Generally, workers’ comp benefits include a percentage of your wages, as well as medical benefits. Additional compensation and vocational rehabilitation may be available for workers with permanent disabling injuries. If your injury was the fault of a negligent third party, you may be able to collect additional compensation from a separate personal injury suit.

Workers’ comp benefits may be granted for traumatic injuries, repetitive stress injuries and other occupational diseases. Benefits are also available for certain stress-related claims, including PTSD.
In Maryland, injured workers are entitled to:
- Medical treatment — Workers’ comp pays for the cost of medical care for the injury, including surgery, doctors’ appointments, medications, medical equipment and prostheses.
- Wage-loss benefits — Injured workers receive a percentage of their average weekly wage, subject to state caps.
- Permanent disability benefits — Workers who suffer certain permanent injuries may receive compensation.
- Vocational rehabilitation — Workers who cannot return to their previous jobs may receive vocational training. This may include job training and job placement assistance.
Surviving spouses and children may be entitled to death benefits if they lose a family member to a fatal work injury.
Compensation for pain and suffering is not available in workers’ comp benefits. However, if we file a separate suit against a negligent third party, we can seek damages for pain and suffering.
