OSHA fines circus for safety violation that injured 9 workers

A workplace accident in Rhode Island grabbed national attention a few months ago when eight performers and a circus staff member were seriously injured when a hanging device failed, sending the performers plummeting to the ground below. Some of our Ohio readers may have remembered hearing about the accident that left many people across the entire country wondering what an investigation might uncover about the accident.

The Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (OBWC or BWC) provides workers' compensation insurance coverage for employers and employees in the State of Ohio through a $22 billion fund. Based on assets under management, OBWC is the largest exclusive state-operated and second largest overall provider of workers' compensation insurance in the United States.

Why getting compensation after a work-related accident is key

Imagine that you have just suffered an injury while on the job. The injury is so severe that you not only require considerable medical attention afterwards but you are unable to work for a significant period of time. The injury also requires additional rehabilitation, which adds an additional financial strain you might not be prepared to handle so soon after a workplace accident.

How do I choose a physician to help with my work-related injury?

After suffering a work-related injury, most people's first thought is to seek medical attention. This is an incredibly good idea because it helps assess the severity of the injury, which tells you how much time you will need for recovery. But on top of this, seeing a physician after suffering a work-related injury also provides the necessary documentation you need to help turn your claim for workers' compensation into actual benefits later on.

Artificial turf and the risk of an occupational disease

In some jobs, there are certain injuries or diseases that are immediately recognized as work related. That's because they are commonly reported by workers in that job field, making claims for workers' compensation benefits a little easier to make.

When you suffer an injury because of your own negligence, most people are okay with covering their own medical expenses. But when injuries are the result of someone else's negligence, sentiments are different. Victims often feel that they should not be responsible for covering their medical bills because it was not their own negligence that led to the accident in the first place.

Black Lung claims could get help from new legislation measure

In our society, people work to make money so that they can support themselves and their families. But if the job is particularly dangerous or comes with the risk of developing an occupational disease, an unfortunate catch-22 is created. A person may no longer be able to work because of a work-related injury or illness but may need to in order to provide financial support for their family.
