The Ohio Workers’ Compensation system is a no-fault insurance system that provides for the payment of lost wages, medical services and other benefits when an employee suffers an injury, develops an illness, or dies from an incident arising out of their employment. This system was established by the State of Ohio and covers the employees of both private and public employers. There are no costs for this insurance to the employee and benefits are determined by the extent of injury and the needs of the claimant.
