Getting injured at work can take a serious toll on a person’s life. Not only can there be painful or troubling health issues to be concerned about, but there are also some very real financial challenges that injured workers can face.
Thankfully, Ohio workers generally have access to workers’ compensation benefits. This financial support can be crucial in helping people get the treatment they need and cover some living expenses, even if they cannot work. While you may be aware of workers’ compensation benefits, you may not be aware of all the different types of benefits you may be eligible to receive.
For example, you may not realize that some benefits are available depending on the type of injury you have suffered. If you have lost a body part or use of a body part, you may be eligible to receive additional benefits.
There are also benefits available for family members if a loved one has been killed on the job, compensation for lost wages, support for living expenses while you are receiving treatment and compensation if the injury was the result of negligence.
It can be easy to overlook some of these benefits, especially when you are already dealing with the stress and anxiety of an injury. We understand that you likely don’t want to add a complicated application process to the mix.
