What Does a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Do?

Posted by Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA on Jan 31, 2017 12:00:00 PM

Ohio law protects employees injured on the job.  Ohio’s employers must contribute to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, a public workers’ compensation pool, or to provide coverage through a private insurer.  These sources of compensation are then available to employees injured in the course of employment.

But protecting your right to adequate compensation for your injuries can be difficult.  Workers’ compensation claims can involve analyzing the scope of the damage and impairment you have suffered, timely filing a claim in a complex system, and fighting against denied or delayed claims.  For this stressful process, you need a trusted workers’ compensation lawyer.
