Columbus Employer International Tort Attorneys

Tough Defense for Injured Workers in Columbus

Were you or someone close to you hurt on the job in the state of Ohio? If so, you may be wondering whether or not you will be able to obtain compensation - and from whom. In most cases, the law protects your employer from liability. This means that, even if your boss was demonstrably negligent and his or her lack of care can be linked to your injury, you cannot pursue legal action against them. Instead, your sole form of relief comes in the form of workers' compensation.

There is one exception to this rule, however, as established by the Supreme Court of Ohio in Vacha v. N. Ridgeville. An employee has the right to pursue damages against an employer for a personal injury through an intentional tort claim. This is only possible if the employee can demonstrate the existence of a tortious act with the intent to injure or with the confident knowledge that injury would occur.
