Do you have a claim to vocational rehabilitation benefits?

When you are hurt at work, it can have a significant impact on your life, especially your finances. Fortunately, there are workers' compensation benefits available for individuals who suffered injuries in the workplace or became ill due to occupational exposure. These benefits cover your medical bills, a portion of your lost wages and more. 

Even experienced motorcyclists face multiple deadly hazards

If you enjoy taking to the Oklahoma roads on your motorcycle, you might be aware of the many hazards that could threaten your life. While biking can be so much fun, it can also be dangerous, regardless of how experienced you are. Although many people immediately assume a biker's negligence when they hear about a motorcycle accident, most such incidents involve negligent motorists.

Can your job cause Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome?

While some safety hazards threaten Oklahoma workers in general, others are limited to specific occupations. If you work in the logging industry or as a road construction worker, you might be at risk of developing HAVS -- Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome. This condition threatens the health of any worker who handles vibrating equipment or tools.

Did you suffer injuries due to a common work-related accident?

Injuries on the job can happen to anyone. You may have thought that your duties did not pose much risk to you or that the safety measures in place would prevent you from getting hurt. Unfortunately, this notion does not always prove true, and you -- like other Oklahoma workers -- could easily end up suffering a serious injury. Even if you take precautions to avoid putting yourself at unnecessary risk, those actions may not be enough.

Internal bleeding is nothing to ignore

A car accident can be traumatic, even if you and your vehicle suffer seemingly minimal damage. You may reject the fuss and wave away medical assistance, but this may be a mistake for many reasons. For example, having a report of receiving medical attention after an accident may assist you in any future insurance claims or lawsuits that result from the crash. More importantly, however, is the possibility of unseen damage to your body.

What types of benefits can I get if I am hurt at work?

If you experienced an injury in the workplace, you know how overwhelming it is when you are not able to work and earn enough to support your family and pay for your medical bills. This is the reason why workers' compensation exists, yet actually obtaining the benefits you deserve can be complex and frustrating.

A scaffold fall? You might be entitled to more than workers' comp

If you are a construction worker in Oklahoma, you will naturally spend much time on scaffolding structures. One thing completely out of your control is that you have to rely on those who manufactured them to follow the necessary safety guidelines. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration prescribes strict regulations that cover the terrain requirements along with the standard of materials used for the scaffold, the distance from power lines and more.

Even minor crashes can cause life-changing injuries

Victims of car accidents in Oklahoma might have learned that even minor auto accidents can be traumatic. If you went through such an ordeal, you would know that physical trauma exacerbates the mental distress of all those who are involved. Another aspect that you might have to face at this difficult time is the financial impact and your ability to meet obligations such as mortgage payments and providing for your family while being incapacitated by your injuries.

Whiplash: minor injury with a major impact

While some car accident injuries are obviously serious, such as traumatic amputation, others may not be so obvious. Whiplash is a rather common type of car accident injury that many categorize as minor, though it can continue to have a major impact on an Oklahoma victim's life long into the future. 

How the SSA decides if you meet the definition of disabled

A disability is a threat to your financial well-being, but you may be able to secure certain benefits through the Social Security Administration. If you are unable to work, you may believe that you have a valid claim to disability benefits, but you will find it beneficial to fully understand the qualifications for securing this type of financial support.
