Ohio-Workers-Compensation-Attorneys-Lawyer-LawsuitWorkplace injuries can take a devastating physical, emotional and financial toll on victims and their families. Ideally, Ohio’s Workers’ Compensation system should provide the victims of industrial accidents, occupational diseases and other work-related injuries with the benefits they need to get back on their feet.

Dayton Workers’ Compensation Claims

Ohio’s Workers’ Compensation System is extremely complex, and it can be difficult for those without legal experience to know what benefits they should receive after an injury. While Ohio’s Bureau of Workers’ Compensation regularly promises injured workers that they won’t need an attorney to help them navigate the system, this is rarely true. The Bureau’s case workers are usually overworked, and probably won’t have the time to ensure you receive all possible benefits. If you do not explicitly file for a particular benefit, it’s more than likely that you will not receive it.

At Wright & Schulte LLC, our Dayton Workers’ Compensation lawyers have successfully assisted hundreds of people throughout Ohio access all of the benefits they deserve. Depending on the severity of your injuries, the Ohio Workers’ Compensation benefits you may be eligible for include:

  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD) Benefit: A benefit paid to injured workers to replace income lost during their recovery. Injured workers are eligible for TTD benefits when a physician of record determines that their injuries prevent a return to their former position of employment on a temporary basis.
  • Wage Loss Benefits: These benefits compensate an injured worker for any reduction in earnings that result from restricted capacity due to limitations applied by the physician of record for injuries sustained in the claim.
  • Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) Benefits: These benefits are available when a certain percentage of a worker’s injuries are expected to remain permanent.
  • Permanent Total Disability (PTD) Benefits: These benefits compensate the injured worker for the loss of earning capacity if they are deemed permanently unable to return to work. These benefits are payable for life.
  • Disabled Workers’ Relief Fund Benefits: This fund provides supplemental relief to an injured worker who is already receiving PTD benefits, but receives less than state mandated minimum benefit levels. DWRF provides an annual cost of living adjustment for an injured worker.
  • Facial Disfigurement: This is a one-time award given to a worker who has suffered facial disfigurement that has the potential to hinder his or her ability to return to work in the same capacity. The maximum amount payable is $10,000.

At Wright & Schulte LLC, our Dayton Workers’ Compensation lawyers will conduct a thorough evaluation of your injury and medical history to determine what benefits you deserve. We also have experience at every level of the appeals process, including:
