The current Ohio Work Comp (BWC) system puts all the responsibility to pursue benefits onto the injured worker.  This system is VERY confusing and full of rules and laws only a few would know what documents and forms to file and when to file.  Only a few would know the requirements to establish a claim.  Few know all injured workers' are ENTITLED to some form of compensation, and less would know how to maximize those benefits and obtain approval for treatment.

The system, as established, is inherently unfair and is currently set up AGAINST ALL injured workers.

For example; most employers in the State have Third Party Administrators (TPA's) These are large companies that are hired by employers to CONTROL COSTS on work comp claims filed against employers.  Their SOLE purpose is to REDUCE expenses of work comp claims.  Costs are controlled by denying claims, fighting claims OR keeping MEDCAl EXPENSES DOWN.  

Furthermore, ALL employers are represented by MCOs ( Managed Care Organizations) These are large companies that MANAGE or CONTROL THE COSTS OF MEDICAL TREATMENT.   Costs are controlled by DENYING any requested treatment.   

What INJURED WORKERS DO NOT know the MCO's ONLY have the FIRST WORD on Treatment.  NEVER THE LAST WORD.  All MCO decisions ARE APPEALABLE! AND EVERY DENIAL OF TREATMENT SHOULD BE APPEALED!.

The BWC has ATTORNEYS ON STAFF; THEY WILL COME INTO HEARINGS ( where disputes are resolved) AND WILL ONLY ARGUE AGAINST THE INJURED WORKER!!!!!  NEVER EVER WILL THEY ARGUE IN SUPPORT of an INJURED WORKER, even if the BWC supports an issue in favor of the worker, THE BWC ATTORNEYS WILL NOT ARGUE IN SUPPORT of an INJURED WORKER!  I believe THIS PRACTICE IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL and WRONG!!! 

 I have spent my entire career, OVER 30 YEARS years, helping good people, who happen to have gotten injured on the job, get through the maze of rules and procedures that are collectively called the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation.

 In each case..  each client deserves to know the ins and the outs of the system and I walk each client through what they can expect.  I work hard to answer all the questions and make sure the answers are understood.

 

Call us... we can help!

Industrial Power Plant Accident
I was injured in an accident @ Dayton Power & Light (DP&L) Killen Station, Rome Ohio on Apr. 19th, 2013. I suffered multiple Life changing injuries which required numerous surgeries from spinal injuries, broken ankle, torn tendons. Mr. Kime and his staff were relentless in handling of all paperwork through Workers Comp. to make sure all C-9's & Medco 14's were properly submitted in a timely manner so I could concentrate on dealing & scheduling all surgeries for needed treatment & all post operative therapies with all the Drs. I have had to deal with. At the same time Mr. Kime & staff making sure I was paid during treatment & recovery. I can't begin to thank Todd & his staff enough for all help during my time of need. I only hope & pray that no one has to go thru the events that I have had to endure, but in case of workplace injuries no matter how big or small, I Very Highly recommend the Law Office of Todd Garfield Kime in the handling of all your Workers Comp. needs! He has truly been a Godsend in helping me & my family get thru these past 6+ yrs & counting of some very difficult, painfull, & very emotional times in my life. I could not have gotten thru this without the help of him & his staff! With that being said, if one is ever injured at work, save yourself a huge headache & call the office of Todd Garfield Kime-You WON'T regret it!

Excellent Workers Comp Lawyer
Todd was there every step of the way to answer any and all questions. He and his staff were always prompt at returning calls, filing paperwork and most of all, just being there through the entire process. I would recommend him to anyone needing this type of attorney.

AN EXCELLENT LAWYER
I hired Mr. Kime in 2005. Todd and his staff wasted no time getting to work for me. I had four lawyers before Todd Kime and I thought that I was fighting a losing battle. When Mr. Kime took over my workers compensation case I was receiving what I deserved. Todd and his staff worked endlessly for me. Any questions that I had, Todd and his staff had an answer or if they didn't, I had an answer by days end. Todd and his staff have worked hard for me and as of this day, Todd and his staff are there for me! From my heart I truly thank Todd Kime and his staff for fighting for everything that I deserve! If anyone needs a lawyer that will fight for everything you deserve, contact Mr. Todd Kime immediately!!! Thank you Todd and staff!!!

My take on the lawyer who is Todd Kime
He told me to call him Todd, but I call him Mr. Kime, because of what he has done for me. I got injured on the job and had to have surgery. The day of my surgery I was home laying in bed and my boss called me and asked if I was coming to work that day, no kidding. They knew exactly what was going on with me. I told him I just had surgery hours before which I had to be cut opened some to repair. Thats when I knew I would have trouble getting the pay that I should get while I am healing. My boss then called me again four days later Four! And asked again when I would be returning to work. My cut wasn't even healed yet. That's when I sought a lawyer and luckily some guy I knew told me about Todd Kime "THE ATTORNEY" I had to do basically nothing except give Todd permission to fight for me which he did and did well! If you need an attorney to get what you deserve from an injury or even just representation of practically any sort, I strongly suggest Mr. Kime. I would call Todd Kime a go-getter type of attorney ! He is definitely here to help you.

Response from Todd Kime April 7, 2016
We really appreciate the kind words, here at the Law Office of Todd G. Kime, but this the kind of work we do for all our clients... We work hard to expedite the already slow process... and we work hard for each and everyone of our clients to get claims allowed; amended to include diagnosed conditions to allow treatment to be approved; fight to get any requested treatment from our client's doctors approved, if the BWC denies the request. ( which WILL happen in every case eventually...). We also work hard to maximize any monetary value in our clients' claims; because there is TAX FREE money in each and every work comp claim! Call us.. we will work just as hard for you too!

The TRUTH!!!
When I was hurt on job last year, I called one of those fancy TV add law firms; after three weeks of, "lets wait and see what happens..." I was given Todd Kime's business card and gave him a call. The very next day, this guy had my employer onboard and working with us instead of ducking my phone calls looking for answers. He lead me step-by-step throughout the entire process; told me what "they" were going to do and what he would do if they did this or that. At no time did I feel like I was not well represented and I was able to relax and deal with my recovery because I KNEW he was going to take care of the rest. Todd Kime is the TRUTH!!!

Mr. Kime did an excellent job for me! He is a very good attorney with years and years of experience. That experience paid off for me. He and his staff where great! He explained the process.... which is a messy thing.. but he spelled it out for me. Got my claim allowed! got me my money for my lost time and then got more money for me after that. When my treatment was done/wrapping up.. I asked about a settlement. Mr. Kime explained the options.. the pros and the cons,, and I decided to settle and Todd did a fantastic job! Well done!! I was very happy! I would recommend Mr. Kime and his staff to anybody who wants a lawyer to fight for them!

No one does it better-- RW
Mr. Kime is by far the hardest working, respected, and professional attorney that I have ever used. In the six years that Todd has worked with me he has always made me feel like I was the most inportant client he has, and has always been there to guide me through the legal system. If your looking for an attorney to give you peace of mind thoughout the process consider talking to Todd.

Great Attorney! fought hard for me and won!
Mr. Kime was referred to us by one of his former clients... I think the "word of mouth" referrals are way better than what you may see on some ad on TV. And in this case it most certainly was! Mr. Kime and his staff of hard working young paralegals really did all they could to make sure I was aware of where my case stood.. when court appointment were to be scheduled and where. He let me know if I needed to be at the hearings... sometimes its better not to be there.. But Mr. Kime explained it all to me. He handled my case all the way though the entire process; he made sure my medical bills got paid.... AND.. at the end of it all.. Mr. Kime KNOWS how to maximize the value of his cases.. I was VERY happy with the outcome of my case! I highly recommend Mr Kime and his staff at Todd G. Kime & Associates!
