An Injured Worker Is Often Most Concerned About The Money
In addition to pain, lost wages, medical bills and other worries can keep an injured worker up all night. These concerns are legitimate and loom large on any injured worker’s mind.
Ohio’s workers’ compensation system was established to help workers like you get medical care and financial assistance while healing from your workplace injury. But what good is a system that you know nothing about or are afraid to use for fear of losing your job? You can get answers to your questions and the assistance you need by speaking with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. At Todd Miller Law LLC, I’ve been assisting Ohio’s workforce for more than 25 years.
I’m here to guide you along the path, negotiate for you and protect your rights to medical care and monetary compensation for your injury. I help injured workers in every aspect of workers’ compensation.
Most Workers Want To Get Back On The Job ASAP
While many workers want to get back to work as soon as possible, many are unable. Catastrophic injuries or grave illness can mean not returning to the work and lifestyle a worker enjoyed before the accident or onset of the illness. What then?
In Ohio, the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) provides coverage for illnesses and employment-related injuries for workers in private and public sector jobs as well as for self-insured companies. Upon approval of an application, workers become eligible to receive:
- Weekly wage replacement
- Payment for medical expenses
- Permanent partial or total disability payments
- Compensation for permanent disfigurement or injuries
If your loved one died due to an accident at work, you might qualify to file for death benefits. There are strict time limits, so it is best to initiate a claim as soon as possible. Not all claims are approved and there may be other obstacles to receiving the compensation you deserve. Call my law firm to discuss your situation.
