Dayton Warehouse Accident Injury Lawyers
If you have been injured while working in a warehouse, you may be entitled to claim workers' compensation benefits. These benefits can compensate you for your medical costs, rehabilitation therapy and a portion of your wage loss. However, Ohio's workers' compensation system wants to keep its claim costs low. Without an attorney on your side, you may not get the benefits you are entitled to receive.
Hochman & Plunkett is a team of lawyers with more than 150 years of combined experience representing injured people. We provide vigorous, results-oriented representation for injured workers, seeking the best possible result for every client.
We represent warehouse workers who have suffered injuries caused by:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Trip-and-fall accidents
- Falling merchandise
- Forklift accidents
- Vehicle accidents at loading docks
- Other types of warehouse accidents
Forklift accidents comprise a high percentage of warehouse accidents. Nine out of 10 of these are caused by uncertified forklift drivers or other safety violations. Under Ohio law, the employer becomes strictly liable for the accident, making it easier to obtain additional monetary compensation. If you have been injured in a forklift accident, Hochman & Plunkett will undertake an aggressive litigation effort, seeking to maximize the workers' compensation benefits and additional compensation you are entitled to.
Do You Have A Third-Party Claim?
If your injury was caused by a third-party, such as an equipment supplier or someone who is not employed by your company, you may have a third-party claim in addition to your workers' compensation claim. This can enable you to receive additional compensation beyond the benefits you receive from the workers' compensation system.
Our warehouse accident injury attorneys can represent you in both cases, seeking to maximize the total compensation you receive from all sources.
