Job-Related Injuries and Workers’ Compensation
While some industries are riskier than others, almost anyone can sustain an injury while they are on the job. Whether you work in construction or in an office, it is important to know your rights if you sustain a workplace injury or illness. These can include:
- Acute injuries from accidents
- Repetitive movements resulting in occupational disease
- Illnesses due to exposure at work
Following any of the above, you should report the injury or illness to your employer as soon as possible. You should also seek the medical treatment you need to begin your recovery. Then, you should discuss your workers’ compensation claim with an experienced attorney.
Some workers’ compensation claims are straightforward, and you can receive your benefits for medical treatment and lost wages fairly easily. However, employers and the Bureau of Workers Compensation can create many delays and complications, and many valid claims are denied. We help with initial claims, as well as with appeals of denials. In addition, we can identify whether you also have the right to file a claim against a third party for negligence or misconduct. We work to ensure you receive the full benefits and compensation you deserve.

We strive to ensure every injured client receives the maximum compensation possible based on their specific circumstances.
Injuries from Defective Medical Devices
One of the most complicated and challenging types of injury cases involves injuries caused by defective medical devices. When a large manufacturer releases a medical device for patient use, that corporation has the duty to ensure that the device is safe for its intended use, does not have unreasonable risks of harm, and is not defectively designed or manufactured. When a company fails to abide by this duty, many patients can sustain serious and life-threatening injuries.
Because one type of medical device can injure so many patients, these cases often take the form of class actions. A class action combines the claims of numerous injured individuals against a single company for a certain type of defective product. Class actions are a complex type of injury litigation, and you want a Cleveland class action attorney representing your rights.
At Garson Johnson, LLC, not only do our attorneys have experience handling multiple class action lawsuits, but we also recently joined forces with a nationally-recognized class action law firm so we can best handle mass tort and multidistrict litigation. We handle cases stemming from different types of defective medical devices, including:
Social Security Disability Claims
Millions of Americans live with disabilities that prevent them from earning a living and covering their basic expenses. In many situations, benefits are available through Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). While you may know that you have a disability, it can be an extremely challenging and frustrating process to convince the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you qualify for benefits. The majority of claims are denied right out of the gate, and the appeal process can be difficult.
Our Cleveland Social Security disability attorneys strive to obtain the benefits that our clients deserve based on their disabling conditions. We can handle your claim from the start or appeal a denial. There is no time to lose, so you should seek help with your disability claim right away. We can assist with the following and more:
- Understanding the requirements for Social Security Disability
- Filing for Social Security
- Dealing with Social Security denials
- Proving you have an SSD eligible condition
