Thinking Outside The Box Approach to Ohio Workers’ Compensation
Taubman Law, is the only firm that thinks outside the box in Ohio. Any attorney can file a C-92 on a workers’ compensation claim or settle a rear-end collision.
But how do we separate ourselves from the countless other Law Firms? Imagine our client Jim, Jim is a cook who was locked in a cooler. His workers’ compensation claim was allowed for a contusion of his right hand and a strain of his low back but his anxiety was substantially aggravated because he was claustrophobic. The BWC allows psychological injuries where there is a physical injury but not just a psychological injury. We filed in the Court of Common Pleas to get the law changed and will update you on the battle to get psychological claims alone to be allowed conditions.
We believe a mother working as a school crossing guard whose daughter gets run over by a car should be allowed to file for psychological injuries, why shouldn’t she have a claim or an officer who witnesses a murder or the paramedic or EMT that has to pull bodies out of the cars? Why shouldn’t these individuals be allowed to have claims for PTSD, anxiety, or depression?
Taubman Law’s different approaches to the practice of Law not only benefits our clients but society as a whole. A client, let’s call him J.M., J.M. is a jailer who tore his right rotator cuff in a fight with a prisoner. His workers’ compensation claim was allowed for his right rotator cuff. He developed osteoarthritis and this was additionally allowed in the claim. Then because he could not resume his work duties and had to sit at a desk, he became depressed and anxious. We got his claim additionally recognized for these conditions. We are always thinking of ways to make sure you are covered here and now and into the future. Another client, V.L., a nurse at a local hospital had her claim allowed for physical and psychological injuries. Her depression and avoidance of people made it such that I got her permanent total disability because she could not get along with other people in a closed environment.
