How to File Workers Comp in Oklahoma
Learn From Our Workers' Compensation Lawyers Serving Oklahoma City
If you were injured at work, you will need to file a workers' compensation claim in order to seek benefits. You need to inform your employer of the incident within 30 days of the accident, your injury or your knowledge that an illness is work-related. If you do not notify your employer within 30 days, this may limit your ability to recover workers' comp benefits.
To file for workers' compensation, you will need to file Form 3 "Employee's First Notice of Accidental Injury and Claim for Compensation" with the Oklahoma Workers' Compensation Court. Your employer may also file this form on your behalf, directly with their insurer or the court.
Filing for workers' compensation can be a difficult process in some cases. It is important that you properly file your claim and that all information is included to ensure it is handled in a timely manner. An attorney at the Law Offices of Stipe & Belote can help you properly file your claim and can handle any issue or dispute that does arise to help ensure that your claim is approved.
