Workers' compensation is a critical resource for those injured on the job, but it isn't always easy to obtain the coverage to which one is entitled under the law.

This can be particularly harmful for an employee who suffers permanently injuries on the job.

When residents in Ohio are injured on-the-job, it not only impacts health and wellbeing, but also affects the worker's ability to making a living. When a worker is injured in a workplace incident, it is imperative that they understand their rights and what resources are provided to them.
