Overview

After starting his career with the Ohio Industrial Commission, Ron has been serving Reminger’s diverse workers’ compensation and occupational injury clientele since 1995.  In that time Ron has handled the various types of disputes involving occupational accidents and injuries.  These experiences include administrative hearings, trials to verdict, appeals before the Ohio Courts of Appeal and the Ohio Supreme Court, and OSHA citations.  In addition, Ron provides counsel to employers, third-party administrators and service providers concerning their risk management programs and their relationship with Ohio’s Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.  These issues include coverage and classification disputes, self-insurance acquisition and compliance, and provider certification.

Ron’s experiences have allowed him to handle claims from injury reporting through trial, including taking over a case and obtaining a unanimous defense verdict reversing an award under Ohio’s pre-substantial aggravation subjective standard.  Ron’s risk management work on behalf of our clients has also resulted in substantial cost savings, including one instance where he recovered $1.4 million from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation for overcharged premiums.  

As a leader in our firm Ron is the managing partner of our Columbus office, he co-chairs our workers’ compensation practice group, and serves on the firm’s managing and executive committees.  Ron has also been recognized as a specialist in workers’ compensation law by the Ohio Supreme Court and is peer rated by Martindale Hubble, Best’s and Super Lawyers.
