Columbus Workers Compensation Appeal Process
In the state of Ohio, if any party involved in a workers' compensation claim disagrees with the outcome, that party can file an appeal. The appeal typically must be filed within 14 days of the initial order, according to the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation.
Appeals may be filed online directly with the Industrial Commission of Ohio; or an IC-12 form may be filed in person or by fax.
The appeal for workers' compensation in Ohio includes:
- the name of the injured worker and his or her employer
- the claim number
- the date of the workers' compensation order
- explanation of why the order is being contested
Next, the Industrial Commission of Ohio conducts a hearing, where both parties have the chance to present evidence. The parties involved later receive written notice of the final decision. Additional appeals may be available before the Industrial Commission or to the Ohio Courts.
Representing Victims in the OH Appeals Process
Our Columbus workers' comp appeals lawyer can help you represent you at your hearing and aggressively argue your case on your behalf. Companies (especially major corporations) tend to have access to some of the best defense attorneys when it comes to handling disputes such as these.
It is the job of these lawyers to do everything possible to twist the facts around and make you appear undeserving of compensation. For this reason, it is important for you to have strong legal representation of your own.
It may be necessary to provide additional medical documentation that more clearly proves the extent and costs of treating your injury. Or, it might be necessary to provide additional evidence that establishes how your injury was caused. We can help gather that type of evidence and clearly present it at your hearing.
