Unclaimed Awards in Existing Ohio Workers’ Compensation Claims

If you have an existing Ohio Workers’ Compensation claim that has been allowed by the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation or your self-insured employer, there may be benefits you are entitled to that have never been pursued. This is particularly the case if you have never had legal representation. These payments may exist not only in newer claims, but also claims that are several years old and have not had any activity recently.

At Green Haines Sgambati Co., LPA., we have assisted countless injured workers in obtaining payments that had previously gone unclaimed. These benefits may take several different forms depending on your individual circumstances. Unfortunately, without proper legal representation, injured workers often miss out on these payments because their employers and the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation do not inform them of their rights.

Contact Green Haines Sgambati Co., LPA for a free consultation to find out what you may be missing out on. It is important to pursue these benefits promptly, as Ohio Workers’ Compensation claims do not have an unlimited shelf life. Once a claim expires, these unclaimed benefits can no longer be pursued.
