Hearing loss in the workplace and your right to compensation

Ohio workers know that when they suffer an injury in the workplace they have the right to seek compensation through their employer's workers' compensation insurance. However, this right also applies to those who suffer injuries and damage from their work over a long period of time. An example of this is work-related hearing loss.

Post-stroke conditions could make you eligible for disablity

A stroke is a serious medical occurrence that often happens with little to no warning, leaving victims with serious side effects that could impact the rest of their lives. Ohio victims experience stroke in different ways, and no two cases are the same. If you went through a stroke, it is possible that you may find you are unable to work as you did before it happened.

Temporary workers at risk when poorly trained

You may have many reasons for working as a temporary employee. Maybe you are looking for permanent work but supplementing through an Ohio temp agency. These agencies typically match you with jobs that fit your skill set although they may place you in an unfamiliar position if you show aptitude and a willingness to learn.

What is your employer supposed to do in workers' comp claims?

Your employer may give you a laundry list of things that you are supposed to do if you suffer an on-the-job injury. You have to meet reporting requirements, see the right doctors and fill out the right paperwork. You agree to do these things because you need the benefits.

Financial support for victims of multiple sclerosis

Are you a victim of the autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis? This disease is potentially disabling, and you may find that you are unable to hold gainful employment or work enough hours to support yourself and your Ohio family. If you find yourself in this situation, you could be eligible for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration.

When temperatures rise, so should the emphasis on heat safety

Summer can be a difficult season for workers who must be outdoors or who work in facilities that are not temperature controlled. When the temperatures increase, it can lead to an increased chance of a worker contracting a heat-related illness. However, with certain preventative measures and adequate training, it is possible to prevent some heat illnesses and keep Ohio workers safe.

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.

Silica dust exposure can lead to long-term health problems

Some jobs come with certain risks, and the men and women employed in these positions know that they may face a higher chance of suffering an injury. However, few Ohio workers may consider the risk involved with dangerous exposure to toxic and dangerous substances. For some, the consequences of this may not be evident until years, even decades later.

Cumulative trauma injuries can affect your health and career

If you suffer injuries in a workplace accident, you may be aware of the fact that you have a rightful claim to workers' compensation benefits. However, you may be less sure of your rights and options if you are currently suffering from the impact of a cumulative trauma injury that is the result of your job.
