Workers' CompensationWhen you have been injured while working on the job, or job site, regardless of whose fault it was, you may be entitled to compensation under Ohio law. Your employer is required to carry Workers' Compensation insurance and should give you all proper information you need in order to file a claim. However, it is often a more difficult process then one realizes.

Workers' Compensation is designed to cover your medical expenses, wage loss and other related damages in the event of a work related injury or illness, regardless of who is at fault.

The process of filing a Workers' Compensation claim is complicated. Employers and their representatives will make decisions based on their own interests; at times to your detriment.

Workplace injuries and illnesses come in many forms:

  • Hazardous conditions
  • Occupational diseases
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Defective machinery and other "third party" claims
  • Work related auto accidents

We will assist you through all stages of the Workers' Compensation process.

Our office has more than 25 years of experience and has handled hundreds of workers' compensation matters. Our office is familiar with the system and will work efficiently and aggressively towards getting your claim allowed and the compensation you need.

We do not charge for an initial consultation. We work on a contingency basis. If you don't receive compensation for your injuries, then neither do we. To set up your free initial consultation, please fill out our online form or call us at (216) 658-7046 today!

It is our goal to treat your issues with the proper attention they require.
