Do You Know Your Rights as an Injured Worker?
If you are injured on the job, you are entitled under Maryland law to medical treatment and compensation for any lost wages and lasting injury. Employers and their workers' compensation insurers are not always friendly to your rights and your best interests. They want to limit your claims and get you back to work as soon as possible.
At the Law Office of David D. Nowak, LLC , you have experienced and caring advocates who are committed to securing your full benefits and standing up for your rights. Located in Towson, our firm represents injured workers in Baltimore City, Baltimore County and surrounding communities of northern Maryland. Contact us today for a free consultation.
Don't be confused about your rights. If your employer gives you a claim number after you report an injury or accident, that does not mean that you have filed a claim with the Maryland Workers' Compensation Commission (WCC). You probably have only an insurance claim number. We can help you file your actual workers' comp claim to ensure full and timely benefits and preservation of your rights.

Attorney David Nowak has represented me on legal issues involving wills, power of attorney, living wills, and a Workman's Compensation case for a hearing loss. I could not be happier with his work and representation. My hearing loss case was lengthy and ultimately I was provided hearing aids and compensation. I could not have expected better attorney representation. My wife and I agree that if we need an attorney in the future, we are calling David. W. B.
