What Are Your Rights If You Have Been Injured At Work?

If you have suffered an injury while at work, then you may be entitled to receive workers compensation benefits. Obtaining workers compensation is a complicated process, and it is important to do everything correctly to ensure you receive the full benefits available. A skilled Ohio workers compensation lawyer can assist you in the process and make sure everything is done correctly.

What should you do if you are injured at work?
If you have been injured at work, then it is important that you take certain actions immediately. This will help improve your chances of receiving workers compensation benefits. If you are injured at work, here are some important steps to take:

  • Report the accident
  • Request that an accident report be completed
  • Document the accident scene (e.g., photographs)
  • Seek out immediate medical treatment
  • Contact a Cleveland Ohio workers’ comp attorney

Are there any consequences for filing a worker’s compensation claim?
Some who suffer injuries at work are concerned that pursuing a workers compensation claim could result in a loss of employment or other consequences. Fortunately, the law prohibits employers from taking adverse action against an employee who files a workers compensation claim.

If your workers compensation claim is successful, you will receive funds to help you get by as you recover from your injuries. Workers compensation payments are intended to help ensure that you receive your wages and relief from medical expenses. This will allow you to recuperate and hopefully return back to work.

The process can be complicated and overwhelming for many, especially when you are dealing with an injury.
