Workers' Compensation Attorneys in Columbus, Ohio

At the Law Office of Zamora & Hogan Co., L.P.A., our Ohio worker's compensation lawyers have extensive qualifications that set us apart from other firms in the area. Our attorneys will level the playing field for you, having successfully argued cases before the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation, Industrial Commission of Ohio, Ohio Courts of Common Pleas, Ohio Courts of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of Ohio.

Each year, thousands of workers' comp claims are filed with the Ohio Bureau of Worker's Compensation. These claims may involve lost-time, Medical-only, Occupational disease or Death. Obtaining medical treatment and appropriate types of compensation should be an injured worker’s clear right in Columbus after an industrial accident. Yet, many injured Ohio employees endure delays and denials because their claims are opposed by their employers or by the BWC. At the end of each fiscal year, hundreds of thousands of claims are left open.

Certified Specialist in Ohio Workman's Compensation 

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 up developing emotional distress. Contact an experienced Columbus Workers' Comp lawyer to fight for your rights. 

Attorney Chuck Zamora was one of the first lawyers in the State of Ohio to become a Certified Specialist in the field of workman’s compensation in 1999. Attorney Abbie Hogan is experienced in advocating for injured workers throughout the State of Ohio and has a deep understanding of all the issues at stake in workers’ compensation claims to better help injured workers and their families.

    “Up front and honest”
    Abbie has been nothing but amazing with my workman's comp claim. She is up front and honest about everything regarding my claim. She is down to earth and very approachable. She made sure they approved and paid for everything within my claim. If I ever needed her again I would absolutely choose her. I will also refer others to her as well.

    “Extremely knowledgeable”
    Mr Zamura was extremely knowledgeable with all phases of my Ohio Police and Fire disability claim. He followed up on all aspects and made sure I was informed and up to date with everything going on. He was prompt at returning calls and emails if needed. His application paperwork was done very thoroughly which helped the process go much easier with the OP&F review board. His staff was great also. I would recommend him to anyone looking into a possible disability claim. I am from Akron and he is in Columbus. I only made 2 trips down to see him face to face. Everything else was done electronically or by phone.

    “ALWAYS treated me with kindness, dignity, & respect”
    If I had to go through such a situation with BWC I’m forever grateful it was with these people walking through it together...Charles & his secretary Iesha & Danielle. They ALWAYS treated me with kindness, dignity, & respect. They treated my situation as if it just as important to them as it was to me. They ALWAYS made me feel like I was their only one... trust me they have many & for good reasons. It makes my heart happy knowing there are still hardworking wonderful people out there doing what they do & fighting for the right reasons because they genuinely care. I’ll always feel fortunate to have met them. 🙏❤️🙏
