Workers' Compensation in Ohio

For some workers, a risk of injury is a known hazard of their job. Some workers may not be as at risk for injury as others, but can still be hurt while working. The truth is, injuries can happen at any place of work. The workers’ compensation system is in place to account for this possibility.

Workers’ compensation is an essential resource for people who have been injured on the job and are suffering from the resulting financial effects. For assistance with recovering benefits after an occupational injury, contact the Warren workers’ compensation attorneys of Urban Co., L.P.A. today.

Common Work Injuries

Work injuries can range from catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, to injuries that develop over time, such as repetitive strain injuries. It’s possible that any type of injury could happen at your job, no matter what you do for work.

Some of the most common types of on-the-job injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries

  • Spinal cord injuries

  • Toxic exposure

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive strain injuries

How to File a Workers’ Compensation Claim

After being injured at work, you must report the incident to your employer as soon as possible. Receiving medical care should be your top priority, but once you are safe, reporting your injuries should be your next step. Your employer should advise you on the next steps you must take to file your workers’ compensation claim, or this information could be available in an employee handbook or similar document.

Next, you should hire an attorney to help with your claim. Our team can provide you with valuable advice and guidance backed by our extensive legal knowledge and experience. We will guide you through the process of filing and managing your claim, will negotiate with your employer and their insurance company, and will take on your case in court if necessary.

What to Do if Your Workers’ Compensation Claim is Denied

Workers’ compensation claims can be denied. Sometimes, claims are denied because a worker did not file their claim on time or did not complete a step necessary to successfully complete their claim. In other cases, workers’ compensation claims are denied based on an employer and their insurance company’s assertion that the worker’s injuries were not caused by their work or were not as severe as they said. Additionally, an employer may claim that the worker caused their own injuries by engaging in misconduct, such as by being under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

Regardless of the reason your claim was denied, it can most likely be appealed. Our Warren workers’ compensation lawyers can help you appeal a claim denial. We will fight to get you the benefits you deserve.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits in Ohio

Workers’ compensation benefits are meant to cover the expenses caused by an occupational injury, as well as serve as a source of income for the injured person while they are unable to work. Primarily, workers’ compensation benefits will cover medical bills and lost wages. Benefits may also be provided to cover the peripheral expenses caused by your injury. Workers’ compensation benefits are generally not provided for non-economic benefits such as pain and suffering.
