First Responder Workers Compensation Claims in Ohio
Delivering Skilled Guidance at All Stages of the Process
When disasters or emergencies strike, first responders are on the scene to ensure those involved in the incident get the care and attention they need. And while these heroic individuals are trained and ready to jump into action, the situations they face put them at risk of serious on-the-job injuries. The medical expenses incurred from the harm they suffered can often be steep, and because it was a work-related injury, they might turn to workers' compensation to help cover the costs. Unfortunately, the claims process is complex and difficult to navigate, especially when a first responder is trying to recover from their injuries. In some cases, a workers' comp claim may not be honored at all.

Fighting to Protect Injured First Responders
First responders include EMTs, firefighters, ambulance drivers, police officers, paramedics, and others who help in emergencies. They are often called to dangerous and hazardous situations, such as car accidents, fires, and natural disasters.
Providing necessary assistance requires them to navigate these perils, which puts them at risk of various types of injuries, including, but not limited to:
- Broken bones
- Respiratory injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
Some injuries might be noticeable immediately, while others may reveal themselves over time. Either way, when a first responder sustains harm because of their job, they have the right to file a claim and seek compensation.
Unfortunately, some employers or even the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation may deny a claim, asserting that an injury did not result from the individuals' course of employment. That's why it's necessary to have an attorney help prepare the filing or appeal the denial. A lawyer familiar with workers' comp laws will know what it takes to make a compelling case for deserved benefits.
At the Law Office of Charles Zamora Co., L.P.A., our Columbus workers' compensation attorneys will review all information relevant to your situation and will collect/submit all necessary paperwork to ensure your claim is filed successfully. If you are denied benefits, we'll aggressively argue on your behalf to work toward obtaining just compensation. We have presented numerous cases before the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation, and we know how to deliver persuasive arguments.
