Your job is your livelihood, and if something ever comes between you and your ability to work, you may find yourself struggling to make ends meet. An accident at work can lead to an endless stream of medical visits and the associated medical bills, and that doesn’t even begin to touch on the mental and physical toll that an accident can have on you.
Losing your ability to work, due to an injury from an accident, can be the source of a lot of stress and anxiety for you. You may start to feel critical of yourself because you can no longer provide for your family. And what about your actual injury? You’re dealing with all of this and you’re also seriously hurting from your accident – what can you do?
The first thing you need to do is pick up your phone and call me at 1 (800) 556-4769 for a free initial consultation to discuss your rights after a workplace accident. Next, you need to take a deep breath and trust that I’m going to help you get the compensation you deserve after the accident.
Many people are surprised to realize that yes, they can have a workers’ comp claim after an accident. This includes accidents that didn’t even occur on your work property. If you were doing anything work related and had an accident, you could still be entitled to compensation from your accident. Even if you don’t report the accident right away, you still have rights. The state of Ohio gives you a statute of limitations of two years to report the accident and file a claim.
What does all of this mean for you? If you had an accident at work, it may seem fairly cut and dry. However, Ohio is extremely hostile to workers and likes to deny claims. You need me to help you through this process. Start by documenting everything in your injury journal, from the time and place of the accident to how you felt afterwards, and any medical expenses and pain you felt.
What if you were in your car on the way to work and had an accident? That’s more of a gray area, but you still need to call me. If you were in your car running errands for your job, though, then yes. You are entitled to workers’ compensation. This includes picking up office supplies or running an errand for work, if you drive for a living, you were heading to a satellite location while on work hours, you were taking a coworker somewhere with you for work, or if you get paid for your commute.
As your workers’ compensation lawyer, I’ll make sure you get every single penny you are owed for your pain and suffering. This includes any money for medical expenses, rehabilitation, and even lost wages. Plus, I’ll do all of this out of my own pocket. Because I work on a contingency, my fee comes out of a percentage of your restitution.
I’ll also make sure you have a sympathetic ear to talk to while you are going through the claim process by giving you my personal cell phone number. You can call or text me any hour of the day and I will answer. I also completely understand that you may not want to drive halfway across the state to meet me when you are recovering from an accident, which is why I will come to you. I can meet you at the hospital, at a restaurant, or even in your own home. I have nearly 40 years serving the greater Cleveland, Ohio area, and I’m ready to serve you.
