Workers’ Compensation And Social Security Disability Lawyer In Salem, Ohio

A Proud Heritage To Emulate In Salem, Ohio

As Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill Co., LPA, has sought to expand its legal services to injured workers in northeastern Ohio, we opened offices in Salem, Ohio.

Salem is 20 miles (30 minutes) southwest of Youngstown, and spans the border of Columbiana and Mahoning counties in northeastern Ohio. The Salem area, which includes the city of Salem and the surrounding townships of Perry, Goshen, Green and Butler, had a population of 30,409 in the 2010 census.

Salem was founded and settled by the Friends religious group (“Quakers”) in 1806. This affiliation informed the city’s active participation in the abolition and women’s rights movements of the 19th century.

We work to emulate the determination to stand up for what’s right that is Salem’s heritage. Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill Co., LPA, helps victims of workplace injuries and the disabled get the benefits they deserve and have been promised by law.

We fight the system from our offices at ; phone 330-974-1231. If you have been injured in the workplace or are unable to work due to a disability, contact our Ohio personal injury attorneys for a free legal consultation about seeking workers’ compensation or Social Security Disability assistance.

Salem, like other towns in northeastern Ohio, was a stop on the Underground Railroad in the mid-1800s. Homes on Salem’s main streets served as “stations” with secret rooms and other hiding places to conceal runaway slaves as they made their way to Canada and freedom. The Western Headquarters for the AntiSlavery Association was in Salem as well.

In April 1850, Salem was the site of the first women’s rights convention held in the State of Ohio. It was two years after the first women’s rights convention in the U.S. was held by another group of Quakers in Seneca Falls, New York.

After the Civil War, Salem turned toward reconstructing the country, as did other towns in Ohio and the nation. Products like Deming Co. pumps, the W.H. Mullins Co.’s metal products, and Salem China Company’s dishware established Salem’s reputation as a home of durable goods manufacturers.

Today, more than 75 manufacturing and industrial services firms currently operate in the City of Salem and the surrounding area. The Salem Tourism Advisory Board advises that Salem-made products include:

  • Ham and bacon
  • Molded plastics
  • Electric furnaces
  • Pumps
  • Rolling steel mill components
  • Hydraulic valves
  • Plumbing fixtures
  • Car and truck parts
  • Furniture
  • Machine tools and dies
  • Wood and coal stoves
  • Labeling equipment
  • Newspapers
  • Aluminum sign blanks
  • Corrugated boxes
  • Vehicle ramps and jacks.

Salem continues to expand its economic base with the Salem Area Sustainable Opportunity Development Center — the SOD Center. It works to develop and promote a rich sustainable entrepreneurial environment for the Salem area that supports new startups, existing businesses and outside enterprises looking for a new home.

In 2015, the efforts of the SOD Center’s directors resulted in expansion of Salem Welding, the purchase of R.H. Homeworks to keep it in Salem, the opening of Lib’s Market in Salem’s historic district, the purchase of a building by a printing company, the opening of Kustamoto Inc., and the opening of the Holiday Inn Express. Projects in 2015 resulted in 28 new jobs and 26 jobs retained in the city.
