Injured Workers Rights in Ohio

Ohio has a unique workers compensation system.  While many states have a private workers comp insurance program, Ohio has a state funded system.    The BWC has posted a list of injured workers rights on the website.  For easy access, we’ve posted the list for you.

​As an injured worker in Ohio, you have the right:

  1. To workers¹ compensation benefits if you sustain a work-related injury or contract an occupational disease;
  2. To quick access to high-quality health care from any BWC-certified health-care provider you choose;
  3. To have your approved medical bills paid and not to be billed an additional amount;
  4. To expect prompt, professional and courteous customer service from all BWC employees;
  5. To access your records either in person or online;
  6. To receive timely payments for the allowed conditions in your claim;
  7. To be considered for all benefits and rehabilitation services for which you may be eligible;
  8. To a quality independent medical examination when required in your claim;
  9. To appeal a decision made in your claim to BWC, the MCO or the Industrial Commission;
  10. To represent yourself or hire a lawyer at your own expense.

If you have questions or feel like your rights have been violated, contact an experienced attorney for review.
