You have the right to compensation if you’re hurt on the job. It’s the law. Unfortunately, you won’t get paid automatically. First, you have to file a claim for benefits. Then, employers and insurance companies may try to skirt the law and give you less compensation than you deserve or force you to return to work too early. That’s why is advisable to hire a worker’s compensation lawyer.
With very few exceptions, every employee in Ohio must be covered by a workers’ compensation policy through the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC). That policy will pay out to cover the medical costs associated with an injury, wages for time off work due to the injury, and settlements for permanent disabilities caused by the injury.
If you receive workers’ compensation, you give up the right to sue your employer for compensation separately. In some cases, you may get more compensation from a lawsuit than from the BWC. You’ll need to carefully consider a potential payout against your costs and the circumstances surrounding your injury; you may want to consult with an experienced workers’ comp attorney before you decide what to do.
Dyer, Garofalo, Mann & Schultz have decades of experience with workers’ compensation claims. We’ll handle your claim and fight for the compensation you deserve from the insurance companies. We also handle third-party claims – if you were hurt at work due to the negligence of someone other than your employer, you may still be entitled to compensation. Finally, we’ll help you appeal a denied claim – the process is convoluted and a small technicality may be preventing your claim from going through.
When you’re hurt at work, your first priority should be to get well. You worry about your health and we’ll take care of your legal concerns. We handle workers’ compensation claims on a contingent fee basis, so you never have to pay out-of-pocket for our services. We only get paid if you do.

I am glad I chose DGMS for my personal injury case ! Sometimes I would call for update’s multiple times and yet they were patient and understanding. Crystal has done a phenomenal job thus far. Mr. Dominic Z. has done an awesome job as well with follow-up emails and ensuring we get the best results. I look forward to the end result as they are determined to get the best.
This was my first time having to deal with anything legal, they did a very good job, they helped me through the whole process start to finish. Kept me up to date with everything as time went and also didn’t make me feel dumb over a couple very “dumb” questions. Definitely the people I’ll come back to if needed again!
This will be the second review I have written. Can not say enough about Mr David Marquis, he has went above and beyond for me with my case. From day one, he has worked very hard for me to ensure that I would get what I was deserved. Also, his paralegals, Amy Smith and Allison was a God send. Whenever I had a question, they would get back with me within minutes.
I would highly recommend you to anyone. Thank you Mr Marquis and your staff for all you have done for me.
