What is Workers Compensation?
When you have suffered a back injury, neck injury, or other work injuries that limit your ability to do your job or leave you unable to work, you are faced with legal challenges, in addition to the physical and financial aspects of a work-related injury.
Workers’ compensation benefits can provide much-needed medical benefits and compensation for lost wages.
This coverage provides injured workers with compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, and disability.
Do I Need a Lawyer for a Workers Compensation Case?
The process of obtaining workers’ compensation benefits can be challenging and time-consuming.
Without the help of an experienced Ohio workers’ compensation lawyer, many initial claims for benefits are denied.
We encourage you to seek help from an experienced workers’ compensation attorney as soon as possible. We believe it is important that, as your legal advocates, we become actively engaged in your workers’ comp claim as soon as possible.
This can ensure rules, regulations, and time limits are complied with.
Our law firm can provide experienced help at all stages of your work injury claim in order to ensure you receive proper compensation for your on-the-job injury.
Can You Sue Your Ohio Employer for a Work Injury?
Generally, we will not file a lawsuit against your employer because, legally, it is only allowed under very limited circumstances.
In most cases, if your employer has worker’s compensation insurance, you will not be able to sue them. You will instead go through the worker’s compensation system, which provides fast payment.
Exceptions to this would be if your employer failed to keep a worker’s comp insurance policy.
In some cases, you may be able to bring a third-party claim if another party contributed to your injuries, such as another driver in a car accident, or the manufacturer of a dangerous product that you used on the job.
We are experienced in handling workers’ compensation claims on behalf of disabled and injured workers who have been injured on the job in:
- Construction accidents
- Warehouse accidents
- Manufacturing accidents
- Loading dock accidents
- Work-related car accidents
- Office incidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Other on-the-job accidents
Has The BWC Denied Your Ohio Workers Comp Claim?
If the BWC has denied your claim – whether by citing an alleged preexisting condition, claiming you were injured elsewhere, or any other number of reasons – the decision can be appealed before the Ohio Industrial Commission.
We can ensure evidence, doctors’ records, test results, accident reports, and other vital information is successfully presented to the Industrial Commission in your workers’ compensation appeal.
