Were You Injured On the Job? Get Legal Help With Workers' Compensation.
Except under very unusual circumstances, every employee working for an employer in Ohio is covered under workers' compensation insurance. Workers' compensation insurance is administered by the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC). If you can demonstrate that your injury happened as a result of an accident or occurrence related to performing your job, you should be eligible to receive a certain scope of benefits. This is true even if your employer does not carry the required workers' compensation insurance or if your employer goes bankrupt. The state operates a special fund to cover you for your medical expenses and lost earnings.
You Must Demonstrate That You Were Injured On the Job
In order to receive workers' compensation benefits, you will have the burden of proving that your injury occurred on the job or at a location associated with the performance of your job duties. Unfortunately, too many injured workers become frustrated by the requirements for medical treatment, reporting and application process.
Although the notification and application process should be fairly straightforward, employers often throw up roadblocks that make the process confusing and frustrating. The independent law firms associated with OhioBWCAttorneys.com want you to know this: If you have been injured at work, or if you are the surviving family member of a worker who died as a result of a workplace accident, you may be eligible for benefits. In addition, you may be eligible for additional personal injury compensation from a third party who can be held liable for the accident.
