Representing Oklahoma’s Injured Workers
Suffering an injury at the workplace can be a devastating and traumatic experience; financially, emotionally, and physically. When you sustain an injury due to the negligence of another person on the job, you deserve to receive compensation. If you have been involved in an accident and suffered an injury that is going to keep you from working for either a short or long period of time, you may be eligible to file for workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation is designed to protect employees who have been injured in a workplace accident without being at fault directly. These cases can be tricky, as employers oftentimes try to avoid paying for numerous reasons. Because of the difficulty and sensitivity of workers’ compensation cases, it is in your best interest to retain the services of an attorney from Atkins & Markoff. We will fight hard to ensure you receive financial compensation for your lost wages and medical bills, regardless of how long you are out of work.
Types of Workers’ Compensation
If you have been injured on the workplace and it is serious enough to cause you to miss work for a period of time, you may be able to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation is awarded through your employer’s insurance and is designed for individuals who will be out of work for 12 months or less. On the other hand, disability benefits are awarded to individuals who have been injured at the workplace and are unable to perform their job duties in the same capacity. Temporary and permanent disability benefits are both available, and will be determined upon evaluation from your local physician and several other factors. Additionally, attorneys at Atkins & Markoff handle a variety of unique workers’ compensation vases, such as those under the Multiple Injury Trust Fund (MITF). We also represent individuals who are interested in enrolling in a vocational rehabilitation program, which is designed to help people relearn the skills they need to maintain a job.
