Workers' Compensation Process In Ohio
Pursuing workers' compensation benefits is an issue that few injured workers can afford to fail at. Not only do those workers need the coverage of medical bills, there may be families that are counting on the compensation and benefits that can help a household remain above water financially.
Statute Of Limitations Issues
There are serious statute of limitations issues in the workers' compensation system. Failing to meet necessary deadlines can leave you with no benefits, no compensation and no recourse for appealing an adverse decision. While there is a two-year statute of limitations regarding the filing of a claim after being injured at work, as a practical reality, no hearing officer will believe your claim if you wait to file.
Further, the paperwork the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) provides is very boilerplate. It can be difficult for workers to determine whether the decision in their case helps them or hurts them. You may need to appeal within 14 days and not even be aware that the clock is ticking.
Securing the assistance of a skilled workers' compensation attorney can help ensure that you are doing everything you need to be doing when you need to be doing it. The workers' compensation process is difficult to navigate for those who are unfamiliar with it. Let us help you.
