Any work-related injury that will keep you off the job for a significant period can create extreme hardship for you and your family. Workers' compensation benefits are very likely available to pay for your medical treatment, replace a portion of your lost income and cover certain other expenses. However, navigating the Ohio workers' compensation system effectively can be an intimidating challenge.
The more serious your injuries, the more important it is to consult a highly experienced Ohio workers' compensation attorney soon after the accident. It is common for people injured at work to run into unjust claim denials and difficulty getting the care and benefits they deserve for reasons they do not understand.
