Every injured worker is entitled to workers' compensation benefits. Whether you suffered your injury in an sudden and unexpected accident, or you have developed a medical condition after years of repetitive stress, workers' compensation will protect you.
You may be asking whether or not you need a lawyer. While workers' comp is designed to protect your rights, it is not so different from any other insurance plan. They want to come up with a plan that minimizes their payments to you. We know how the system works and we will make sure you get the full extent of benefits to which you are entitled.
Workers' Comp vs. Personal Injury Claims
Oklahoma has an exclusive remedy doctrine, which means you cannot file a personal injury claim against your employer. You can only file a workers' compensation claim. However, if you work in an inherently dangerous profession, you can also file a personal injury claim if there is a liable third party in your case.
For example, construction accident victims are entitled to workers' compensation because they were injured on the job. However, they are often able to file an additional personal injury claim if their injury was the result of the negligence of someone besides their own employer.
