Have You Suffered Multiple Work Injuries Over The Years?
Whenever an employee succeeds with a workers’ compensation claim, taxes are taken out of the award or settlement. Some of these taxes go into the Multiple Injury Trust Fund; a fund set aside for workers who sustain multiple work-related injuries over their lifetime.
If you have suffered a career-ending injury and have had at least one previous workers’ compensation claim that was successful, you may be eligible for benefits out of the MITF. It is important to work with an attorney who understands the Multiple Industry Trust Fund and can guide you through the process in the correct order.
We Know How To Get You The Compensation You Need
The Multiple Injury Trust Fund was created by the Oklahoma legislature to encourage employers to hire workers who have prior injuries and pre-existing disabilities. If such a worker suffers a re-injury or a new injury on top of their existing disability, it often is too much to bear. If that employee is unable to continue working, the MITF helps to defray the costs of permanent disability benefits (or a disability settlement). In the past, the MITF was also known as the Special Indemnity Fund and the Second Injury Fund.
I am Ray Lahann, a workers’ compensation lawyer with a strong record of success helping injured workers pursue benefits from the Multiple Injury Trust Fund. I previously worked for the state of Oklahoma defending the MITF, so I am intimately familiar with the fund, the regulations that govern claims and the tactics used by its defense attorneys.
Often, we can file an MITF claim immediately after we conclude your final injury case. My experience in workers’ compensation law enables me to address the complex issues that arise in cases of multiple injuries while maximizing your chances for success.
