Compensation when a Job Injury Changes Your Life

Everything changed that day at work. You never could’ve imagined it. A catastrophic accident led to your inability to use a limb or to an amputation.

You should get paid for what your job took from you.

Workers’ compensation benefits, including checks for lost wages and medical treatment free of charge, can help you maintain the lifestyle you worked hard to build.

But you don’t need to add struggling with a complicated workers’ comp system to the stress you’re already under.

Types of Limb Injuries

Most employees in Ohio are eligible for workers’ comp when an injury on the job forces them to miss work or never return to work.

The attorneys at HNB have helped people win workers’ comp claims in situations like these:

  • Ankylosis: Stiff, fused bones after an injury
  • Chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS): Ongoing pain after an injury
  • Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD): Severe, lasting pain after an injury
  • Amputation

It’s not surprising that the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) found that amputations caused some of the most lost work days among common workplace injuries in 2017.

And the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation named major extremity amputation as one of the most serious kinds of work injuries that happened in the state in 2018.

When you’re dealing with the aftermath of such a serious injury, take some of the burden off yourself. Let the team at the HNB law firm look at your case and make a plan to protect your financial future.

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

What You Get with Workers’ Comp

When you can no longer use a part of your body thanks to a dangerous job, your life is changing in ways that most people don’t understand.

Don’t shy away from seeking all the help available. You took on a job at considerable risk to yourself. It’s time for you to get support.

Workers’ compensation for loss of limbs can make a major difference in your life. You can receive the following:

  • Payment for lost wages:Equaling 72 percent of your pay in the first 12 weeks missing work and 66 percent after that
  • Medical costs:Including doctor visits, treatment from other health-care providers, and medications
  • Vocational rehabilitation:Help reorienting you to a new job if needed
  • Wage-reduction compensation:Payment to soften any income drop you experience when returning to work after an injury
  • Permanent partial disability: Compensation for long-term effects of your injury
  • Permanenttotal disability: Lifelong payment when you can’t work again

With an experienced workers’ comp lawyer from HNB, you’ve got someone to make sure forms get filed properly, deadlines get met, and your claim is handled correctly so a mistake doesn’t threaten or delay the benefits you deserve.

If your claim gets rejected, having an attorney also means you’ve got someone to fight for you.

HNB can take your fight to a hearing at the Ohio Industrial Commission—if that’s what it takes to win benefits.

If your injury resulted from the negligent behavior of someone who’s not an employee of your company, you may be able to seek additional payment through a personal injury claim. HNB can help with that, too.

After the loss of limb, we’ll work hard to get you every form of compensation you deserve.
