Injured workers don't need to go at it alone

The Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation is the agency responsible for providing medical and wage replacement benefits to individuals who experience work-related injuries, disease or death. In the state of Ohio, workers have the right to make a claim for benefits if they experience a health concern because of their employment at a company. When your health and income are concerns, every attempt should be made to seek the benefits to which you are entitled and which you deserve.

Workplace fatalities going up in Ohio, U.S.

Fatal workplace incidents are on the rise in the U.S., including here in Ohio. That grim news comes from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Ohio Department of Health, and suggests that we still have a long way to go before we can say that all jobs in this country are reasonably safe.

Obesity can complicate workplace injuries, workers' comp claims

We all know that obesity is a serious health problem, but millions of people in Ohio and throughout the U.S. struggle with this condition. It is estimated that one in three Ohio residents live with obesity, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines as a body mass index of 30 or higher.

For Labor Day, a brief history of Ohio's workers' comp system

Monday is Labor Day. Most of us will enjoy the extra day off, but Labor Day weekend is also a time to reflect on the evolution of workplace safety protections in this country, including the introduction of workers’ compensation benefits when an employee gets hurt on the job.

What is an occupational illness?

It has been about six weeks since we discussed how heat illness can put people who work outdoors in the summer at serious risk. Many workers are not vulnerable to heat illness, due to the nature of their jobs, but may still develop an occupational illness that makes them seriously ill, and may even cause their death.

Injured Ohio workers can appeal a rejected workers' comp claim

If a party to a lawsuit does not agree with the verdict after trial is done, he or she usually has the right to ask for an appeal. A valid basis for appeal should lead to a new trial or other relief for the aggrieved party.

Ohio company fined $43K after teen worker loses hand

Most parents agree that letting teenagers have a part-time or summer job teaches them about financial independence, working with other people, and personal responsibility. State law allows people under 18 to work a variety of jobs, many of them physically taxing, but there are limits to what teenagers are allowed to do.

Employee or contractor? What could be at stake for Uber drivers

With the Ohio General Assembly currently discussing the passage of regulations for ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft, it's possible that new conversations could begin regarding the employee status given to drivers who work for such companies.

Ohio BWC testing reduced paperwork for contested injury claims

One common problem for injured workers in Ohio is delays in getting their injuries treated. Paperwork and red tape from the state Bureau of Workers’ Compensation can make it take longer to receive needed medical care, such as rehabilitation or surgery, than if the victim had sustained the same injury outside of work.
