Revised Code § 4123.85 prescribes the limitations and notice requirements governing occupational disease claims. In all cases of occupational disease, or death resulting from occupational disease, claims for compensation or benefits shall be forever barred unless, within two years after the disability due to the disease began, or within such longer period as does not exceed six months after diagnosis of the occupational disease by a licensed physician or within two years after death occurs.

If you are suffering from a work related occupational disease, and you would like assistance gaining the benefits you may be entilted to, please contact The Bainbridge Firm as soon as possible.
