Helping Employees Recover Workers’ Compensation
When you are injured or suffer an illness at work or while engaged in a work-related activity, regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred in connection with your job, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. You are entitled to workers’ comp benefits even if your employer was not at fault or did not act negligently.
At the Law Offices of Bou & Bou, in Bethesda, our attorneys have been helping workers recover compensation benefits for more than 50 years. To schedule a free initial consultation with our lawyer, call office.

Waiving Your Right To Workers’ Compensation
The acceptance of workers’ comp benefits limits your right to other remedies against a negligent employer. Personal injury claims can account for a wide range of damages, such as pain and suffering, whereas a workers’ compensation claim cannot. We can analyze whether you should waive your workers’ comp claim and pursue damages for negligence in civil court, and whether you may be able to seek additional damages from a negligent third party.
Workers’ Comp Appeals
If your initial claim is denied, you have a limited amount of time to appeal the decision. We can help guide you through the complex bureaucratic process of your appeal.
