Construction Injury

Under Ohio’s workers’ compensation law, there are some requirements for a claim to be considered legitimate. A physical injury or disease must be sustained as a direct cause of something that happened during a worker’s employment, whether this be an accident or negligence.

If no physical injury or disease exists, then a workers’ compensation claim cannot be made. Also, Ohio law specifies what may not be an injury, including

  • Self-inflicted injuries,
  • Injuries sustained due to horseplay,
  • Mental health conditions without a pre-existing physical injury or disease,
  • Natural deterioration or pre-existing conditions.

However, before making any determination, a Bureau of Workers’ Compensation claims service specialist (CSS) researches all claims to assure that all legal requirements for a claim have been met. Specifically, the CSS determines whether the worker’s injury or disease was directly caused by their employment. . Establishing causality relies on statements from the injured worker, their employer, and any witnesses. It also relies on viewing all medical evidence (i.e., progress notes, diagnostic reports, etc.) submitted by any treating providers.
