Rights of Injured Workers in Oklahoma

work-injuryUnderstanding Your Rights As An Injured Worker

According to Oklahoma state law, employees who have been injured on the job have certain workers’ compensation rights. If you have sustained an injury on the job that was not a result of your own actions, you should be monetarily compensated. Workers’ compensation comes from your employer’s insurance and can be a somewhat challenging process in some cases. Here at Atkins & Markoff, our lawyers understand the Oklahoma workers’ compensation laws and will be able to represent you and fight for your rights. Suffering an injury at work presents many stresses and difficulties, which is why it is important for you to ensure you receive equal treatment from your employer. It is important to note that employers are prohibited from granting or denying compensation based upon a worker’s race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, experience, or any other factor. If you have been injured at work because of another person’s negligence, you should be rightfully compensated.
