Fighting back after a denied workers' compensation claim

Did you suffer an injury while at work or become ill due to toxic exposure on the job? You may know that injured Ohio workers have the right to seek benefits through an employers' workers' compensation insurance, but you may not know what to do if your claim comes back denied.

Common transportation and warehouse industry work accidents

Workers in the transportation and warehouse industries face many potential hazards, putting them at an increased risk for workplace accidents. According to the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation, approximately 3,500 employees in the transportation and warehouse industries suffer occupational injuries each year. The primary cause of these injuries is slip and fall accidents, which account for approximately 60 percent of all injuries resulting in eight or more days out of work.

Proposed bill would reform Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation

The largest state-run workers' compensation insurance fund in the country could be reformed per a proposed state bill. An Ohio State Representative recently announced plans to introduce a bill that would change the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation in several ways. The proposed bill would increase workers' compensation benefits for families of workers killed on the job, change benefits for some disabled workers and rebrand the BWC with a new name.

Legal options for miners suffering an on-the-job injury

Coal mining is a dangerous occupation that often results in workplace accidents. The unsafe working environment may lead to serious injuries, both physical and mental. Generally, these accidents are covered by workers' compensation and therefore employers are immune to liability. However, in some states, like Ohio, employers may be held liable when the employee's injury resulted from the employers' intentional actions.

Memorial for Ohio firefighter who improved workers' comp law

An Ohio fire captain recently passed away from an aggressive form of brain cancer called glioblastoma multiforme. He worked for the Beachwood Fire Department and for the Willowick Fire Department for over twenty years. This fire captain leaves behind not only a wife and five children, but also a legacy. He was an advocate for firefighters suffering from occupational diseases and was successful in getting legislation passed earlier this year that provides easier access to compensation.
