What Does Worker’s Compensation Mean?

Although it is a very common case, many people do not understand what worker’s compensation claims entail.

Q: What does worker’s compensation mean?

A: In Ohio, workers are covered by workers’ compensation. Sometimes that’s through the state’s workers’ compensation fund and some employers are self-insured. But, when you have been hurt at work, workers’ compensation can cover you for your medical bills, for the time that you have missed from work, and sometimes you can make a recovery based on the permanency of your injury.
