Disability, Serious Injury and Death
When an employee can no longer work any occupation due to a work-related injury or sickness, they may qualify for workers' compensation disability benefits. If a worker dies due to their injuries, then their surviving spouse and dependents may also qualify for workers' compensation benefits and funeral costs.
Disability and Death Benefits
Work-related injuries that impair or limit your ability to work may qualify for permanent or partial disability benefits.
If you've lost a loved one due to a serious, work-related injury, then the deceased's dependents would qualify for death or survivor benefits. Our workers' comp attorneys have decades of experience in helping injured workers and their families file their claims and appeals in the Oklahoma's workers' compensation system.
Permanent Partial Disability or Permanent Total Disability
Qualifying for permanent partial disability or permanent total disability requires that your disability or impairment be rated by a medical doctor. An Oklahoma workers’ comp lawyer can make sure your disability or impairment has been rated properly to maximize the benefits you deserve to cover medical bills, rehabilitation and lost wages.
If a doctor decides that you’re able to return to work but you have a disability, you may also be eligible for permanent partial disability benefits. The length and amount of those benefits is decided by the rating the doctor assigns to your disability.
If on the other hand, the doctor determines that you are unable to return to workforce, you may qualify for permanent total disability benefits.
This is why it's so important to retain an experienced workers' comp attorney to ensure that your disability is rated properly.

If your spouse, parent or other family member died from a job-related injury, you may be eligible for survivor benefits as a dependent.
Survivor benefits are available to the worker’s spouse, children, or other dependents who relied on the worker for financial support. If a worker has no spouse or children, other dependents may also qualify to receive benefits.
Workers' comp may also cover actual funeral costs for the worker.
