Have You Suffered an INJURY AT WORK and You’re WORRIED about Paying Your BILLS and Paying for MEDICAL CARE?
Every year, hundreds of thousands of Ohioans get injured on the job leaving hard-working people like you wondering how they will support themselves and their families without a paycheck.
The good news is that free financial help is available from the multi-billion dollar Ohio’s workers’ compensation insurance fund. Unfortunately, many are unaware of the full amount of government run insurance money they are entitled to after a job-related injury.
Ohio’s Worker’s Compensation System Guarantees Injured Workers Much Needed Financial Support!
That’s right! You may not know it, but you are actually insured against injuries on the job. How you ask?
As required by law, your employer has been paying your workers’ compensation insurance premiums (or setting aside funds on your behalf), since they day you started working there!
So, when your injured at work, you are entitled to benefits under YOUR insurance policy. No different than your car or homeowner’s insurance!
In Ohio, this insurance is governed by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and these funds are available for wage loss, medical care, disability and other benefits.And you don’t need to file a lawsuit, or pay anything out-of-pocket, to get this money.
And you don’t need to prove someone else was at fault to get this money.
Even if it was your fault, you still qualify!
More than $1 billion, that’s billion with a B, is paid to injured Ohio workers every year for such things as:
- Strains & sprains
- Torn muscles, ligaments and tendons
- Mental & emotional conditions
- And of course, broken bones, amputation, disfigurement, loss of vision, loss of hearing and even death.
Some of the common causes of workplace injuries that qualify for workers’ compensation are:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Accidents from falling or flying debris
- Accidents using tools
- Accidents using cars, trucks, delivery vans or heavy equipment
- Even Injuries caused by repetitive motion, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- And many many more!
You Can Recover Cash Compensation and Have Your Medical Bills Covered!
Depending on the circumstances of your injury, you may be entitled to one or more of the following types of workers’ compensation insurance benefits:
- First, all your Medical Costs resulting from the injury will be covered
- Plus, you may recover Wage Loss Payments, if you’re unable to work for a relatively short period of time orcan’t find employment with your physical restrictions.
- And if you are permanently unable to work, these Wage Loss payments are payable for life.
- Plus, you can recover Partial Wage Loss Payments if you return to employment at less pay due to your injury.
In addition to Wage Loss Payments, you can also recover a Lump Sum Cash Award for:
- Lingering pain& suffering
- Partial or total impairment of a limb or part of your body or for amputation, loss of vision, loss of hearing or
- And finally, in the extremely unfortunate event of a fatal workplace injury, the deceased worker’s dependents can recover Death Benefits.
Thousands of Injured Workers Who Go It Alone are DENIED Benefits or Never Collect the Maximum Benefits Available to Them!
While it is it is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you because you filed a workers’ compensation claim, employers’ premiums may rise when the State pays out claims to their employees, the same way your car or homeowner’s insurance can go up when you make claims. So, unfortunately, many times your employer will fight your claim.
Further, just like your insurance company has an incentive to reduce claim payouts, so does the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.
What this means is that the process can be adversarial, with the state, your employer and their doctors, all trying to either deny your claim or reduce your benefits… in order to save them money!
The Bureau reports that thousands of claims are denied or dismissed every year. And thousands more never recover the full amount of compensation owed to them due to lack of knowledge or effective representation.
You see, your responsible for filing the proper forms and requesting the proper benefits and then proving to the government that your injury not only qualifies, but that you are entitled to the maximum benefits available.
And, unfortunately, there is no one there to provide you legal guidance and don’t expect them to cut you a break, just because you missed something, said something wrong or made a mistake.
So, I ask you…..with all that said, why would you go it alone when you could get experienced professional help at no out-of-pocket cost to you?!
