Commonly asked Questions about Workers' Compensation

What compensation and benefits are available to me if I'm hurt at work?

Injured workers are generally eligible to payment for the time they are off of work for a work injury and payment for the medical treatment related to a work injury. While every case is different, below is an explanation of the most common types of compensation in an Ohio workers' compensation claim:
Temporary Total Compensation is typically the first compensation you will receive following a work injury. Workers who are 100% disabled for a temporary period of time as a result of the injury or occupational disease will receive this compensation until their medical condition has stabilized;
Wage Loss Compensation can be paid following an injury if you are working with restrictions caused by the injury which cause a reduction in your earnings. You may also be eligible for wage loss compensation if you are actively seeking but are not able to find work within your physical capabilities;
Permanent Partial Disability is typically a lump sum payment for residual impairment resulting from an injury or occupational disease;
Permanent Total Disability (PTD) Compensation is paid to injured workers who have been declared permanently and totally disabled by the Industrial Commission of Ohio. This compensation is paid when an injured worker is not able to return to his or her former position of employment or engage in any sustained remunerative employment;
Lump Sum Settlements are paid to injured workers who have negotiated with their employer and the Bureau of Workers' Compensation to settle the workers' compensation claim.
