Our Areas of Focus
Everyday life poses countless hazards that are only avoided through the care and attention of other motorists, property owners, manufacturers, and other parties. When negligence results in injury, victims deserve to be compensated for the losses they suffer. While these losses can have immediate short-term ramifications, they can also change your life permanently. In the worst case, a personal injury can lead to wrongful death, leaving a family to grieve the loss of a loved one while picking up the pieces and figuring out how to move forward.
If you have been injured in a car accident or another situation caused by someone else's negligence, the personal injury attorneys at Chiaf Law are here to stand up for your rights. Insurance companies are not your friend in these matters. Put your trust in a lawyer that will settle for nothing less than what you deserve, even if that means taking your personal injury case to court.
Workers' compensation was put in place to protect workers who are injured on the job. When someone suffers an injury at work, they often find themselves temporarily unable to work while they recover. Workers with more severe injuries may be unable to perform as they did before their injury, or may not be able to return to work due to a permanent disability. In a perfect world, such injuries would be easily taken care of by a workers' compensation claim, but the tragic reality is that without legal representation, injured workers can be easily shortchanged through the system.
At Chiaf Law offices in Oklahoma City, our attorneys are dedicated to gathering the evidence needed to prove the true extent of the damages you have suffered and the financial burden that you and your family are experiencing now and may continue to experience in the future. Whether you have been recently injured or have had a claim denied, our lawyers can advocate for your rights.
Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability (SSD) is a federal program intended to help those who suffer injuries that leave them unable to work. Unlike workers' compensation, it can apply to injuries suffered outside the workplace. That means that if you become disabled due to a slip and fall accident in your home, for example, you may be eligible for SSD as long as you meet a number of requirements. However, like workers' compensation, there is no guarantee that those in need of Social Security disability will receive benefits. In some cases, applicants do not receive any compensation to cover their needs.
Having a Social Security disability attorney by your side can make all the difference in the outcome of your application for SSD. The team at Chiaf Law Offices in Oklahoma City has helped clients with Social Security disability claims for over 20 years and can gather the documentation needed to help you collect the maximum benefits to which you are entitled under the law. Whether you are beginning the process of an SSD claim or filing an appeal for a denied claim, our law firm can help.
What If an Initial Offer Seems Fair?
Personal Injury Claims
When dealing with an insurance company following an accident that results in a personal injury claim, it is important to keep in mind that your insurance company does not have your best interests at heart. Insurance companies are in the business of paying out as little as possible to entice you to settle your personal injury claim. The less they pay out, the more profitable their business. Insurance companies have a bottom line to protect, so it in their best interests to give you an offer that seems fair but is actually less than you may deserve.
This is why it is so important to hire a personal injury attorney if you have been injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident, or another serious incident. This is especially true if an accident has resulted in the wrongful death of a loved one. The team of personal injury lawyers at Chiaf Law Offices in Oklahoma City will fight to protect your rights and secure just compensation for the damages you have suffered. So that you don't have to worry about how to pay for our legal services, we don't collect a dime unless you receive just compensation for your injuries.
Workers' Compensation and Social Security Disability
When it comes to workers' compensation or social security disability, it is entirely possible that a client will receive a settlement offer that sounds reasonable. Unfortunately, there is a substantial risk that the initial offer provided by workers' compensation or Social Security disability will fall short of what you actually need to provide for yourself and your family. Many injured parties are eager to put the hassle of pursuing a claim behind them and move on with their lives, but it is important not to settle for less than you deserve.
At Chiaf Law Offices, our workers' compensation and Social Security disability lawyers can review your initial offer at a free consultation. We will answer any questions you may have and help you determine if your offer is indeed fair. If it isn't, we can help you pursue compensation that will actually meet your needs. Since we work on contingency, you don't have to worry about lawyer fees. We only get paid when you achieve a settlement.
