An injury on the job has disrupted your life.
Workers’ compensation benefits—including payment for lost wages and medical treatment—could be just what you need to regain your sense of stability and peace.
But getting benefits isn’t as easy as it should be.
People in the workers’ comp system—including employers, doctors for the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC), claims specialists, and others—will scrutinize your files, looking for problems that might disqualify you from getting benefits.
So you need to carefully describe everything about your injury to your medical provider from the beginning. This can be hard when you’re in pain. But it can also be hard to go back and change your information later.
