Getting Injured Workers in Ohio the Benefits They Deserve

Ohio workers’ compensation is a complicated and constantly changing area of law. Without question, an injured individual needs an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to file a claim. Let a skilled lawyer from NRS Injury Law help. Our attorneys, trained paralegals and staff assist you through the complicated and often frustrating Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) system.

Our experienced legal staff helps injured workers get the workers’ comp benefits they are entitled to. Each year the attorneys at NRS handle more than 10,000 hearings before the Ohio Industrial Commission.
Whether the issue is payment of a medical bill, payment for lost time from work or adding an additional condition to a claim or settlement, our workers’ compensation staff thoroughly prepares and works on our clients’ behalf for a successful result.

NRS Injury Law workers’ Compensation Lawyers Experienced at Combating Claim Challenges and Disputing Claim Denials

Often an employer, or even the BWC itself, steps in to challenge your claim, which can slow down or even stop your benefits. Your employer and the BWC may hire attorneys to have your claim or benefits denied. In such complicated situations — without an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer on your side — your rights to full and fair compensation are not protected. That is why you need representation from a trusted workers’ compensation lawyer at NRS.
Whether the issue is payment of a medical bill, payment for lost time from work or adding an additional condition to a claim or settlement, our workers’ compensation staff thoroughly prepares and works on our clients’ behalf for a successful result.

Types of compensation

The workers’ comp attorneys at NRS Injury Law. can help clients obtain compensation for expenses related to any type of on-the-job injury — even those injuries that require only minimal time away from work, such as a broken bone or a minor concussion. Unfortunately, many injuries result in some degree of disability. The following are covered under Ohio state law:
Total disability. This includes situations where you experience a total loss of function, including both temporary and permanent total disability.
Partial disability. When you experience a total loss of function to a body part — such as your legs, arms, or an internal bodily function — this is considered partial disability. Again, you can experience temporary or permanent partial disability.
Our workers’ compensation lawyers have an impressive track record obtaining settlements to compensate injured workers for a range of workers’ compensation benefits, including the following:
Lost wages. Whether your wage loss is temporary or permanent, workers’ comp law provides for compensation.
Reimbursement for therapy. Physical and psychological therapies are often required to help those injured return to the best life possible. NRS helps clients obtain all additional allowances, including vocational rehabilitation to return to work or to find a new job.
Payment of medical bills. Our attorneys help injured workers obtain compensation for medical expenses and guide them through the process when the law requires authorization of treatment.
