Obtaining Fair Value For Your Workers' Comp Claim

Most people know that they must file for workers' compensation if injured on the job. Sometimes, new claims can get stuck in all the red tape, or employers may seek to settle older claims once and for all.

In such cases, you want a strong advocate on your side, as the employee. Crowley Ahlers & Roth regularly helps injured or disabled workers in Cincinnati with settling new and old workers' compensation claims. We aim to ensure you receive the full value of your claim, whether paid out in installments or in a lump sum.

Why Settle My Workers' Comp Claim?

Those who wish to settle a workers' comp claim do so for many reasons. It could be that you're only using benefits occasionally, or to pay for medical visits and medications used to manage your condition. However, you might have access to other resources to cover these expenses, like a health plan through your job, your spouse's job, or Ohio's health care exchange or the federal one.

It may also be that you're being pressured to end your benefits by your employer, which may seek to offer you a lump-sum payment instead of continuing to pay for your benefits. In such cases, our lawyers can help you quantify what your continued costs of care will be. If necessary, we will draw on analysis from your medical team, vocational specialists and other experts to develop your claim.

We will then negotiate on your behalf with your employer and the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation. All parties must agree to the settlement in order for it to take effect. Our attorneys have decades of experience obtaining settlements where everyone walks away satisfied.

Don't Settle For Less Than You Deserve
