Third-Party Claims Under Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Law
Oklahoma workers’ compensation attorneys that give you peace of mind
If you have been injured at your workplace, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits to cover medical expenses and part of your lost wages. While this can go a long way toward helping you recover from your injury, there may be other things — such as pain and suffering — for which you need to seek damages. When this is the case, contact a Tulsa workers’ compensation attorney.
When you work with Stipe, Harper, Laizure, Uselton, Belote, Maxcey & Thetford, we aggressively pursue all of your legal options, providing you with the confidence to seek just compensation after your injury. That’s because workers’ compensation is one of our main areas of practice.
The compensation you deserve through third-party claims
A third-party claim holds an individual or organization responsible for an accident in the workplace, giving you the ability to receive full compensation for medical costs, wages and even pain and suffering. However, it’s important to note that this can be a complicated process, which is why our Tulsa workers’ compensation lawyers work hard to help you explore your options under the law.
You may begin filing a workers’ compensation claim for a variety of situations, including:
- Auto accidents. This type of accident often results from negligence on the part of a driver.
- Construction accidents. Outside contractors sometimes cause accidents at construction sites, and may be held accountable for negligence.
- Slip & fall accidents. If your employer has provided an unsafe work environment that results in injury, you may be eligible for compensation.
If you’ve experienced any type of accident while at work, remember the importance of reporting an injury for workers’ compensation benefits.
Determining the eligibility of your third-party claim
Besides your employer, there may be other people or companies that may be held responsible for your workplace injury. However, determining who is at fault for these incidents can be difficult, and it takes an experienced legal mind to find the options that will result in you receiving the benefits to which you’re entitled.
