Dayton Work Injuries: Your Options for Compensation

Every work injury is different. When you’ve been hurt on the job in Dayton, there are several ways in which you may be able to secure financial relief:

Workers Compensation Benefits

Under Ohio law, most employers must provide their employees with worker’s compensation protection coverage. This insurance should provide you with specific benefits, regardless of fault, including:

  • Compensation for a portion of your lost income
  • Coverage of your medical expenses
  • Vocational rehab benefits if you can’t return your current job type
  • Death benefits to surviving family members

Social Security Disability Benefits

The Social Security Administration (SSA) is responsible for the federal Social Security disability program. Depending on the specific details, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

To be eligible for SSD, your injuries do not necessarily need to have resulted from a work accident. Still, you must have a disabling medical condition and meet the other requirements specified under the SSDI and SSI regulations.

Filing A Civil Lawsuit for a Work Injury

You may have the opportunity to file a third-party claim when another party is responsible for causing your work injuries. In some instances, you may be able to pursue both worker’s compensation benefits and a third-party liability claim.

By pursuing a negligence-based lawsuit against the individual or entity responsible for causing your work injuries, you can recoup every loss as opposed to specific damages paid out by the insurance company.

Dayton Work Injury FAQs

Will my work injury claim go to court?

You should always prepare for the possibility of going to court. However, if your attorney can work with the insurance company to obtain an injury settlement that meets your needs, you may be able to avoid going to trial.

How long do I have to file a work injury claim in Dayton?

Under Ohio Law, the statute of limitations for worker’s compensation claims, is one year. However, if you are pursuing a work injury claim due to an occupational disease, the statute of limitations could be extended up to two years. Those seeking third-party liability claims must adhere to Ohio’s two-year personal injury statute of limitations.

What if I’m partially at fault for the accident?

Ohio follows a modified comparative negligence system. If you are partially responsible for your work accident, you will not be barred from recovering compensation if your degree of liability does not exceed 50%.

How long do work injury claims take?

The time it takes to resolve a work injury claim can vary depending on whether you seek worker’s comp benefits, a third-party claim, or SSD. Based on the complexity of your case, it could take as little as a few months to as long as several years. Speaking with an attorney is the best way to gauge what to expect.
