Workers Compensation

Defiance County Public Safety Services is the reporting agency for county employees who are injured while on duty.

The agency also works closely with CompManagement to determine if additional information is required to expedite the claim for the employee.

We also investigate and follow-up with the department supervisor to determine the cause and look at corrective measures to keep accidents from happening again.

We are responsible for monitoring all county department claims.

We are the coordinating agency between the Bureau of Workers Compensation and CompManagement, the County’s third party administrator. For more information, please call 419-782-1130.

Defiance County prohibits discrimination in all its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, and where applicable, sex, marital status, familial status, parental status, religion, sexual orientation or political beliefs.
