Damages from Personal Injury Accidents
Victims of personal injury accidents can suffer from the following damages:
- Medical expenses

- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses (if the accident resulted in death)
- Mental anguish
- Physical pain
- Loss of inheritance (if the accident resulted in death)

Explaining a Personal Injury Claim
Failure to act with reasonable care results in injury, so the victim may file a personal injury claim against the negligent party. This is a type of civil action filed with the intent of seeking damages for harm suffered.
The claim can compensate for a victim’s medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and non-economic losses like pain and suffering.

Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability Attorneys
It is common for workers across all industries in Oklahoma City to suffer injuries while on the job. Construction workers are injured most often and severely, but even office workers are at risk. If you have been harmed at work, you can likely file a workers’ compensation claim by which you can get your medical expenses covered.
Unfortunately, there are times when injured workers have trouble procuring the benefits to which they are entitled. In these situations, the assistance of an Oklahoma City workers’ compensation attorney can make a huge difference.
If your injuries are so severe that you may not be able to go back to work, you still have options. Your attorney can help navigate the Social Security disability system to ensure you receive compensation moving forward and continue supporting yourself and your family. You do not need to suffer alone. We can help.
Tension with Employers
Employers don’t want to pay out workers’ compensation claims, no matter how legitimate. The last thing an injured worker wants is to fight for the benefits they are entitled to.
Employers may request additional information from workers, like an independent medical examination (IME). This is an “impartial” medical examination from a doctor the employer or insurance company selects.
If workers do not participate in this examination, their compensation claim may be denied. If they participate in this examination, the doctor may question the credibility of their injuries and report their findings to the insurance company. In any case, the worker’s benefits are in jeopardy.
Representation for Employment Disputes
Our Oklahoma City personal injury attorneys understand that not all injuries are physical. If you are the victim of discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, or wrongful termination, we can help.
We also represent employees who do not receive the wages to which they are entitled, engage in whistleblower actions, or are injured in a contract breach dispute.
