Workers’ Compensation And Ohio Workers’ Exposure To Asbestos

Interpretations of Ohio workers’ compensation laws by the Ohio Supreme Court benefit workers and retired workers. This means that those who became sick due to exposure to asbestos fibers at work should be entitled to work comp benefits. And that’s not all. Workers who were later diagnosed with cancer are still able to seek compensation in personal injury lawsuits.

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.
