There is a solution to the problem of appeals in the Ohio Workmen's Compensation Act. Permit the administrative officers who are well trained and have many years of experience to determine the facts and law with court appeals on questions of law only. Since Ohio is a State Fund operation, hearing officers probably should not be responsibleto the Bureau of Workmen's Compensation. This alliance could affect their judgment since they must defend the insurance fund against any claim which is, in their opinion, unlawful.
