Dayton Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Recovering Compensation for On-the-Job Injuries in Dayton

Under state law, nearly anyone who is hurt on the job is entitled to file a claim for workers' compensation benefits. This provides much needed financial support to help offset the costs of medical treatment and the wages lost during recovery. Workers' compensation is a no-fault insurance program, so it is not necessary to prove that your employer or anyone else caused your accident through negligence.

Unfortunately, the benefits available through workers' comp are somewhat meager-whereas a personal injury claim is capable of recovering comprehensive financial compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Pain & suffering

Workers' comp only provides for necessary medical costs and limited wage replacement. If you have been injured at on the job and are counting on workers' compensation to make it possible for you to support your family, it is in your best interests to hire an attorney to represent you in your claim and fight to maximize the value of your claim.
