What to Do if You Were Injured At Work

If you are injured at work and it is your employers fault, you may need to take legal action. Learn about the Ohio laws regarding worker’s compensation and work injury and hear about what you can do if you are injured on the job.

Q: It is my employer’s fault I was injured at work. What are the steps I should take to sue my employer?

A: If you get injured at work, the first thing you need to do is seek medical attention. If you do have work-related injuries, you can file for workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation can cover you for your medical bills, your lost wages, and for other things depending on the permanency of your injury. There are certain situations when you can make a claim against your employer that is over and above workers’ compensation.

In Ohio it’s called workplace intentional tort. To prove workplace intentional tort, you really need to talk to a lawyer because they are complicated cases with research and investigating that needs to be done. But if we can make the claim under the current law, then you can make a claim against your employer directly in addition to your workers’ compensation claim.
