Four reasons why your Ohio Workers’ Compensation Claim was deniedApril 1, 2021
Ohio Workers’ Compensation Claims: You don’t have to have a serious or debilitating injury to qualifyJune 5, 2021
For many people, they go their entire working life without having to file for Ohio Workers’ Compensation Coverage. But for others, they might have to file once – or even multiple times.
The fact is, some people work desk jobs and so there is less risk or injury or illness. But some people have more demanding jobs that are more prone to injuries that might cause a need to file for Ohio Workers’ Compensation Coverage. And sometimes, they have to file for Ohio Workers’ Compensation Coverage more than once!
The fact is, you can file for Ohio Workers’ Compensation Coverage more than once and if you are injured or sickened at work, you have a right to benefits – even if you’ve had previous injuries or illnesses.
However, if you have been injured or suffered illness more than once on your job, it is probably time to hire an attorney who is experienced in dealing with these types of claims.
A few reasons. One, you need to make sure you get the benefits you deserve – and are entitled to. You will also need to make sure you are fully healed or well before you return to work.
Filing multiple claims can raise red flags. While it won’t automatically disqualify you from getting benefits, if you’ve filed previous claims, you might face greater scrutiny – which makes hiring an experienced attorney even more important.
The sad fact is, there are people who try to take advantage of the system. While most people are not like this, the ones who are can make it more challenging for others.
No one wants to get hurt or sick on the job and if you are, you are entitled to your benefits and a fair journey through the process.
So, if you’ve filed a previous claim, hire a qualified and experienced attorney to help you navigate the system. It’s a complex system and it’ll make the process easier, for sure.
