  2. 2. Thomas Tootle Thomas Tootle founded the Law Offices of Thomas Tootle in 1995 as a firm dedicated to providing a voice for those injured in the course of employment. His experience includes jury trials, over fifty actions before the Supreme Court of Ohio, over 150 actions before the 10th District Court of Appeals, and weekly appearances on BWC matters before the Industrial Commission of Ohio.

  3. 3. Deposition A deposition is a question and answer session that takes place under oath, with a stenographic reporter taking down all that is said. It may be sometimes be tape recorded or videotaped. Sometimes it's referred to as an "examination before trial." A deposition is not done before a judge or jury, and it is not a trial. Its purpose is to allow the opposing side to ask you questions about your case. Your testimony will be recorded and may be sued against you at trial, so a deposition should be taken seriously. You should always meet with the lawyer representing prior to being deposed so that you may be prepared for the types of questions to expect. This preparation time should take as long as is necessary in order to prepare you for your testimony, so you should always be on time for your appointment.
  4. 4. Permanent Partial Disability Compensation for permanent partial disability is available to an injured worker has a permanent impairment that does not result in a total disability. For instance, if you have had work injury, but have returned to work, then you are eligible to apply for permanent partial disability. Permanent partial disability is much like a pain and suffering award in a personal injury claim. The main distinction, however, is that permanent partial is designed to compensate not for “pain and suffering” but rather for “impairment to earning capacity.” In most cases, permanent partial disability awards are paid in a single, lump sum, payment.
