Workers’ Compensation And Bankruptcy
Cincinnati Workers’ Compensation And Bankruptcy Lawyers
Bankruptcy Workers’ Comp Attorneys
People usually fall behind on their bills due to problems outside of their control. For example, if you are injured at work and are unable to continue supporting yourself and your family, you must be undergoing extreme financial hardship. Even if you are receiving workers’ compensation benefits, they do not cover all of the wages you earned before you were hurt. If you are living with a reduced income and are unable to pay all of your bills, you may be considering filing for bankruptcy. Of course, you may have concerns about whether your workers’ compensation benefits are exempt from bankruptcy.
For years, people across Southwest Ohio have looked to the lawyers of Minnillo Law Group Co., LPA, for skilled representation in bankruptcy. Our law firm helps injured working men and women get the bankruptcy relief they need.
Generally speaking, workers’ compensation benefits are exempt from bankruptcy under Ohio law. Therefore, these benefits cannot be taken to pay your creditors. There may be exceptions to these laws if you already received a lump-sum workers’ compensation payment. Therefore, it is important to discuss your situation with lawyers who understand both workers’ compensation and bankruptcy. Our law firm also represents injured workers in workers’ compensation claims. As a result, we fully understand the laws in both of these fields. We are prepared to help you develop a plan that protects your workers’ compensation benefits while also giving you the fresh financial start you need.
We are a law firm and a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.
