Get the help you need from an experienced Oklahoma workers’ compensation attorney

If you’ve been injured while at work, then you might be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits through your employer’s insurance. However, in some cases, companies are negligent or refuse to provide just compensation to personnel who have been injured on the job.

If this is the situation you’re facing, then you should work with the Tulsa workers’ compensation attorneys at Stipe Law Firm. We help you navigate complex Oklahoma workers’ compensation law and get you on a path toward collecting what you need and deserve for your injury.

Reporting injuries that happen on the job

If you’ve been injured, it’s important for you to notify your employer as soon as possible, even if the injury does not appear to be serious. In this way, if issues such as back aches or other ailments begin in the future, there will be a record of your report dating back to when the injury occurred.

Legally, Oklahoma workers’ compensation law requires that you report your injury or get medical care from a doctor within a 30-day period. However, if you do not report your injury in that time frame, you may still receive benefits, but your employer’s insurance company might deny your claim. When this is the case, it’s important for you to seek assistance from an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who will help you work with the insurance company for a successful resolution.

Workers’ compensation for long-term injuries

Unlike accidents that occur on the job, some workplace injuries are not immediately apparent. In fact, due to job requirements like repetitive movement or trauma, you might not experience injuries for years. These types of workers’ compensation claims have the most success when reported within 90 days of when you ceased working for your employer, although an Oklahoma workers’ compensation lawyer can help if more time than that has passed.
