Oklahoma Workers' Compensation Claims

The accident must have taken place in a work environment or while engaged in work-related driving or other action. In some cases, an injured worker who may have inadvertently caused the accident may still be eligible for compensation, despite what an employer may lead them to believe.

In such cases, it is imperative to have a workers’ compensation lawyer in Oklahoma City on your side to protect your rights and seek the best possible outcome. These cases have the potential to be complex and may be challenging to deal with, given that so much is on the line.

Do not leave your future up to chance, and do not allow an unscrupulous employer or workers’ compensation insurance company to take advantage of you by offering a lowball settlement that does not cover your expenses.

Your employer’s insurance company has certain responsibilities that it must adhere to, and the legal team at the Law Offices of Stipe & Belote in Oklahoma City could help ensure that they do. Involve an attorney with experience, knowledge, and resources to significantly and positively impact your claim. Reach out to us today to schedule a consultation to get started on your claim.

What is workers’ compensation?

The workers’ compensation system was designed to protect employees from the potential dangers they face while performing their job – and protect employers from being the target of lawsuits. Benefits are paid to workers who are injured on the job. The benefits paid through the system include:

  • Medical expenses related to your injuries
  • Compensation for missed wages
  • Funeral costs and compensation for dependents you may have if your injuries result in death

The state of Oklahoma requires most businesses to provide workers’ compensation insurance for their employees, though there are some exceptions, which include:

  • Freelancers and independent contractors
  • Businesses that have five or fewer employees who are all related by blood or marriage
  • Volunteers or those who do not receive regular wages
  • Licensed real estate agents

If you were injured while performing your job duties, you must inform your employer of your injuries within 30 days. Employers have to report these injuries to the Commission within 10 days and let you know if they support your claim within 15 days.
