What Types Of Workers' Compensation Benefits Are Available?

If you have been hurt on the job, you are probably wondering what types of benefits are available. It is important to work with a team of attorneys you can trust to help you get the best benefits package available.

At Dawkins & Gowens Law Firm in Oklahoma City, we have decades of combined experience helping clients throughout Oklahoma who have suffered on-the-job injuries. We can walk you through the process and make sure you get the compensation you need.

We help clients obtain all types of workers' compensation benefits, including:

  • Temporary disability: Temporary disability — as the name suggests — involves injuries that are not supposed to last long term. Workers' compensation in these cases is meant to help injured workers through the time of missed or limited work until they can resume normal activities.
  • Permanent partial disability: If you are partially disabled, but the injuries will last long term, you could be eligible for permanent partial disability.
  • Permanent total disability: This is the most comprehensive type of injury benefits package. If you are completely disabled and unable to return to work, and the injuries are expected to last a long time, the determination is permanent total disability. Our lawyers have successfully obtained permanent total disability benefits for clients, and we can help you.

Whatever your situation or the severity of your injuries, our lawyers can help. We have experience helping clients throughout Oklahoma with all types of benefit claims.

Other Forms Of Workers' Compensation Benefits

For some forms of disability, there are vocational helps available to train injured workers into other jobs and give them a head start to continue their careers in other directions. Vocational training, job placement services and vocational education are often available to help you re-build your career.
