For more than three decades, Doug Spiker has focused his practice on the defense of employers in Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance and workers' compensation claims. He provides advice and counsel based on his acquired knowledge of each client’s business practices and goals, taking into account their operations, personnel, products, and services to guide the development of proactive and preventative programs that help to avoid legal repercussions down the road. However, if workplace injuries do occur, Doug has extensive experience representing employers before the Ohio Industrial Commission and in the courts of Ohio at the state and appellate levels. His representation includes employers fighting Violation of Specific Safety Requirement (VSSR) allegations, as well as all related litigation. He also handles rating, classification, and premium issues before the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation Adjudication Committee. Doug’s clients span a number of industries, including health care, retail, manufacturing, and construction, and range in size from family owned businesses to Fortune 500 companies. In addition to his responsibilities as legal counsel to his clients, Doug actively educates third party administrators, clients, and various trade and bar associations on numerous workers’ compensation topics through writing and speaking engagements across Ohio.
