Ohio Workers’ Compensation laws exist to help workers who suffer an injury, occupational disease or death in the course and scope of their employment. Claims are initially filed with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation or the self-insured employer.
Injured workers are entitled to multiple benefits; payment of temporary total compensation, wage loss compensation, permanent partial disability, permanent and total disability, scheduled loss awards, Violation of Specific Safety Requirements, medical treatment, therapy, diagnostic testing and surgery if necessary.
The process can involve hearings before the Industrial Commission of Ohio and even litigation. Don’t fight this battle alone. A. James Tsangeos will be happy to discuss your claim at a free consultation.
