If you're like a lot of our more frequent readers and have been injured while on the job, then chances are you were also filled with a sense of fear when it happened. Not only were you probably afraid of how you'd be able to pay your medical expenses and other bills if you had to leave work to recover, you might have also been concerned that you might lose your job as well.
For some people, this fear stems from conversations they've had with their employers about reporting workplace injuries. Despite our state's laws, there are still some employers here in Ohio that take advantage of their employees and try to convince them that it's wrong or even illegal to report a work-related injury. We'd like to point out once again to our readers though that you do have rights to compensation.
