Why do I need a Columbus, OH construction injury attorney?
Things can get complicated if you’ve been injured in a construction accident. Your employer may try to claim that your injuries aren’t job-related, or that they were pre-existing. Insurance companies may dispute the seriousness of your injuries. Your claim for workers’ compensation benefits may be denied, and you may have to appeal the decision to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.
Our attorneys can help you explore every option for covering your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. We can help you navigate the workers’ compensation claims process every step of the way. If a third party’s negligence was responsible for causing the accident that left you hurt, we can investigate and build a strong case for financial compensation that insurance companies have to take seriously.
