Have you been injured on the job? If so, you may have unpaid medical bills and lost wages as a result of your work-related accident. A personal injury attorney experienced in Oklahoma workers’ compensation laws can fight on your behalf to protect your rights and help you get the money you deserve.
Workers’ compensation is an insurance program providing employees who are injured on the job with compensation for disability, as well as medical and rehabilitation benefits. An injured worker has the right to file a claim regardless of who is “at fault” for the accident that caused his or her injuries. These benefits can also be claimed by surviving dependents in cases of accidental death.
What should you do after a workplace injury?
- Report the injury to your supervisor immediately.
- Seek immediate medical attention.
- Make sure to keep all of your appointments.
- Keep your employer up to date with your situation and progress.
- Follow your doctor’s treatment plan.
- Contact your employer as soon as your doctor releases you for work.
