Cincinnati Work-Related Injury Attorneys
If you were injured at work or suffer from an occupational disease, this may be the first time you have had to deal with the Ohio or Kentucky workers’ compensation system. Workers’ compensation is a complex body of law, and without a lawyer to help you navigate the system, you may not receive all of the benefits you are due.
At Lindhorst & Dreidame in Cincinnati, Ohio, our lawyers represent employees at every stage of the workers’ compensation claim process, including administrative and VSSR proceedings as well as state court litigation. We offer a free initial phone consultation to discuss your case and explain what you need to do to protect your rights.
What Benefits Am I Due From Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation benefits include:
- Medical care as long as you need it for your work injury or occupational illness
- Prescription drugs
- A percentage of your wages for as long as you are unable to work or can only work part time
- Compensation for any percentage for permanent impairment that remains after you reach maximum medical improvement.
If you are unable to perform your old job, you may be entitled to vocational rehabilitation services.
Do I Need A Lawyer To File A Workers’ Compensation Claim?
If your injury is not serious, you may not need a lawyer’s help to receive the benefits you need. However, if you have suffered a serious injury that may result in significant time away from work and ongoing medical issues, you should consider hiring an attorney.
We handle personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis, which means that we will not ask you to pay any attorney fees upfront. Our fees are typically a percentage of the benefits you receive for permanent impairment. We represent injured workers in the greater Cincinnati metropolitan area, southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky.
