Who Can Be Held Responsible for a Work Injury?

Getting hurt on the job isn’t just painful—it can also lead to big medical bills and weeks or even months without the paychecks your family depends on.

Because of the devastating effects that workplace injuries can have on employees, almost all employers in Oklahoma are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. However, getting approved for those benefits can be difficult, and the amount of money you receive may not be enough to cover all of your injury-related expenses.

If your injury was caused by another person’s or party’s negligence, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim. At Parrish DeVaughn, our Oklahoma City workers’ compensation lawyers can review your claim and determine the best path forward for you and your loved ones. It’s our goal to help you get maximum compensation. Contact us today for a free consultation.
