Our Ohio Workers' Compensation Law Firm Works When You Can’t

It takes only a second for an injury at work to turn a person’s life upside-down. Many accident victims will be denied disability benefits by the employers they have served faithfully for years, leaving them with no way to pay their medical bills or support their families while they are unable to work. Some will suffer permanent effects that prevent them from performing the work they have been doing all their lives. Although most accident victims want to heal and get back to work, they are often forced to cope with the added stress of waiting for workers’ compensation that they should have received months ago.

We Help You Get the Compensation You Deserve After an Accident at Work

Attorney James Monast has fought for the rights of Ohio’s injured and disabled workers for over 30 years, and has been certified as a specialist in workers’ compensation law by the Ohio Supreme court. By helping a wide variety of injured employees, Mr. Monast has gained comprehensive insight into the daily workings and operations of many different industries, bringing the benefit of his experience to future clients.

At Monast Law Office, we choose our cases carefully and dedicate ourselves completely to the clients we serve. You are not just a number to us. When you come to us, you can expect personal interaction and status updates throughout the course of your case. We never talk down to our clients, and often build lifelong relationships with the people we have helped in the past. Contact us today to learn more about your rights as an injured or disabled worker.

We help Ohio victims and their families get the benefits and proper payment they need after an injury, including:

  • Workers' Compensation. Workers can suffer numerous types of injuries on the job that can have long-lasting effects. Repetitive stress injuries, falls, back injuries, and other accidents can cause severe disability, preventing workers from earning a living for months or even years afterward. Workers who are hospitalized or are in extreme pain are still expected to jump through hoops in order to get compensation, and the steps they take immediately after an injury are critical to their physical and financial recovery. From filing paperwork and meeting deadlines to successful case resolution, our firm handles all aspects of your workers compensation claim. Not only do we guide you through the process, we handle all interactions with employers and the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, allowing you to focus on your recovery. Whether you are waiting for your benefits, have not yet filed, or need help after a fatal on-the-job injury in your family, we will stand by your side throughout the course of your compensation claim.

You Have the Right to Be Treated Fairly After a Work Injury

Employers, the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, and Third-Party Administrators (TPAs) are able to deny many work injury claims simply because workers do not understand their rights. If you have been injured on the job, you have a right to have your medical treatments reimbursed, your temporary wages paid, and to recover mentally and physically without fear of termination. Our staff members can give you honest information that allows you to make daily life choices throughout the course of your recovery. For more information and a personalized assessment of your claim, contact us to begin your initial consultation.

What Should You Do If You've Been Injured on the Job?

1. Report your injury
A common mistake people make surprisingly often is failing to report their work injury as soon as possible after it occurs. Regardless of the severity of your injury getting proper documentation is critical for ensuring you receive compensation.
2. Get Treatment
Seek medical treatment as soon as possible after the injury occurs. Depending upon the severity of the injury, you may decide to make an appointment with your family doctor, go to an Urgent Care facility or to the nearest emergency room.
3. File Paperwork
Make sure to file appropriate paperwork as soon as possible. Although the FROI-1 is often filed by the health provider, it is best to follow up with your employer’s benefits department and/or human resources personnel and with the BWC to make sure it has been filed.
4. Contact an Attorney
If you are not happy with the treatment or attention you are receiving as a result of your injury, or if you feel that its not being taken seriously or handled properly by your employer, you should consult a compensation attorney.
