I was injured at work, now what?
Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that must be held by every employer in the United States. Workers’ compensation is in place to provide you with monetary compensation for any losses you experience as a direct result of a work-related injury.
Unlike most personal injury claims, if you suffer an injury on the job, you do not need to prove negligence was the cause of your injury. Workers’ compensation are simply granted for injuries that occured as a result of your employment. Please note, if you decide to receive workers’ compensation, you will no longer be able to file a claim for losses like pain & suffering or mental anguish.
Every workers’ compensation attorney at our law firm is dedicated to offering representation to individuals in Muskogee or anywhere in Oklahoma who believe that they have a worker’s compensation claim.
What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Not limited to physical injuries sustained at work; Workers’ Compensation (aka Work Comp) also covers any illnesses and medical problems that are a direct result of your employment. Work Comp can also be awarded for illnesses and injuries that may have not been diagnosed over long periods of time. An example of this would be asbestos workers discovering illnesses and complications many years after they have stopped working with asbestos. For most workers’ compensation claims, you simply sign a release which states that, in return for workers’ compensation benefits, you agree not to file any additional claims against the employer.
