Ohio Workers’ Compensation – Injuries

Types of Workers’ Compensation Injuries

Injuries at work may be caused by sudden, unexpected accidents, or they may develop slowly over time without your knowledge because of prolonged exposure to toxic substances or something else harmful to you. If you or a family member has suffered a work-related injury or occupational disease, you may be entitled to receive all types of workers’ comp benefits. However, not every injury and disease is covered by workers’ compensation.

An experienced  workers’ comp attorney analyzes your potential workers’ comp claim —including your injuries, medical evidence and ability to work — to determine your eligibility to recover workers’ comp benefits. At Nager, Romaine & Schneiberg Co., L.P.A. (NRS), our attorneys assist workers who suffer from all types of injuries and occupational diseases, from traumatic industrial and commercial accidents to repetitive-use injuries and prolonged toxic, chemical or radiation exposure. NRS also assists workers who suffer from psychological injuries brought on by their work environment.
