Workers' Compensation Overview
Attorney Mark Weinberger handles all types of Workers’ Compensation Claims, for people anywhere in the State of Ohio, with work-related injuries, occupational illnesses, or work-related death.
Various Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits
A range of benefits are available, as compensation for injury, illness, or death, to employees or survivors of loved-ones who have been hurt, made sick, or killed while on the job. These benefits include:
Medical Bills – All medical expenses relating to your job related injury, including doctor visits, pharmaceutical costs, and necessary surgeries, will be covered; however, the care must be given by physicians approved by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC).
Temporary Total Disability (TTD) – You may receive payment for a portion of your regular wages, as compensation for periods during which you were unable to work.
Scheduled Loss – Workers who have suffered the loss of use of a body part, or some loss of vision or hearing are eligible for this type of benefit payment.
Wage Loss Compensation – If you must accept a new position at a lower wage due to limited or restricted ability to meet the job requirements of your former position, as a result of a work related injury or illness, you might be eligible for compensation for a portion of the difference in pay.
Non-Working Wage Loss – If you are unable to get a job, because of limited or restricted ability to meet the job requirements due to work related injury or illness, Attorney Weinberger will pursue this benefit for you.
Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) – Also known as ‘permanent partial impairment’; this benefit is paid to compensate workers for the permanence of the injury or illness.
Permanent Total Disability – Employees who are unable to return to work because of a work related illness or injury may pursue this benefit.
About Older Claims
Many people are not aware that even if a work related injury or illness occurred long ago, workers who were hurt or made sick on the job might still have a claim. The period of time that these claims may stay open varies and there are changes in the law that make it necessary for you to hire a competent workers’ compensation attorney or risk losing benefits.
