When Ohio residents send off their loved ones to their jobs in the morning, they expect that their family members will come back to them safe and sound. Unfortunately, this is not always what happens, as workers often get injured at work and this injury can be either short term or long term. The injury or illness ends up affecting not only the workplace accident victim, it also affects their families as not only is the breadwinner not able to work anymore, there are added medical expenses associated with medical care.
This financial disaster can continue for a long period of time if there is no one to intervene. This is why most employees are covered by their employers through workers' compensation and the injured employee just has to file the claim. However, it is not always that easy-accident victims often hesitate from filing claims because of fear of retaliation and when they do file, the claim can be disputed by either the employer or their insurance company.
