Akron OH Work Injury, Disability & Personal Injury Law Firm
Our Offices Amid the Fighting Spirit of Akron, Ohio
The Northeast Ohio workplace injury attorneys of Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill Co., LPA, maintain a regional office in Akron, Ohio, some 50 miles due east from our home offices in Youngstown. Akron is the largest home to an HMMM office, with a population of about 198,500.
Akron is well-known historically as a Midwest industrial town. It’s been called the “Rubber Capital of the World,” due to Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, Firestone Tire and Rubber Company, Goodrich Corporation and General Tire all calling Akron home.
The decline of American industry that has hurt all of the Midwest affected Akron, too, but Akron did not sit still. As a Brookings Institute study declared, Akron is now more involved in knowledge production than goods production. The city has leveraged its central Midwest location, the University of Akron’s highly rated polymer science and engineering program, neighboring Kent State University’s Liquid Crystals Institute, and the vision and leadership of city officials to drive economic development in Akron and Summit County.
More than 150 Fortune 500 companies now reside in the Akron / Summit County region.There are also 400 polymer-related companies, and Akron is now known as the center of the “Polymer Valley.” Meanwhile, Akron has not forgotten that the availability of arts and entertainment raises the quality of life, and has invested in this realm as well.
As attorneys who fight for injured or disabled individuals and their families, we appreciate the Akron spirit of not giving in. Just as Akron has maximized its assets, we utilize our 150 plus years of experience, investments in technology and commitment to client satisfaction to guide clients dealing with claims for Ohio workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability.
Our office is located at 39 E. Market Street, Suite 301, in downtown Akron, near where much of the city’s redevelopment has taken place. We’re just off of East Main Street, near the John S. Knight Center and the University of Akron and around the corner from the Industrial Commission where workers’ compensation hearings are held. The IC is located at the Oliver R. Ocasek Government Building, 161 S High Street, Suite 301, Akron, OH 44308.

Akron, Ohio, Makes a Strong Entry into the 21st Century
Over several years at the turn of the 21st century, City of Akron leaders made investments that today bring hours of entertainment to hundreds of thousands of Akron residents and visitors, while contributing millions of dollars to the local economy:
- The John S. Knight Convention Center, 1995: The $33 million, 129,000-square-foot facility provides a conference center, exhibit space, a multi-purpose lobby, banquet hall, and meeting rooms. The Knight Center is home to the Rubber City Roller Girls, Akron’s roller derby team.
- Canal Park Baseball Stadium, 1997: The $30 million, 8,500- seat ballpark is home to the Akron Rubber Ducks, a Double A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. An entertainment district, including several restaurants, has emerged around the stadium.
- Akron Civic Theatre, reopened 2002: The city put more than $19 million into the historic 1929 theater to bring it up to modern performance standards.
- Lock 3 Park, 2003: The former Ohio-Erie Canal site downtown was resurrected as a park with an amphitheater that hosts weekend concerts, festivals and community events, including the City of Akron’s official 4th of July fireworks display.
- Akron-Summit County Public Library,reopened 2004: A $51 million expansion and renovation nearly doubled the size of the existing structure.
- Akron Art Museum, expanded 2007: A major expansion added a 50,000-square-foot building to the existing museum, which is in a former post office built in 1899. Several galleries, restaurants, shops and nightclubs have opened nearby to create an arts district in downtown Akron.
More recently, the city’s historic Firestone Stadium underwent $1.5 million of renovations and reopened in 2015. The historic stadium, built in 1925, is home to the Akron Racers, a women’s fast-pitch professional softball team, and hosts collegiate and other amateur games and tournaments.
The recently opened Lock 4 Park downtown host festivals and features the sight of multiple waterfalls created by the Ohio-Erie Canal lock and brick facades of some of the oldest buildings in the city.At night, multi-hued LED lighting reflects off of the cascades and makes the historic buildings and pedestrian bridge over Route 59 glow. Bright white lights twinkle from trees planted around the park’s perimeter.
Injury Attorneys Fighting for Akron, Ohio, Workers
Akron is a vibrant Northeast Ohio city that Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill Co., LPA, is proud to be a part of. However, we know that members of an active city’s workforce are vulnerable to accident and injury. When working men and women are badly hurt in occupational accidents, the rush to move ahead should not leave their needs behind.
The attorneys of Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill Co. work to obtain workers’ compensation benefits and other financial assistance for workers who have been injured on the job.We fight to make sure their needs are not brushed aside by employers, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation or other elements of a system arrayed against the little guy.
Additionally, Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill, Co., LPA, assists those who are unable to work due to a physical or mental impairment. Social Security disability programs were created just for these people and HMMM wants to be sure benefits are paid to those that qualify.
Our attorneys have a combined 150 years of experience practicing law and our firm has provided trusted legal advice across Northeast Ohio since 1985. If you have suffered a workplace injury or need Social Security or VA benefits in Akron or elsewhere in Summit County, Ohio, we will fight for you.
