Compensation For Workplace Injuries
At Maples, Nix & Diesselhorst, we are skilled in identifying and pursuing all available forms of compensation for workplace injury victims.
We can help you seek compensation to cover your losses, including medical expenses and lost time at work. Your options for compensation include:
- Workers’ compensation benefits — Depending on the circumstances of your workplace injury, you may be eligible for workers’ comp benefits to cover medical expenses, temporary disability or permanent disability.
- Social Security Disability benefits — The Social Security Administration may award you monetary benefits if your work injury prevents you from returning to work. A knowledgeable attorney can help you pursue these benefits and maximize your overall recovery.
- Third-party claims — If a negligent person or entity, such as an unsafe driver, manufacturer of dangerous equipment or co-worker, contributed to your injury, it may be appropriate to bring a lawsuit.
The laws governing liability and workers’ compensation in Oklahoma are very complex. They can be rife with pitfalls and challenges for injured workers and even less-experienced attorneys. It is essential to work with an attorney who is familiar with not only the law, but also the procedures and nuances of Oklahoma courts.
To ensure that your work injury claim is handled properly, trust your case to lawyers with decades of experience and a strong record of defense — like the lawyers of Maples, Nix & Diesselhorst.
