When you took your government job, you knew there were risks. But you did it willingly. You were proud to serve the public.
Then you got hurt. Maybe you assumed as a government employee that the government would take care of you.
Unfortunately, that’s not always how it works.
Workers’ compensation benefits can help tremendously, letting you pay your bills, focus on recovery, and get your life back to normal. But the workers’ comp system makes it a fight.
The lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal have decades of experience making sure people just like you get fair compensation for workplace injuries.
We can represent you to your employer, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC), and in hearings before the Ohio Industrial Commission. We’ll push back against anyone else who’s making your claim harder than it should be.
That’s why they say “Helping me, that’s HNB.”Talk to HNB Talk to HNB
We see a lot of government employees hurt on the job. Serving the public comes with certain hazards. But your service also means you deserve to be taken care of when something goes wrong.
Our workers’ comp lawyers help all of these kinds of workers and more:
Maybe you’re a police officer injured in a car accident, an assault, a fall or another dangerous situation. In fact, the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics found police and sheriff’s officers among the most injured workers in the United States in 2017.
Maybe you’re a firefighter who had objects fall on you during a fire. Or perhaps you were hurt lifting debris. Sometimes we see firefighters get seriously ill from fumes in a burning house.
Maybe you were working by a roadside and got injured lifting construction materials. Or you were hit by a driver not paying attention.
Sometimes, if your injury involved a car accident with someone outside your employer, you may have both a workers’ comp claim and personal injury claim.
The attorneys at HNB can evaluate your situation at no cost to you.Get My Free Case Review
