PROVING CAUSATION TO GAIN BENEFITS
In order to receive workers' compensation in Ohio, you need to prove that your workplace either caused your injury or severely aggravated an existing injury. This means that you can receive benefits for a pre-existing condition that worsens due to your current role. Since a repetitive stress injury is not caused by a single, traumatic accident, it can be more difficult to prove causation than a typical workers’ compensation claim. Our attorneys have over 65 years of experience. We understand how to formulate a strong case for your injury and can utilize the expert advice of physicians to secure the compensation you need to care for your health.
