Workers’ compensation for Amputations

by Kara Dolan-West | Feb 24, 2015 | Workers' Compensation Benefits

If you have been injured at work, you are entitled to two things: medical benefits and financial compensation.

At The Bainbridge Firm, LLC, we work closely with our clients and the Managed Care Organization (MCO) to help ensure the MCO or insurance company approves the medical treatments, surgeries, medication and therapies our clients need to heal. Our attorneys also work with clients to ensure the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ compensation (BWC) pays them financial compensation for their lost wages, loss of future earning capacity and loss of bodily ability. Types of financial compensation include:

Lost wages

Temporary total disability while you are healing

Permanent partial disability to make up for the pain, suffering and permanent loss caused by your amputation.

The Ohio workers’ compensation process is complex and many injured workers find it difficult to navigate the system on their own. At The Bainbridge Firm, LLC, we help our clients during every stage of their claim. From the initial filing, to hearings in front of the Ohio Industrial Commission and any necessary appeals to state court — we will stand by your side and protect your rights.
