Columbus Workers' Compensation and Disability Retirement Attorneys
Certified Specialist in Ohio Workman's Comp
Each year, thousands of worker's comp claims are filed with the Ohio Bureau of Worker's Compensation; these claims may be involving the following:
- occupation disease
Obtaining medical treatment and appropriate types of compensation should be an injured worker's clear right after an industrial accident. Yet, many injured Ohio employees endure delays and denials because their claims for benefits are opposed by their employers or by the BWC. At the end of each fiscal year, hundreds of thousands of claims are left open.
All too often, obvious industrial injuries are worsened due to denials of necessary medical treatment or opposition to diagnostic testing. Workers are given unnecessary periods of extended time off work, sometimes unpaid, and end of developing emotional distress.
