Am I Eligible For a VSSR Claim?

When it comes to workers' compensation, an injured Ohio worker may be able to obtain different types of awards. Depending on your circumstances, your compensation may include a punitive VSSR award related to your employer's failure to follow certain safety rules.

VSSR stands for violation of a specific safety requirement. If you believe you may qualify for a VSSR award, talk to a lawyer familiar with these types of claims. It is important to maximize the benefits you receive.
