What if my self-insured employer doesn’t pay my workers’ compensation claim?
If you are injured in an Ohio work injury accident, you will be dealing with one of two different types of employers. The type of employer you have will affect the way that your workers’ compensation claim is paid out.
If your employer is a self-insured employer (and not a state fund employer, as explained in this blog post)they are responsible for paying all workers’ compensation and benefits to the injured worker themselves. A self-insured employer does not pay a premium like a state fund employer does.
If you have been injured and your self-insured employer makes the decision to not pay a claim, you will then have to file a motion. You would then go through the hearing process to see your workers’ compensation issue through.
