Cleveland Workers' Comp Settlement Lawyer

Elyria Work Injury Attorney

Offices in Cleveland, Akron, Elyria and Chardon

If you have an open workers' compensation claim, you may choose to settle it and receive a lump sum payment. To increase your chances of receiving the maximum amount, work with a lawyer who knows Ohio workers' compensation law.

At Levey/Gray LLC, we represent injured workers in all stages of the workers' compensation process, including settlements. Whether you have an older claim or initially received a small settlement, we can help you negotiate a lump sum settlement. To discuss your claim, please call 216-586-2010 or 866-246-7108, or contact us online for a free consultation.

The Settlement Process

In order to settle a workers' compensation claim, your employer must agree to the settlement. The Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (OHBWC) approves claim settlements. To ensure that a settlement is fair to all involved parties, the Industrial Commission of Ohio may review the settlement within 30 days.

You may settle your entire claim, which usually includes all past, present and future expenses (medical benefits and wages). The OHBWC calculates settlement amounts based on the expected future cost of your injury and then prorates that amount to reflect the probability of the costs occurring. An experienced workers' comp attorney can present your strongest case for an adequate settlement. Trying to negotiate with the OHBWC on your own will likely be difficult.

If your injury occurred before September 2006, there is a 10-year statute of limitations for settling your claim. If your injury occurred after that date, you have five years to settle your claim from the last date of compensation or the date of your injury, whichever is later.

You do not want to miss these deadlines. Please call our office at 216-586-2010 or 866-246-7108 to schedule an appointment with a northeast Ohio workers' comp settlement attorney.
