Benefits of Workers' Compensation
Oklahoma City Workers' Comp Attorney
There are a number of different advantages that an injured employee may experience under workers' compensation laws. Injured workers have the right to prompt medical treatment and to financial benefits for any work-related injury or illness. This may even include an incident that was linked to the injured employee's own carelessness or behavior. Without having to prove specific negligence on the part of the employer or another party, a worker can seek workers' compensation benefits. The only requirement is that the injury is related to the employee's job.
At the Law Offices of Stipe & Belote, we work to protect our clients' rights and interests in the process of filing for workers' compensation and handling any disputes that may arise. We will seek the full benefits you may be entitled to, including:
- Medical expenses - reimbursement for all medical care, including medical supplies and medication as well as travel expenses.
- Temporary disability - a percentage of your weekly wage while you are temporarily unable to work due to your injuries.
- Permanent disability - benefits provided if you will be permanently disabled, the amount of which will vary depending on the extent of disability and other factors.
- Vocational rehabilitation - you may qualify for job retraining to help you gain the skills you need to enter a new field.
- Death benefits - if you lost a loved one in any type of work accident or other incident related to work, you may be able to recover benefits for burial costs, medical care and a percentage of your loved one's weekly wages.
