A St. Mary's County, Maryland, police officer traumatically injured in on the job had his claims challenged by the County, its insurance claims adjuster, and its attorney. The Maryland Workers' Compensation Commission approved of all Temporary Total Disability (lost wages) and medical benefits. The defense attorney appealed the Commission’s Order and Matt Trollinger’s litigation efforts on appeal resulted in a confidential settlement with the County, which included an undisclosed amount of additional money for permanent injury to the police officer.

* Many attorneys, insurance companies, and clients call an incident when someone was injured an “accident.” For this reason, our website uses this word. But an incident is not really an "accident" if there were rules in place to keep us all safe, yet someone chose not to follow those rules — and, as a result, someone else was hurt. When you speak with Trollinger Law, you'll find we talk instead in terms of "crashes," "collisions," etc.
