People in Youngstown Work Hard. We Help When They Get Hurt.
Like workers throughout Ohio, almost all injured employees in Youngstown are entitled to recover workers’ compensation benefits if they are injured or become ill while on the job. Ohio workers’ compensation law provides these benefits through the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) and the state Industrial Commission. Fault does not play a role in whether you can collect benefits. You are supposed to be paid regardless of whether you shoulder any blame for the injury or illness you have suffered.
Because many employers in Youngstown and elsewhere in Ohio contract with the state for workers’ compensation insurance, there is often more bureaucracy if you have a claim. In Youngstown, if you are to receive the benefits you deserve, you usually need to fight a system that is arrayed against you.
Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill, Co., LPA, helps injured workers in Youngstown seek the workers’ compensation they deserve. We know the Ohio workers’ compensation system. We can make it work for you.
If you have been injured in an accident while on the job in Youngstown, or have come down with a debilitating illness because of your workplace environment or exposure, you undoubtedly qualify for workers’ compensation benefits.
However, the system places several obstacles between you and a benefit payment. The first is a strict deadline for filing a workers’ compensation claim.
Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill, Co., LPA can compile, file and defend your workers’ compensation claim in Youngstown, but it is highly beneficial to you to start work as soon as possible. If you need compensation for a workplace injury in Youngstown, we want you to have it — all of it.

New Attractions, New Money in Youngstown
Our offices are just blocks from Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley, the $250 million resort that offers thoroughbred racing, casino games, shows and dining. Since opening in September 2014, Hollywood Gaming has generated the most revenue per video lottery terminal of the state’s seven racinos and expanded in 2015.
Youngstown’s entertainment bookend to Hollywood Gaming is the Covelli Centre downtown, a multi-purpose arena opened in 2005, which hosts world-class events, concerts, family shows, and sporting events. The Covelli Centre is also home to the Youngstown Phantoms of the U.S. Hockey League, the country’s top junior hockey league.
It’s not all about playing, though. Youngstown is also resurrecting its history as a city of steel, with the Vallourec steel mill, a $1 billion-dollar, state-of-the-art facility, built here thanks to the area’s the Utica and Marcellus shale formations.
Vallourec, considered the largest investment in the state since General Motors opened a plant in 1966 in nearby Lordstown, now employs more than 650 people. More jobs were created when a Vallourec sister company began production at an $80 million pipe-threading plant in May 2016.
Also downtown, the Youngstown Business Incubator serves a 21-county region of northeast Ohio, with a focus on Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties. Since beginning to provide office and lab space to information technology entrepreneurs and startups in 2000, the YBI has been named No. 1 for university-associated incubators in North America and No. 2 in the world for 2015 by UBI Global, an international index for business incubation programs.
Youngstown-based Turning Technologies is perhaps the YBI’s biggest success story, having started with just three employees at the incubator. Now the company of more than 250 employees is a global leader in learning engagement and tech assessment services for the education market.
In June 2016, a local, state, public and private partnership cut the ribbon on a $100 million, 225,000-square-foot Matalco aluminum-billet company and metal recycling and processing business in the community of Lordstown. Meanwhile, small businesses are moving into and investing in the South Avenue corridor in Youngstown and rejuvenating that area.
Leisure Living in Youngstown, Ohio
For those who need a break from work or school, Youngstown offers one of the country’s premier metropolitan park systems in its Mill Creek Metroparks. In addition to a public golf course, a multi-sport recreation area, lakes and ponds, and more, prized properties of the park system include:
- Fellows Riverside Gardens, a free 12-acre public display garden and the D. and Velma Davis Education & Visitor Center.

- Ford Nature Center, the park system headquarters housed in a handsome stone mansion donated to the Park in 1968 by the children of the late Judge John W. Ford.

Our Attorneys Fight for the Youngstown Community
Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill, Co., LPA has roots in Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley. Our firm’s three founding lawyers were already legal veterans of the area when they decided to become partners in 1985.
But mostly we are trusted legal advocates for the people of Youngstown who are facing hard paths in their lives due to workplace injury, the inability to work due to a physical or mental impairment, or the loss of a loved one. We are Northeastern Ohio attorneys, working to ensure that programs established to help the injured worker — like the Ohio Workers’ Compensation Bureau — and the disabled –Social Security Disability — work as they are intended.
We fight the system on behalf of the injured and disabled. They are our neighbors, and members of our Youngstown community.
