Oklahoma Workers Compensation
Workers’ Compensation is a state-mandated insurance program, purchased by employers, that provides compensation to employees who suffer a work-related illness or injury. If your workers’ compensation claim is successful, you will generally be compensated for any out-of-pocket medical expenses that are incurred due to a work related injury and any wages that are lost while receiving treatment or recovering from work related injuries.
If you are unable to work due to a work injury, it is important to contact a workers’ compensation lawyer who can start the claim process. If your workers comp case is not filed within the set time period, you will not be eligible for a workers’ compensation settlement.
