You put your safety on the line for your job. If you got hurt, your employer should take care of you.
When they don’t—leaving you to struggle with injuries, medical bills, and missed paychecks—it feels like a betrayal.
Workplace injuries happen in every major industry in Ohio. But there is a system that’s supposed to protect your financial situation and let you rebuild your life—workers’ compensation.
The law firm of Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal helps Ohio workers get the maximum benefits they deserve, including checks for lost wages and coverage for medical treatment resulting from your injury.
We don’t let your employer or the workers’ comp system push you aside. We work for workers, not companies.
That’s why they say “Helping me, that’s HNB.”Talk to HNB
Almost every employee in Ohio is covered by workers’ comp. Any employer with at least one employee is required to provide these benefits.
The key is that you must be an employee—instead of an independent contractor—and your injury or illness must’ve happened in the course of your job.
At HNB, our workers’ comp attorneys help people from all of these Ohio industries and more:
Sometimes employers try to play with the definition of independent contractor to avoid paying benefits. Or they argue your injury didn’t happen at work. Other times, they’re not fully honest about every kind of benefit you’re entitled to receive.
If they’re denying your benefits or giving you less than you deserve, a lawyer can help.
Most employers get workers’ comp coverage through the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC). Some companies are self-insured.
Our lawyers can negotiate with your employer, represent you to the BWC, and argue your case in a hearing at the Ohio Industrial Commission after you’re denied benefits.
When they stand in your way, we push back.
