The MD Workers’ Comp Calculator is only approximate.
Various factors can cause your calculator result to be too high.
- The days missed from work was too high
- The value submitted on the pain scale was too high
- Your injury falls outside of the scope of the calculator
- The award obtained or estimated by your attorney was/is too low
The best way to get the amount of your workers’ compensation benefits is, of course, to go through the process with the Workers’ Compensation Commission. The next best way is to speak directly with a qualified attorney.
Having a good workers’ compensation attorney is the best way to get your benefits. The compensation for time missed from work does not vary much. However, the amount you receive for the injury over time, varies greatly. A good workers’ comp attorney is the best way to ensure a higher amount.
