Reclaim Your Life after a Work Injury

You give a lot of yourself to your job. And when you’re injured in the course of work, your job takes a lot away.

Here’s one thing that’s not your job: swallowing all the risks of working. When your life is disrupted, you should get paid for what you’ve lost.

Workers’ compensation benefits pay for your medical treatment and provide income when you can’t work, making a favorable difference in your life and financial future.

Your injury might’ve happened in a sudden, shocking moment. Or perhaps you developed a medical condition through long-term exposure to harmful working conditions.

Either way, the lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal help Ohio workers maximize their benefits.

We don’t represent companies or the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC). We help real people.

That’s why they say  “Helping me, that’s HNB.”

Injuries That Trigger Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Any injury that happens at work—affecting any part of your body—can qualify you for workers’ comp.

At HNB, we help many Ohioans with work injuries that can trigger benefits for lost wages, medical care, and job retraining, such as these:

For any workers’ comp case, you’ll need evidence proving your injury happened at work and showing how it affects your life.

If someone other than a co-worker caused your injury, like the other driver in a car accident that happened while you were driving for work, you could also have a personal injury claim on top of a workers’ comp claim.

Let the team at the HNB law firm look at your case and identify all the ways you should be paid for your injury.

We’ll provide an honest assessment of your case for free.

What To Do First after an Injury on the Job

To give yourself the strongest workers’ comp case, take these steps immediately after a workplace injury:

  • Report your injury to your supervisor.
  • Complete a written injury report and get a copy.
  • Get medical treatment as soon as possible.
  • Tell the doctor every detail of what happened.
  • Make sure your workers’ comp claim gets filed. You, your employer or your doctor can do it.
  • Don’t let your employer pay you directly to avoid filing a claim. Filing a claim protects your rights.
  • Get an experienced workers’ comp attorney.

Most employees in Ohio are covered by workers’ comp. It doesn’t matter if anyone was responsible for the accident that caused your injury—a supervisor, co-worker or even you.

Workers’ comp only looks at whether it happened on the job or was caused by conditions on the job.

An HNB lawyer makes sure your forms get filed properly, deadlines get met, and your claim is handled correctly so a mistake doesn’t threaten your benefits.

If you’re denied benefits, we can also fight for you in an appeals hearing at the Ohio Industrial Commission.

A job injury altered your work life. We’ll work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
