An on-the-job injury can often feel like the end of the line. Occupational injuries or illness can affect an individual or families income. Pursing a workers’ compensation case not only protects the injured party from allowing a workplace to treat them unfairly after an injury, but also can help replace lost wages and other medical expenses. Our workers compensation attorneys, at Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP, know that these cases can face difficulties along the way, and are dedicated to making the process as easy for you as possible.
As workers’ compensation attorneys, it is our responsibility to answers any questions that may arise throughout the claims process and provide guidance whenever possible. Even in the event that your claim is denied, we will help you through the appeals process and if necessary, with bringing your claim to court.
Our direct partnership with our clients helps to ease the workers’ compensation claim process. Our clients can expect regular updates and communication each step of the way, and rely on our team at Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP to stay up to date with deadlines. Lastly, our clients can rely on us to help locate high quality medical providers, trusted by the Ohio workers’ compensation system, to properly diagnose and treat conditions related to their workers’ compensation claim.
Attorneys with Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP, have provided counsel to injured and ill employees for over 60 years. Retaliation from an employer for reporting dangerous conditions and applying for workers’ compensation benefits often factors in to an individual’s decision to pursue a claim. We protect our clients from this retaliation. If an employer fires, demotes, reassigns, or harasses our clients as punishment for exercising their rights, we know how to take quick and decisive legal action.
When we collaborate with a client, we also investigate pursuing third-party injury claims. Despite the practically impossibility for an employee to sue his or her employer for negligently causing a workplace accident, the possibility does exist that a reckless driver, faulty toolmaker, or negligent employee of a different company can be held accountable via a personal injury claim or civil lawsuit.
Wage theft issues are often uncovered during our investigation into a workers’ compensation case. Paying employees less than minimum wage, misclassifying employees as independent contractors, or expecting employees to work off the clock unpaid are all wage theft issues. Our skilled staff will identify possible wage theft issues when they meet with you.

“Bob DeRose was a huge help in getting my complaint settled. They were responsive and a huge help with all my questions. Would recommend them to anyone who needs help!”
My experience with this Law firm was phenomenal. I found my way into their offices after an unexpected workplace injury. Initially I was clueless about their performance.
The fact that I was not merely looking out for a supplement for my financial budget, I was simply there to explore whatever compensation was due me since the injury legitimately occcured “during and in the course of my employment”.
After an initial visit to the offices where the necessary documentation were initiated, the rest were simply a phone call for updates. Sometimes it was even needless.
They frankly discussed the pathway as well as the unpredictability of the timing for the process.This was necessary. I took that in good faith. The fact that there was no upfront payment was also a good thing.
Without monitoring my calendar, I waited patiently for the various
phases of the process to unfold.
Finally the claim was settled with so much transparency. The unpredictable journey ended with a check delivered to my mailbox.
In fact communications from this Law office is always expedient. The Front Desk Associate was very helpful and polite at all times. My attorney’s paralegal was always available to play her part whenever necessary.“
“They are top-notch attorneys who are experts in their fields. They do great work and are easy to work with. They care about their clients and always try to do the best job possible for them.”
“I had an amazing experience working with Sandy and Robin on my case. Robin was just a short email or call away from all of my questions. The communication I had with Sandy was just as great. Both Sandy and Robin made sure I knew exactly what was going on with my case at all times. I will be recommending them to others. If I ever need help legal matters in the future, I know I can get the help from Sandy Meizlish.”
