We Advocate For The Full Benefits You Need
Workers’ compensation offers benefits for employees injured in the workplace, providing financial assistance if they are unable to return to work immediately. At Johnson & Associates, we are skilled in assisting injured workers across Ohio navigate the workers’ compensation claims process.
Workers’ compensation allows you time to recover without further straining yourself. Costs it can cover include:
- Medical bills
- Costs of permanent injuries
- Cost of retraining you, depending on time away from work
- Benefits for surviving family members of employees who suffered a fatal injury
To ensure you receive the care and benefits you are entitled to, report your injury immediately and consult a lawyer about the incident. The process to submit a claim can become complicated if your employer refutes that your injury occurred at work, if your claim is denied or if you cannot receive the appropriate medical attention for your injuries.
Evaluating Your Options
In evaluating your case and determining the options available to you, our attorneys will:
- Protect your rights
- Investigate the cause of the accident
- Determine whether your employer is following workers’ comp laws
- Assist in getting you the medical care you need
- Ensure your claim is managed efficiently
In Ohio, once you file a claim for workers’ compensation, you waive your right to sue your employer. This also includes the right of your surviving family members to sue if your workplace injury becomes fatal.
Workers’ comp claims offer a suitable alternative for obtaining compensation without going to court. However, in rare circumstances such as employer intentional tort, it may be to the benefit of an employee to file a lawsuit. We will aggressively represent your interests and hold your employer accountable, regardless of the circumstances.
