Amputation And Securing Workers’ Compensation Benefits
If you work in manufacturing, in construction or on an assembly line or perform other types of manual labor, a lost finger, hand or another body part may leave you without a way to earn a living. At The Bainbridge Firm, LLC, we help injured workers throughout central and southern Ohio get the workers’ compensation they need to support themselves and their families after a work-related amputation.
Workers’ Comp Benefits For Amputations
If you have been injured at work, you are entitled to two things: medical benefits and financial compensation.
Our attorneys and staff 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 our firm, 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.
You Don’t Have To Do It Alone; We’re Here To Help
