Skilled Ohio Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Workers’ compensation, often called workers’ comp or workman’s compensation, is a state-run program, which provides the equivalent of an insurance policy purchased by an 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 OSHA safety violations or violations of specific safety requirements (VSSR). These workplace injuries are often associated with construction accidents, industrial accidents, and retail accidents; and they can result in a permanent or temporary total disability that leaves a wage-earner unable to work. VSSR claims can provide additional compensation for workers injured due to their employer’s failure to comply with certain safety requirements. We understand these claims and can help you file a VSSR application.
As a full-service law firm, we handle all necessary workers’ compensation paperwork and pursue any secondary claims related to the injury. Many on-the-job accidents result in personal injury claims, defective product litigation, third-party claims, premises liability cases and employment law cases. Regardless of the type of injury, Ibold & O’Brien is committed to helping people file workers’ compensation claims get the resources necessary to recover from their injury.
