What do you need to return to work after a workplace accident?

Injured Ohio workers know that returning to work after an injury is not always easy. In fact, it can be quite difficult to recover both physically and financially, and you may need additional help to return to the workforce. In some cases, workers' compensation benefits may help you get specific types of support that could help you get back to work. 

The construction industry's fatal four workplace injuries

The construction industry is one of the most dangerous occupations in Ohio and nationwide, and the fatality rate associated with it is much higher than other industries. Ladders, scaffolding, excavations and electrical components all pose hazards to workers if they are not trained properly or if proper safety precautions are not taken by their employers.

My work accident left me disabled. What are my options?

Suffering injuries from a work accident can be both physically and financial painful. A work accident can impact your life in many ways, but it can be especially difficult when your life will never be the same. Disabling injuries from a workplace accident could make you eligible for certain types of workers' compensation benefits.

Workers' compensation benefits for pre-existing conditions

Workers' compensation provides payment for medical expenses and lost wages to Ohio workers who are injured on the job. Temporary total disability benefits are available to workers who are temporarily unable to return to work and permanent total disability benefits are available to those who are permanently unable to return to work. Workers who, because of their injury, are limited in their ability to work, may be entitled to permanent partial disability benefits. Other wage loss benefits, including vocational rehabilitation and living maintenance are also available to workers who require additional assistance.

Bureau of Workers' Compensation rolls out free wellness program

A previous blog post announced that the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) would be rolling out a new wellness program in early 2018 as part of its plan to focus on wellness and workplace safety. The wellness program is now in effect, providing health and wellness resources to employers with 50 or fewer employees in high-risk industries across Ohio.
