Why Should I File A Workers’ Compensation Claim?

Sometimes when workers are injured, they may not seek medical treatment, take time off work or even notify their employer. They may fear being fired, missing work or experiencing retaliation from the employer. In many cases, workers simply hope their injuries will go away.

However, it is important to know that not filing a claim after a work-related injury is risky for your health and your job. Delaying or not ever getting medical treatment could result in your injury intensifying and could cause lifelong damage. If you are concerned about medical expenses, you should know that for most work-related injuries, your medical treatment will be covered by workers’ compensation. You should also receive workers’ comp benefits for your lost wages. You have rights under workers’ compensation law in Ohio. If your employer fires you simply because you were injured, you have the right to take legal action against your employer in addition to having your medical expenses covered.
