What Is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ Compensation is an insurance system that exists in all states to protect employees. If you are injured or contract an illness on the job, Workers’ Compensation may be able to file a claim to help cover incurred expenses. In Ohio, employers are required by law to pay into the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC), or purchase workers’ compensation insurance through a private insurer.

At Agee Clymer Mitchell & Portman, our lawyers are ready and available to aid any injured worker wanting to apply for workers’ compensation.
