Changes in Ohio Laws Should Benefit Workers
Recent interpretations of Ohio workers' compensation laws by the Ohio Supreme Court should benefit workers and retired workers.
In a series of cases, the state's high court has concluded that even retired workers — not just current workers — can file for permanent total disability reimbursement. The court also said that workers and retired workers who receive workers' compensation benefits are still eligible for settlements in product liability cases.
Thus, Kelley & Ferraro seeks fair compensation through the workers' compensation system and the courts for those who have been denied what is due to them. When a claimant believes he or she has not obtained justice during the administrative process before the Bureau of Workers' Compensation, Kelley & Ferraro is ready, willing and able to take the case to court to have a jury decide the issues.
