Workplace Injuries

If you live in Ohio and are suffering from an injury caused on the job, call us. 

While workers'  compensation benefits can cover some of your lost wages and medical expenses, they do not offer the full financial recovery you could be entitled to receive. If a person or company other than your employer or a co-worker is responsible for your injury, we may be able to further your recovery by pursuing a personal injury claim. If your employer removed a guard from a machine that caused you to get hurt or if your employer exposed you to a dangerous chemical we may be able to make your employer pay you for your damages over and above what workers comp pays.

Let us take on your legal worries.

Workers’ Compensation FAQ

If an employer exposed you to the danger of an unguarded machine or to a dangerous chemical that caused your injury, there’s a good chance that theemployer won’t be as helpful because the employer knows you may have theright to make them pay.

Common questions after a work injury include:

  • What’s the first step I should take after suffering from a workplace injury?
  • What does workers comp pay for?
  • Under what circumstances does my employer owe me more than just what workers comp pays?

And there are many more. If you’ve been injured, the right team of attorneys can make all the difference as you answer these questions and seek recovery.

Protecting Your Right to Financial Recovery

In cases of guard removal by an employer or chemical exposure financial recovery for your losses due to a work injury is different from securing workers' compensation benefits. If you think your employer removed a guard from a machine or exposed you to a dangerous chemical or if a third party, such as subcontractor or machine manufacturer, could be responsible for contributing to your injury, call us to find out more information about how we can help you.
