Workers’ Compensation in Ohio
There are a few unique aspects of how workers’ compensation claims are handled in the state of Ohio. Workers’ compensation is a state-funded system governed by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC). We also have self-insured employers in Ohio, which means it is up to the employers to follow the state’s rules. This can make filing a workers’ compensation claim challenging for an injured worker. Often, injured employees do not receive the full extent of benefits to which they are entitled, and the responsibility to pursue these benefits lies with the injured and their legal counsel.
Our legal team is experienced in handling workers’ compensation claims for many different types of employees, including construction workers, manufacturing workers, production workers, office workers, health care employees, restaurant workers and many more.
You may be entitled to additional compensation through a personal injury claim if your workplace injury:
- Was caused by a negligent third party
- Was caused by a defective product
- Resulted from your employer putting you in a known dangerous situation
