Getting hurt or developing an illness while you’re on the job can be devastating to you and your family, especially if you become disabled and are unable to work for an extended period of time. Thankfully, Oklahoma has a workers’ compensation system that’s designed to help workers like you whose health prevents them from returning to their jobs for the foreseeable future.
But just because the system exists doesn’t mean it’s readily accessible to those who need it. In fact, getting approval for benefits by the Oklahoma Workers Compensation Commission is difficult. Many first-time claimants are denied, even if they suffered serious injuries or illnesses at work and they have the documentation to prove it. Many people who are denied workers’ compensation benefits simply give up, putting their finances and even their families’ futures in jeopardy.
