You’ve Been Injured at Work—Now What?

Seek Medical Attention

After suffering an injury at work, you may be unsure of what to do next. First and foremost, you should seek medical attention to ensure your health and safety. Even if your injuries seem minor, allowing a doctor to conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the extent of the harm done is imperative. As you navigate your recovery, make sure to attend all doctor’s appointments and follow through on your doctor’s orders. This will benefit not only your well-being but your workers’ compensation case, too.

Report Your Injury

Once you’ve received medical attention, you will need to report your accident to your employer as soon as possible. After you’ve made your employer aware of your injury, a claim can be filed for workers’ compensation.

File a Claim for Compensation

In the state of Ohio, you have one year from the date of your injury to file a workers’ compensation claim. While you can file a claim yourself, there are a variety of parties who can file a claim on your behalf, including your employer, your physician, and more. Typically, a workers’ compensation claim is filed by a healthcare provider after receiving notice of a work-related injury.

Once your claim has been filed in the state of Ohio, it will be investigated by the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. They will then either accept or deny your claim.



Don’t Navigate This Process Alone

Working with a personal injury attorney through the process of filing a workers’ compensation claim can allow you to focus on your recovery instead of the time-consuming legalities. At Rubin and Zyndorf, our goal is to take the weight off your shoulders and simplify the task of pursuing the compensation you need to cover your lost wages and medical expenses.

If your claim is denied by the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, you have the right to appeal. At this point, you need to reach out to an attorney if you haven’t already. The appeals process is one that you shouldn't face alone, so allow us to help you overcome the many complexities that may arise along the way. We’re prepared to fight for your best interests and the compensation you deserve.
