WORK ACCIDENTS & WORK RELATED INJURIES
Most Ohio employers are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. In exchange, workers generally relinquish their right to sue their employer. In lieu of a work injury lawsuit, the injured worker is supposed to be taken care of by his or her employer, and Ohio’s workers’ comp system – without using the courts.
Unfortunately, many injured workers are denied workers’ comp benefits every year. The reasons can vary: The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation denies the injury claim or the employer tries to avoid paying. When these situations occur, the injured employee is usually in a vulnerable position and needs the help of a skilled columbus work injury lawyer.
At The Donahey Law Firm, our workers’ compensation attorneys will fight for your benefits. In addition to workers’ comp benefits, we explore other opportunities on our clients’ behalf, including product liability claims and third-party injury lawsuits.

Burns can be the most expensive and time consuming injuries to rehabilitate, and the people responsible need to be held accountable.
There are strict laws to protect construction workers, and if you are hurt on the job site your employer may be held liable for your injuries.
Accidents caused by falling objects, toxic exposure, and electrocution, to name a few. These accidents can take a person out of work for a long period of time and cause severe injuries. We can help you get workers’ compensation or other payment for your injuries.
If you get injured on the job, be sure to consult with one of our attorneys before you are offered a settlement or denied the money you deserve. We will examine all of the factors at play with your employer and the effects of your injuries.
Any on-the-job injury, no matter how badly an employee is hurt, is a serious matter. An injured employee and his or her family may suddenly face a lack of income, uncertainty about the nature of an injury, pain, frustration with available medical treatment, and confusion about the future.
SPEAK WITH AN EXPERIENCED LAWYER
At The Donahey Law Firm, our lawyers do more than fight for your rights to collect Ohio workers’ compensation benefits: We scrutinize your job-related accident to determine whether there’s an opportunity to bring a third-party claim.
In a third-party claim, the injured worker has the right to sue a party for causing or contributing to the accident. Third-party lawsuits are common in construction accidents because there are often a variety of parties on the job site aside from the injury victim’s employer.
Third-party claims are often brought against:
- Contractors, general contractors and subcontractors
- Property owners
- Safety device and equipment manufacturers (product defects)
