Do You Need a Workers’ Comp Attorney in Ohio?

Workers’ comp injuries can be devastating, especially when they require weeks or months of recovery. If workers fail to report their injuries through the proper channels, they could find themselves with no paycheck during an extremely vulnerable time.

Injured workers must file a written accident report immediately, followed by a First Report of Injury Claim with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC). If the BWC contests the claim, the employee may receive a hearing notice to argue his or her case in front of the Ohio Industrial Commission (IC).

Workers have the option of representing themselves in these cases, but it is not advised. The laws governing workers’ compensation can be extremely complicated, and injured employees risk losing thousands of dollars in benefits if the IC denies their claim.
