Our experienced attorneys, including a member who is certified by the Ohio State Bar Association as a specialist in workers' compensation, defend and assist in the management of workers compensation claims for employers. We represent self insured employers and large and small state-fund insured employers in hearings before the Industrial Commission and the adjudication committee of the Bureau of Workers' Compensation and appeals in state court that result from work related injuries and occupational diseases.
Our experience defending and advising clients regarding workers' compensation claims has resulted in significant cost savings for our clients in a cost-effective fashion. Workers' compensation costs can go unnoticed. Avoiding payments of false claims, managing difficult claims and settling valid claims for fair value can make the difference for state-funded employers between a significant premium reduction in group rating or a penalty rating and denial of participation in premium reduction programs. For self-insured employers, the savings in claims costs and assessments contributes to the bottom line. Our attorneys can advise employers on proactive methods to avoid claims costs and avoid litigation and increased premium expenses.
