Workers' Compensation And Safety Violations In Ohio
Workers' compensation is a program that pays benefits to workers who suffer a job-related injury or illness, regardless of fault. However, you may also be entitled to additional compensation if the injury occurred as a result of the employer's violation of a specific safety requirement (VSSR).
Our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case. If your employer violated OSHA safety standards, that can be good evidence at a VSSR hearing. Our lawyers will use our skill and experience to fight for the maximum compensation for injuries caused by employer and co-worker negligence.
