Cindy is a wonderful and very professional receptionist and a absolute delight. As a businessman myself she gives a great first impression. She could not have made my visit any easier.

Mimi and lisa had a wonderful attitude, were very professional and I received service from all three of these young women over and above any expectations I previously had. I highly recommend the entire law firm of Colbert, Cooper and Hill.

Do I Have a Case?

Workers’ comp claims can be complex and confusing. Each case is different and may involve unique injuries and circumstances. Still, the common thread is that they’re related to your on-the-job duties and injuries or illnesses that occurred as a result.

If you get hurt at work, but your situation doesn’t align with any of the factors listed below, we still recommend contacting an Oklahoma City workers’ comp attorney to see if you have a case.

  • Burns
  • Concussions
  • Eye injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Amputations
  • Strains and sprains
  • Bruises and lacerations
  • Neck, back, and spine injuries
  • Cumulative injuries from repeated stress over time

  • Industrial accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Machinery accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Accidents resulting from hazardous work environments

However, worker’s comp doesn’t cover certain injuries and accidents. These include but are not limited to:

  • Stress or psychiatric disorders
  • Injuries caused by fighting
  • Injuries that happen while committing a crime
  • Injuries that occur while under the influence of drugs and alcohol
  • Injuries that occur while violating company safety policies
  • Self-inflicted injuries

If you get hurt at work while performing your regular duties, you likely have a case for workers’ compensation. Let’s look at some of the factors our Oklahoma City workers’ comp lawyers will use to review your case.

Every personal injury case, including workers’ compensation, has a time limit called a statute of limitations. For example, in Oklahoma, you must file a workers’ compensation claim within two years from the date of injury or death.

It’s important to discuss your case with an experienced workers’ comp attorney. Colbert Cooper Hill Attorneys will help ensure you don’t miss any critical deadlines. So you can focus on what is most important: Recovering.

How Can a Lawyer Help?

Workers’ comp claims can be challenging and complex. Fighting your case alone can leave you at a disadvantage, so it’s best to enlist the help of an experienced workers’ comp attorney. Your Oklahoma City workers’ compensation lawyers at The Wolf Pack™ can help you seek benefits you may not even have realized you were eligible to receive. We’ll gather evidence, field calls from insurance companies and defense attorneys, and find additional compensation you may not know you deserve.

Most importantly, we will be your loyal advocate and stand up for your rights. Our Oklahoma City workers’ comp lawyers will stand by you every step of the way, helping you seek the maximum amount for your losses.

What Are Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

 

Workers’ compensation exists to cover your medical expenses, including doctor’s visits, medical procedures, therapy sessions, medication, and other costs related to treating your illness or injury. They also cover any equipment required to recover, such as a wheelchair or crutches.

Workers’ comp may also provide disability benefits if your injury or illness limits or prevents your ability to work, replacing a portion of your lost wages. They fall into four categories depending on the severity of your condition.

  • Temporary Partial Disability – If you’re still able to work, but your disability causes you to earn less than your usual wages, you may be able to receive temporary partial benefits.
  • Temporary Total Disability – This type of disability benefit may be available if you need to take more than five days off from work. When you return to work, or your doctor determines you’ve reached maximum medical improvement, these benefits will cease.
  • Permanent Partial Disability – If you’ve suffered a permanent disability that partially hinders your ability to work, you may be entitled to permanent partial disability benefits for a certain amount of time specified by the state.
  • Permanent Total Disability – If your injury or illness is so severe that it permanently prevents you from returning to work, you may be entitled to benefits for the duration of your disability.

Death benefits cover the dependents of someone who dies on the job. They allow the loved ones the deceased leaves behind to maintain a certain standard of life and may even cover funeral expenses.

How to File a Workers’ Comp Claim in Oklahoma

Report Your Injury

As soon as you are injured, immediately notify your employer. They may ask you to answer questions or fill out a form describing the incident and your injuries. Answer as accurately as you can and return any paperwork to your employer as soon as possible. Never wait to report an injury, as it could seriously jeopardize your ability to receive compensation.

Seek Medical Treatment

You should also seek medical attention for your work-related injury or illness as soon as possible. Always notify your doctor that your injury/illness is related to your job so that they can include an assessment of your capabilities in the workplace. This information can be vitally important later on if your employer’s insurance company contests your claim and you need medical evidence.

Workers’ Comp FAQs

You aren’t legally required to have a workers’ comp lawyer, but an experienced lawyer, like Colbert Cooper Hill Attorneys, can give you the best shot of fighting for your benefits. In some cases, insurance companies refuse to pay injured employees the benefits they deserve. So if you have suffered a work-related illness or injury and have trouble obtaining benefits, our attorneys are here to help.

Workers’ comp covers almost every employee in Oklahoma. However, there are rare exceptions. If your employer says you are not covered, contact our experienced workers’ comp lawyers for help.

At first, you must see one of the doctors on a list given to you by your employer. Later you may be able to change doctors. Your workers’ comp attorney will guide you through the proper medical steps while ensuring you receive the highest level of care.

Workers’ comp covers all medical bills and 70% of your average weekly salary; the state sets a maximum limit for workers’ comp that gets adjusted every year. Temporary benefits last for 156 weeks. Permanent benefits last 15 years or until you reach the maximum retirement age, whichever comes first.

If your employer fails to report your injury or your benefits get denied, you may file Form 9 to challenge the denial. However, navigating the appeals process can be difficult and time-consuming. That’s why we always recommend getting help from our team of workers’ comp attorneys.

A surviving spouse and each dependent child can receive a lump sum payment, weekly benefits based on the wages earned by the employee at the time of their death, and funeral costs. However, if the spouse remarries, benefits stop. In addition, when children reach 18 (23 if enrolled full time in college), benefits stop unless they are mentally or physically unable to support themselves.
