Workers’ Compensation & Safety (OSHA)

We help both state-funded and self-insured employers control these often significant costs.

Overview

With decades of experience before the Ohio Industrial Commission and the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation, we address both common and complex issues faced by employers in the workers' compensation system.

Our experience with typical matters includes:

  • Injury, occupational disease and death claims
  • Treatment and compensation requests
  • Applications for permanent partial awards and permanent and total disability
  • Applications for violations of specific safety requirements (i.e., VSSR claims)

Additionally, we handle complex issues, including:

  • Start-up applications for coverage or and winding down of businesses
  • BWC audits
  • Employee classifications/misclassifications regarding independent contractors or other employees
  • OSHA compliance
  • Premium adjustments or assessments

Our attorneys also assist employers in the process to become self-insured and have also provided valuable input in the formation of policies and changes to Ohio’s statutory authority through their work with the BWC Rules Advisory Committee.
