5 Common Misconceptions About Workers’ Comp

Updated: Nov 2, 2020

Did you get injured at work? Trying to get work injury benefits can be one of the most challenging types of claims that employees will ever have to face. Take a look at these five common misconceptions about workers’ comp:


Your employer wants to help. In a perfect world, this would be true. However, your employer has a company to run and your claim will cost them money. Having your own Cleveland workers’ comp attorney will help—your attorney truly has only your interest in mind.


You can’t fight claims that are denied. There are processes to appeal denied claims that can get you the coverage that you need for treatment. Experts in the field of compensation can help you to have your case reviewed.


They get to choose your doctors. We often hear that an employer tells their employee that they must go to a specific doctor for treatment. This is false. According to expert Cleveland disability discrimination lawyers, you can see any doctor you would like for treatment in the State of Ohio. It is important to choose a doctor that has your interests in mind, not those of your employer.


You can’t get a medical consultation paid for by workers’ comp. In Ohio, you can request a second opinion through workers’ compensation, or a consultation with a specialist.”


“I’m going to get fired!" So many workers think that if they file a workers’ comp claim they will get fired. In Ohio, it is unlawful for an employee to fire their employee for filing or pursuing a workers’ compensation claim. If your employer fires you, the real question is: what are you going to do about? Contact the employment retaliation lawyers at Wincek & DeRosa.”
