OHIO WORKERS COMP. LAWYERS

The Ohio workers compensation system is somewhat more complicated than many other states. For example, it's administered by two separate agencies: the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation and the Ohio Industrial Commission. An employee who has been injured on the job or has developed an occupational disease due to job conditions must file a workers compensation claim.

Three Types of Workers Compensation Claims

In fact, there are three types of workers compensation claims in Ohio, for:

    •    an injury

    •    an occupational disease

    •    a worker who was killed on the job

In Ohio, it is the employee's responsibility — not the employer's — to file the claim, and the employee (or his dependents/family) must make sure that the claim has been filed and received. If you have filed an Ohio Workers Compensation claim, you should receive a claim number from the Bureau. If you haven't gotten a claim number, check with the Bureau to make sure that the claim was filed properly.

Ohio Workers Compensation Benefits

Ohio's workers compensation law provides for several types of benefits:

    •    medical benefits

    •    temporary total compensation

    •    wage loss compensation

    •    permanent partial compensation

    •    permanent total compensation

    •    an award for an employer's violation of the specific safety requirement

The workers compensation benefits also differ depending on when the incident on which the claim is based occurred — before 1990 and from 1990 onward. In light of the complexity of the Ohio Workers compensation system, it's a good idea to schedule a free consultation with an Ohio workers compensation attorney.
