Workers' Compensation Benefits
When you are hurt at work, you are entitled to seek workers' compensation (sometimes called workman's compensation) benefits. Unfortunately, many injured employees fail to file, either unaware of the benefits or fearing employer retaliation. Those who attempt to file on their own are often denied on technicalities. A skilled lawyer can help you navigate the complicated workers' compensation system and attempt to increase your chances of success.
My name is Mark S. Weinberger. Whether you have sustained a workplace injury, developed an occupational disease or suffered the work-related death of a loved one, I can help pursue compensation for you.
Types of Workers' Compensation Benefits
Employees injured on the job are eligible to pursue a range of benefits, including:
- Medical bills - All medical expenses relating to your job injury, including doctor visits, pharmaceutical costs and necessary surgeries, will be covered. However, you must see a physician approved by the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC).
- Temporary Total Disability (TTD) — While you are unable to work, you may collect payments that cover a portion of your regular wages.
- Scheduled loss — This payment is made to workers who suffer the loss of use of a body part or the loss of hearing or vision.
- Wage loss compensation — If work restrictions cause you accept a position at a lower wage, you may be entitled to compensation for a portion of the difference.
- Non-working wage loss — If you are unable to find employment due to work restrictions, you may pursue this benefit.
- Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) — Also known as permanent partial impairment, this is paid to compensate workers for the permanent nature of their injury.
- Permanent Total Disability (PTD) — This is paid to employees who are unable to return to work because of their injuries.
To learn more about these benefits and other potential sources of compensation, contact my office.
25 Years of Legal Experience
Don't make the mistake of filing without an attorney. Your employer and the BWC will not inform you about the available benefits. Further, you will not know the true value of your claim and may risk accepting a smaller settlement than you deserve. Protect yourself with my experience.
