Ohio court: Businesses overpaid $860 million into workers' comp

A recent ruling by the Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals has confirmed that the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation has overcharged Ohio businesses more than $800 million in workers' compensation assessments. The question now becomes, what to do with the money that was collected?

Can a Social Security Disability Attorney Help You Get Benefits Faster?

The fastest way to receive benefits is to receive approval based on your original application for Social Security disability benefits (rather than having to appeal the decision, which can take more than a year). An attorney or disability advocate's expertise in knowing what Social Security is looking for can help to increase your chances of winning at the initial application process. If you can find an attorney to represent you at this stage, the lawyer can:

The Social Security Benefits Application Process

Industrial workplace accident at Ohio steel plant injures 4

Industrial safety is something that is easily taken for granted. Every time an industrial accident occurs, the reaction from the company is usually a reaffirmation that worker safety is a top priority, and that it is always taken seriously. And in some cases, that is probably true.

Working While Receiving Social Security Benefits

You can work while you receive Social Security retirement (or survivors) benefits. When you do, it could mean a higher benefit for you in the future. Higher benefits can be important to you later in life and increase the future benefit amounts your family and your survivors could receive.

The Medical Care Setback for Social Security Claimants

A claimant's medical care may be particularly important if the claimant is involved in so much medical care that the time spent going to physicians and hospitals or in therapy is a serious impediment to working in and of itself. Some claimants may have to engage in home health care, which is a serious impediment on the claimant's ability to work. It is important to disclose all information about regular or sporadic medical care that may prevent you from being able to work regularly.
