Workers' Comp Accidents
Injured on the job in Oklahoma City?
An employee who is injured in any type of accident at work may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits for the injuries he or she has sustained. This applies to virtually any type of workplace accident, even one that the injured employee may have inadvertently caused.
When an employer has workers' compensation coverage, the employee will be able to seek benefits for medical care and lost wages if temporarily or permanently disabled. A primary benefit of workers' comp is the fact that the worker does not need to prove negligence on the part of the employer or another party in order to seek and recover benefits.
The only requirement is that the accident occurred at the workplace or was related to the injured worker carrying out his or her job duties.
