The Ohio Bureau Of Workers' Compensation (Ohio Bwc)
The workers' compensation system in Ohio is governed by the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (Ohio BWC). If you were injured at work, you have likely visited its website or solicited similar information elsewhere. There is no real way to prepare you for the many challenges and uncertainties you might face, including:
- Filling out paperwork: The workers' compensation claims process requires all paperwork be filled with accurate information and be filed in a timely manner with the appropriate agencies. Our firm has seen many clients who have experienced significant delays due to incorrect filings, which we will not let happen.
- Valuing your claim: Your employer and the Bureau of Workers' Compensation want to minimize the value of your claim. Our attorneys are experienced at maximizing our clients' compensation so they are not left short of funds to pay for medical bills and other costs.
- Lump sum vs. monthly payments: Depending on your situation, you may be able to choose between a lump-sum settlement and ongoing monthly payments. As your attorney, we will advise on what is best for your situation.
- Obtaining medical proof: One of the biggest challenges is obtaining the medical proof necessary to qualify for benefits. Our years of experience have taught us what evidence will be sufficient to help our clients obtain maximum compensation.
- Denied claims: What if your claim is denied? Appealing a workers' compensation claim in Ohio can be complex and confusing to anyone not familiar with the process, and you do not want to lose out on your benefits because you were unprepared.
Our attorneys are adept at resolving issues quickly and preventing unforeseen complications from arising. We want each client we serve to be focused on his or her recovery, while we work hard to obtain all of the benefits to which he or she is entitled.
