Workers' Comp Overview

Workers' Compensation Overview

Oklahoma City Workers' Comp Attorneys

Workers' compensation is a system that offers coverage to employees who have sustained work-related injuries or who have lost their lives in accidents or other incidents related to their employment.

Employers are required to provide workers' compensation coverage to employees through a company authorized to provide workers' compensation insurance. They may also self-insure against workers' compensation liability, although they must meet certain requirements to do so.

  • Virtually all employers are required to provide some form of workers' compensation coverage for their employees, except in specific circumstances:
  • For certain licensed real estate agents or brokers; and
  • For employees covered under Federal laws.
  • For domestic/household employees with a total payroll of less than $10,000 per year;
  • For agricultural/horticultural employees with a payroll of less than $100,000 per year

If you recently sustained any type of work-related injury or illness, an Oklahoma City workers' comp lawyer at our law firm can talk to you about whether your employer is required to provide workers' comp coverage. We can also review the matter to determine the amount of benefits you may be entitled to receive.
