How to Know if You Need a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
- The employer denies you were injured on the job.
- The carrier has denied benefits.
- You cannot get medical treatment.
- You are not getting paid.
- The adjustor promises benefits or care which never arrives.
- An attorney for the employer or insurance company contacts you and wants to take a deposition.
- You need to sue a third person. You begin to represent yourself and you encounter someone on the other side who is particularly difficult and is trying to take advantage of your lack of legal expertise.
The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation will always attempt to deny or lower the amount it must pay on all compensation claims. As such, it is difficult to get fair compensation on your own. A qualified workers’ compensation attorney experienced in the claim process with access to significant resources will protect your rights to full and fair compensation.
Our Firm’s Goal is to Maximize Benefits For the Injured Worker
Workers’ compensation is designed to protect workers and their dependents against the hardships from injury or death that happen in the work place. It is intended to benefit the employee and employer alike. The employee receives money (usually on a weekly or biweekly basis) and medical benefits in exchange for forfeiting the common law right to sue the employer. The employer benefits by receiving immunity from court actions against them by the employee in exchange for accepting liability that is limited and determined. The question of negligence or fault is usually not an issue. However, the laws are complex, and many times benefits are short-handed or denied completely. Our law firm protects the rights of workers and makes sure they are getting the maximum amount of benefits they are entitled to.
