Under Oklahoma law, you are entitled to four basic benefits for an on-the-job injury (no matter who was at fault):
- Reasonable and necessary medical treatment
- Lost pay — 70 percent of your average weekly wages (subject to a maximum)
- Benefits for lasting disability, permanent damage to a part of your body, or scarring/disfigurement
- Vocational rehabilitation to retrain you for other work
WHAT’S THE CATCH? WHY DO I NEED A LAWYER?
The Oklahoma City law firm of Foshee & Yaffe Attorneys at Law has represented injured workers in Oklahoma since 1977. We know from experience that employers and their insurance companies use many ploys to limit workers’ compensation claims and thus limit the amount of recovery for the injured victim. Don’t be taken advantage of by your employer or their insurance company. Call our experienced injury attorneys at (405) 378-3033 for a consultation.
We represent employees in any type of work, including oil field accidents and injury and construction job site injury claims. If the negligence of a third party caused the accident, we can determine if you have grounds for a lawsuit above and beyond workers’ comp.
WE PROTECT ALL YOUR RIGHTS UNDER OKLAHOMA LAW:
You have the right to be treated by your own physician, even if your boss says you have to see the company’s “official” doctor.
We make sure you don’t lose your job for filing a claim or refusing to come back to work before you’re healed.
We can prove the causal relationship of an occupational illness, such as chemical exposure or repetitive stress injuries that develop over time.
Some insurance companies won’t tell you that you are entitled to lump-sum payments. We help our clients get properly rated for temporary total disability (TTD), permanent total disability (PTD) or permanent partial disability (PPD).
