Your claim may have been denied because you are missing a small piece of required information or medical support for your request. Or your claim may be denied because a legal question exists as to whether or not you are entitled to participate in the Ohio Workers' Compensation Fund for your injury. Either way, you may find yourself needing help to navigate the Ohio BWC system, hearings, and any potential appeals.
Getting approved for Social Security Disability claims are no walk in the park. You would think it would be much easier but the process can be very long and repetitive.
If your claim was disallowed, you may want to file an appeal. Once you have received the BWC order disallowing your claim, you have 14 days to file an appeal if you disagree with the decision. You may file the appeal online through the Industrial Commission Online Network (I.C.O.N), or you may file an appeal in writing. To file an appeal in writing you must print the Notice of Appeal (IC-2) form, fill it out and send the form to any Industrial Commission service office. Once the Industrial Commission receives your appeal, they will notify you of the time, date, and location of your hearing.
