Workplace Accidents

Work-Accidents

Under Ohio law, if you are injured at your place of work, you could be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. This benefit is designed to cover an injured employee's lost wages as well as the costs associated with medical care and rehabilitation. Regardless of the type of injury, I can help with your claim.

In addition, Ohio law recognizes the right of employees to sue their own company, even when they are receiving workers’ compensation. An employer can be held liable in situations including:

  • Failing to screen other workers who may have violent tendencies;
  • Removal of safety guards from dangerous machinery;
  • Establishing production requirements that are likely to result in serious injury.

I often receive calls from people who have had their workers' compensation claims denied. If this has happened to you, call me. I will:

  1. Conduct a thorough interview with you to understand your situation.
  2. Research the company in question. I look for previous complaints or other instances where the organization may have committed similar violations.
  3. Consult with highly regarded medical experts to gain an objective assessment of the long-term implications of the injury.

When I have a clear sense of your case, I will advise you on your options. This detailed approach has led to success in many cases, including slip and fall accidents, injuries from heavy lifting, electrocutions and injuries caused by removing or disabling automatic safety devices. The decision to pursue the case or not is always up to you.

Call me today to learn more about your rights. I collect no attorneys' fees unless and until you recover on your claim, whether by settlement or by jury verdict. I commit substantial resources to investigate your case, hire expert witnesses, and cover other necessary expenses. If we win, I recover these expenditures. If not, you owe me nothing.
