Workers' compensation protection for injured workers in Ohio

Workers' compensation benefits provide a valuable resource for injured workers and serve as an important protection when they have been harmed on the job. Workers' compensation benefits are a protection for injured workers in Ohio but because they preclude a claim for damages against the employer, it is important for injured workers and their families to thoroughly understand the benefits available to them in Ohio through workers' compensation.

Workers who have suffered harm at work in Ohio may be able to receive workers' compensation benefits to help with their injuries, time away from work and recovery process. Both workers suffering from a workplace injury or illness may be able to receive benefits. Whether the worker fell on the job or suffers from carpal tunnel syndrome, protections may be available to them and they should be familiar with what those protections are.

Injured workers have 2 years to file a claim for workers' compensation in Ohio and 14 days to appeal a denial of benefits. The Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation has 28 days to respond to a claim for workers' compensation benefits. The benefits that may be available to inured workers include medical care and treatment benefits; temporary total disability benefits; permanent partial disability benefits; permanent total disability benefits; wage losses that result from the injury; and death benefits in circumstances of a fatal workplace accident.

Employers also have responsibilities in Ohio to carry workers' compensation insurance and report workplace injuries and illnesses. Workers' compensation benefits are a vital resource for injured workers in Ohio which is why they should be familiar with what their legal protections are.
