Work Injury Attorneys in Mansfield, Ohio
Ohio Workers’ Compensation
An injury suffered on the job can be a difficult for an injured worker both financially and emotionally. Unfortunately, an injured worker is not often explained their rights after a work injury. Collecting the benefits an injured worker is entitled to can be distressing difficult to obtain without counsel.
In many cases, you have a right to compensation. If treatment is needed for your work injury, you have a right to treatment. You have a right to workers’ compensation even if your employer tells you that you are a contractor, or that they do not have coverage for workers’ compensation. Their failure to pay for coverage does not affect your right to the protection of the law. It is unfortunate, but when an employer “cheats the system” you may have to force your employer and their insurance company to give you the protection you deserve.
Many times, an injured worker is told they must treat with a company doctor and are not even aware they have the choice of physician to treat their work injury. You may be harassed and be treated poorly at work. You may even be fired. Your employer may not advise you about your rights after a workplace injury and may even give you incorrect information. Before speaking to insurance representatives or signing away your rights, you should speak to our experienced Mansfield work injury lawyers. Our attorneys can help.
