Overview

The verdict is in: Scott Gedeon gets great trial results for his clients.

He has spent his career defending the rights of companies—from small family held businesses to Fortune 500 global enterprises—and protecting their interests in the courtroom. Trial work is the lifeblood of Scott’s practice, as he has obtained several defense verdicts for employers in high exposure cases involving claims of serious workplace injury and disability. 

Outside the courtroom, Scott maintains an active workers’ compensation defense practice helping employers in Ohio and across the nation. He has been involved in hundreds of workers’ compensation appeals related to allegations of occupational injury and disease, with an emphasis on the healthcare, manufacturing, restaurant, food service and retail industries.

He also regularly counsels employers on a broad range of workplace safety issues including Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance as well as counseling employers on proactive measures they can take to mitigate workplace violence and accident litigation. 

Scott was recognized in 2017 and 2018 by Ohio Super Lawyers for labor and employment.
