Have you been injured on the job? In Ohio, if you experience a workplace injury or contract an occupational disease, it is likely you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits.
For over twenty years, Attorney John C. Bucalo has represented victims of workplace injury and disability and serves many clients in the great state of Ohio.
Because the interests of employers and insurance carriers are often in direct conflict with those of an injured worker, consulting with an experienced Ohio workers' compensation attorney as soon as possible is important as you seek to recover payment for medical costs and disability benefits.
In Ohio, workers' compensation insurance is provided through a state insurance fund and handled by two state agencies: the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC) and the Industrial Commission (IC). BWC administers the insurance program, and pays medical bills and indemnity payments. If there is a dispute, the IC is responsible for resolving contested issues.
Some employers do provide their own, self-funded workers' comp insurance coverage if they have the financial resources and are approved by the state to do so.
Regardless of who is providing your coverage, you should not wait to file a workers' comp claim. Ohio law sets time limits that can prevent you from receiving the compensation you deserve.
From initiation of the case to litigation when needed, attorney John C. Bucalo can help you recover.
