The Ohio System of Workers’ Comp
Workers’ compensation in Ohio operates under a unique system. If you or a loved one has been injured at work, the success of your claim may depend as much on a Cincinnati workers’ compensation lawyer as your physical recovery depends on the medicine prescribed by your doctor.
- Filing your claim. Where the injury occurred is a key issue affecting your claim. It sounds simple enough to say that workers’ compensation is for workplace injuries. But what if you were in a car accident while driving to an offsite meeting? Or, what if a slip-and-fall irritated an old injury?
- Understanding the law. There may be legal limits on the amount of time you can wait before filing a claim. A Cincinnati workers’ compensation lawyer can answer these questions.
- Representation at the hearing. You do not technically need a lawyer at your workers’ compensation hearing, just as you do not technically need a lawyer if you are charged with a felony. However, representation by an experienced workers’ comp attorney can be the difference between immediate success or multiple appeals.
