Why You Need a Medina workers’ Compensation Attorney
Sadly, injuries sometimes take place on the job, no matter how careful we are. When these events occur, employees trust that workers’ compensation will be there to pay their wages and medical bills until they can get back to work. Sometimes, however, employers attempt to evade responsibility for workplace injuries. Why? Because compensation payouts can mean higher insurance rates. Fear of higher payments can be an impetus for employers to deny claims.
It is in the best financial interest of employers and their insurer, the state of Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, to minimize the amount of workers’ compensation funds they pay out, leaving deserving workers with less compensation than they are entitled to. Correcting this injustice is why the Marshall Grinder Debski Pitts Law Firm has dedicated a large part of our practice to workers’ compensation. If you were hurt on the job, you deserve compensation that is fair. Your MGDP workers’ compensation attorney in Medina is determined to get it for you.

When Should I Find a Medina Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?
In cases of minor injuries or illnesses, or when your employer does not contest your case, hiring a lawyer is likely unnecessary. However, a free consultation with an MGDP attorney can provide guidance and warn you of potential pitfalls. Situations you can probably manage on your own include an injury where little or no work was missed, injuries or illnesses that were minor, injuries or illnesses where no preexisting conditions are present.
If your case is complex or if you are questioning the response of your employer or the BWC to your claim, it’s a good idea to retain a Medina workers’ compensation lawyer. Contact us if:
- Your legitimate claim is denied or your employer is slow to pay. Did you know that some employers will reject a worker’s initial claim? Although this is not typical, the employer hopes that workers will be discouraged by a denial and too intimidated to challenge the decision.
- Your employer’s proposed settlement offer seems low and doesn’t cover your medical bills and lost wages. Usually, there is room for negotiation. An attorney can help you make this case, even if your employer’s offer has been approved by a workers’ compensation judge.
- Your ability to work is affected by your injury or illness. Disabilities are expensive for employers, but you may be entitled to significant payments. In these types of serious situations, having an experienced workers compensation attorney on your side is a must.
- Your employer retaliates. Demotion, a cut in hours or wages, or being fired without cause is illegal, but not unheard of. In these cases, you need a Medina workers’ compensation lawyer.
