Injuries in the workplace can happen to anyone, even the most careful and diligent worker. The fact is, nobody goes to work expecting to sustain a life-changing injury that can derail them, depriving them from their ability to work as well as negatively impacting their quality of life.
Every line of work, from the repetitive stress of office work to factory and warehouse work, can come with risks that can result in illness or injury. No job is immune from injury or illness, and it’s important that you know your rights in this arena and how I can help protect you.
The first thing you need to know is that no matter who is at fault, you are entitled to compensation if you are injured or sickened at work. Even if it seems like a minor injury, it’s critical that you report it right away to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve. Ohio is not a claimant-friendly state, and it’s important to have a skilled and knowledgeable lawyer on your side to fight for your rights. With nearly forty years of serving the greater Columbus, Ohio area, I am the lawyer you need to ensure you get the financial restitution you deserve.
I take on workers comp cases that insurance refuses to cover, ensuring you get the financial restitution you require to make up for lost wages and mounting medical bills. If you have sustained an injury at work, you need to immediately:
- Go to the doctor to make sure it’s reported

- File a report with your supervisor to get it in writing

You have the right to get the treatment you need to get better without piles of medical bills, and you have the right to work pain-free; if you lose your ability to work, you are also entitled to financial compensation due to lost wages. I will stand by your side if your claim goes to a hearing. As your lawyer, I work on a contingency basis, which means you don’t have to pay a single penny – if you don’t get paid, then I don’t get paid.
