Workers’ Compensation

Gallagher Sharp’s attorneys have decades of experience capably managing Ohio workers’ compensation and VSSR claims. We have experience with allowance, disability (temporary total, permanent partial, wage loss, and permanent total disability) compensation, and treatment issues for both state-fund and self-insured employers with Ohio-based employees. Our attorneys also handle issues involving compliance rating, classification, and coverage related to claims that arise under Ohio law.

We have handled claims in every office of the Industrial Commission of Ohio and in all of Ohio’s eighty-eight counties when appealed for employers of all sizes in a wide variety of industries. Our workers’ compensation attorneys regularly attend administrative hearings involving allowance, treatment, compensation, and disability (including permanent total disability), and counsel employers on workers’ compensation programs and pre-injury evaluations.  In conjunction with or in addition to insurance counsel, we also provide advice and representation in VSSR and OSHA matters, as well as workplace intentional tort claims. We have multiple practitioners certified as Specialists in Workers’ Compensation law by the Ohio State Bar Association.
