While it is true that employees have the rights and deserve to receive adequate compensation for any injuries that they get from work, many employers are not willing to give them this compensation. Employers oftentimes try and put off workers’ compensation cases and offer injured workers payouts instead of workers’ compensation benefits in order to preserve their low insurance rates, or for another reason. Cases where a request for workers’ compensation has been denied can be challenging and frustrating, which is why it is a good idea to bring in the expertise of a worker’s compensation attorney from Atkins & Markoff. Our legal team understands the system and Oklahoma’s workers’ compensation laws, which means we are well-prepared to fight for your rights and make sure you receive the proper compensation you deserve from your employer.
By Oklahoma state law your employer is required to grant your workers’ compensation request, as long as they have workers’ compensation insurance and your accident was due to someone else’s negligence. In the event you were denied compensation and you believe it is because your employer is trying to save money, consult one of our experienced attorneys immediately. Additionally, if your request for compensation was denied because of discrimination or fraud, you will need the representation of an attorney that understands these types of cases and is willing to fight for your rights.
