If you or your family member were injured at work, Ohio’s workers’ compensation program may be available to assist you financially in your time of need. If you are like most other Ohioans, though, chances are you do not know much about how your workers’ compensation payments will be calculated. In fact, the term “average weekly wage” may be completely foreign to you, and that is okay.
