Oklahoma Workers' Compensation Lawyer
Advocating for Injured Workers for More Than a Century Combined
Few things are more nerve wracking than suffering an accident or injury that restricts your ability to work. When these accidents occur on the job, however, you can file for workers' compensation with your human resources department. Workers' compensation is paid to employees who are injured in workplace accidents that they had no part in causing. Such compensation is covered through the employer's insurance, since workers' compensation coverage is required of nearly every employer in Oklahoma. This prevents workers from suffering serious injury only to lose their ability to work and suffer financially, as well.

Our lawyers understand the intricacies of workers' compensation law and strive to help each client understand, as well.

Anyone who has been severely injured or disabled in a workplace accident should not hesitate to set up a free case evaluation with an Oklahoma attorney from our firm. We have handled all types of workers' compensation and disability cases to satisfactory results.
Workers Compensation Cases We Handle
If your injury is serious enough that you need to take time off of work, but will be back within a year, you may be eligible to receive workers' compensation through your employer's insurance. If you are not expected to return for at least a year, however, you may be eligible for disability compensation. Disability means that your injury has severely reduced your work capacity or has caused you to be unable to return to any kind of work at all. If you are evaluated and meet the requirements for disability, you could receive either
temporary disability or
Our firm also handles unique workers' compensation cases, such as those which qualify for the Oklahoma Multiple Injury Trust Fund (MITF). The MITF is available to cover the damages of those who have suffered two or more workplace accidents and have ultimately become permanently disabled. Our firm can also help you pursue
vocational rehabilitation if your injury has affected your ability to pursue a career or obtain a decent job. We also help clients report any
change in condition that could affect their compensation or disability, and we fight for the
rights of injured workers who have been
denied workers' compensation.
