What if my SSD benefits are up for review?

When an Ohio resident is injured, ill or suffers from a medical condition and seeks Social Security disability benefits, being approved is an undeniable relief. These benefits are useful to make ends meet and to get the medical care necessary. However, there will be continuing disability reviews to ensure the person should continue getting SSD benefits. It can be concerning to have a disability review, but it does not mean the benefits will stop.

Does workers' compensation allow for appeals with medical care?

Ohio workers who are injured on the job and need medical treatment will use their workers' compensation benefits to receive it. Medical expenses and lost wages are covered under workers' compensation. If there are no disputes regarding the injuries and the employer or insurer approves the workers' compensation benefits, there should be no problem. The proper treatment is imperative to the worker getting back to full health and, if possible, getting back on the job.

Do you know the causes behind most car accidents?

A car accident can change your life in an instant. One moment you may be driving to pick up dinner, and the next you may be sitting in a damaged vehicle after another Ohio driver crashed into you. In fact, you may not be sure exactly what happened or what you should do next. It's not easy to pick up the pieces and move forward after an auto collision.

Worker in Ohio suffers second-degree chemical burn on-the-job

It is important to remember that not all injuries in the workplace involve heavy machinery or repetitive stress injuries. For example, a workplace accident occurred at the Addipel resin pellits facility in Elyria, Ohio, in which a worker suffered burn injuries following a chemical mixing incident. Workers were mixing several chemicals, including crodamide, akawax-c powder, cellcom-obsh and vicrom. The chemical mixture reacted, causing the worker to be burned.

Suffering heat illness in the work environment

With the summer heat setting in, many residents in Ohio are enjoying the warm weather. While it is typically ideal weather to spend time at the beach, it is not always ideal for workers when they spend eight plus hours outdoors in the heat. Spending long periods of time in the heat can be dangerous for workers, causing heat stress. This could ultimately lead to injuries or illnesses requiring medical treatment for the worker.
