pay for your medical treatment, in theory, for the rest of your life.

I hope this addressed your question. Over the course of 25 years, I've found that fully addressing a legal question is best handled in a one-on-one, in person strategy and case analysis conference. I offer these to potential clients on a complimentary basis. Please use any of the methods under the contact tab at the top of the page to arrange yours.
