Helping Injured Workers Get The Compensation They Deserve
Many industries come with the frustrating reality of getting injured while on the job. Ohio has workers’ compensation laws to provide injured or disabled workers’ compensation and benefits. Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that protects employees in the case of injuries or illness due to their employment. Additionally, if you have a spouse or parent who died in a work-related accident or due to a work-related illness, you may be eligible to receive death benefits and compensation for your loss.
With a successful workers’ compensation claim, you may be able to recover for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of consortium and disability payments and benefits for retraining or rehabilitation. Workers’ compensation laws and benefits can be complicated to figure out on your own. Whether you work in manufacturing, trucking or health care, we are here for you. Our attorneys at Rummell, Curry & Regginello Law Firm can help you understand your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.
From Health Care To Trucking, Injuries Happen In All Industries
Your job doesn’t have to include operating heavy machinery to have an injury that may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Our workers’ compensation lawyers have helped people in different industries obtain fair compensation, from office workers to manufacturers.
Our attorneys have handled workers’ compensation claims involving:

Depending on your circumstances, you may pursue different types of workers’ compensation claims in Ohio. Under Ohio law, your employer must provide a safe workplace and abide by all safety regulations. You may be entitled to additional compensation if your employer violates these rules. If your injury results from a negligent person unrelated to your employer, you may still be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits and may file an additional lawsuit under a third-party claim.
