Do you have questions about the workers' compensation process?

You might have been aware of your work injury instantly. A sudden twist of the knee or a fall from a piece of equipment made it pretty obvious just what caused your pain and inability to work. However, not all work injuries are that obvious. Some are brought on slowly, by years and years of repetitive motion or exposure to some element that can cause chronic pain and some level of disability.

Whatever your situation may be that has lead you or a loved one to a place where you are unable to work, there are options. One of the options available to some workers in Ohio is workers' compensation. The workers' compensation process may feel daunting at first, especially to those who are unfamiliar with it. Here are a few things one should do after suffering a work injury.

First and foremost, a person's health comes first. That's why seeking medical attention immediately is top priority. After a person's health has been adequately addressed, do notify your employer as soon as possible. Every state is different in its time window for claims, but as a rule of thumb, the sooner you notify an employer, the better. Employers are then required by law to provide workers' compensation coverage and could face serious penalties if they fail to do so.

Any issues one will have with seeking workers' compensation usually occurs at this stage. Employers are required to have workers' compensation insurance for instances such as employee work injury. The failure to do so could have consequences for everyone involved. Do not hesitate to seek the workers' compensation you need after a work injury.
