Serving Injured Workers In Manufacturing And Industry

No job is free from injury. But workers in factories, manufacturing and heavy industry face more kinds of serious injury than any other sector.

These are some of the injuries that we have obtained workers’ compensation benefits for:

  • Neck, spine and lower back injuries
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Shoulder and arm injuries
  • Leg and foot injuries
  • Chronic pain syndromes
  • Falls and collisions
  • Crushings
  • Falling objects
  • Neurological damage
  • Hearing loss and damage
  • Electric shocks
  • Burns and explosions
  • Chemical exposure
  • Lung and breathing problems
  • Loss of vision or hearing
  • Amputated limbs and appendages
  • Occupational illnesses
  • Arthritis from degeneration
  • Repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel

Note that not all injuries occur in a single discreet event, like a fall or collision. Long-term injuries such as repetitive stress syndromes also occur, as well as occupational diseases that take time to develop. Even psychological injuries can be compensable, under certain circumstances.

Recovery For Manufacturing And Industrial Injuries

Many manufacturing and industrial injuries are very painful and result in long-term disabilities and impairments. Injured workers often need extensive medical care and are unable to work for long periods, leading to financial hardship.

If you were injured at work in Cleveland, you have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim and recover benefits for medical care, wage replacement, and long-term disability. You could also pursue a personal injury lawsuit if a negligent third party caused your workplace accident, such as a co-worker or independent contractor.

How to File a Workers’ Compensation Claim in Ohio

Injured workers can file for workers’ compensation regardless of their fault or negligence. To get these benefits, you will need to file a claim with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) and prove that your injury happened at work. You must send your claim to the BWC within one year from the date of your workplace accident.

If you were injured at your warehouse or industrial job, your first step should be to report your injury to your employer as soon as possible. You should also seek medical attention as soon as you can from a BWC-approved physician and inform your doctor that you suffered your injury at work.

After reporting your injury, you’ll need to complete a First Report of an Injury, Occupational Disease, or Death (FROI) form and send it to the BWC. You can access this report online or obtain one from your employer. A workers’ compensation attorney from Bashein & Bashein can help you fill out this paperwork and gather the evidence necessary to establish your right to benefits.

The BWC will review your claim and either deny or approve your request for benefits within 28 days. If you do not agree with the agency’s decision, your attorney can help you file an appeal and ask to reverse the decision.
