Skilled Ohio Worker's Compensation Attorneys

Workers' compensation, often called workers comp or workmans compensation, is a state-run program, which provides the equivalent of an insurance policy purchased by employer to cover injuries that occur in the workplace. Many people who are injured on the job fail to file a workers' compensation claim mistakenly believing that it will hurt their employer or result in a retaliatory termination.

Our workers' compensation lawyers provide all our potential clients with a confidential initial consultation where we discuss their rights as well as the effect their injuries have had on their life. We know that a neck injury, back injury, brain injury, crush injury, repetitive stress injury, repetitive strain injury (RSI), or carpal tunnel syndrome can significantly impact people professionally, financially, and emotionally.

Often workplace accidents result from result from OSHA safety violations or violations of specific safety requirement (VSSR). These workplace injuries are often associated with construction accident, industrial accident, and retail accidents; and they can result in permanent or temporary total disability that leaves a wage-earner unable to work.

We understand these claims and can help you file a VSSR application.
