An on-the-job injury can present a number of setbacks. It can affect your ability to provide for your family and complete day-to-day activities. If you have been injured at work, it is important to act quickly. Acting quickly will ensure that your rights are protected.
At my Oklahoma law firm, I represent individuals from all work industries in workers’ comp claims. I am attorney Kevin Rehl, and I offer my clients more than 24 years of legal experience. As an experienced Oklahoma City workers’ compensation attorney, I have an in-depth understanding of how a workers’ comp claim must be filed and how to make certain that my clients receive the maximum amount of compensation available for their injuries.
Types of Disability Payments in Workers’ Compensation Claims
There are several types of payments that an individual may be entitled to depending on the type and extent of the injury. These include:
- Total Temporary Disability (TTD)
- Permanent Partial Disability (PPD)
- Permanent Total Disability (PTD)
It is important to make certain that you notify your employer of the accident. Without informing your employer, your claim may not be successful. While most employers take appropriate action to make certain that workplace injuries are handled appropriately, it is still in your best interests to contact a lawyer.
I will file the claim on your behalf, work out any issues with your employer and/or the insurance company, and help you get to a doctor who can appropriately treat your injuries. I am highly knowledgeable of workers’ compensation law and understand how to prepare a claim in the best way possible.
