Who Gets Workers’ Compensation?
In Oklahoma, workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, which means that you can file a claim for workers’ comp benefits even if you were entirely or partially at fault for your accident, injury, or occupational illness. As long as your accident occurred for a work-related reason, and you have workers’ compensation coverage, you should be able to get benefits. Under the state’s laws, most employees and workers for the average company or employer must be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. However, independent contractors often are not.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits in Oklahoma
Workers' compensation is meant to help you get back to work as soon as possible by providing for you as needed. The benefits that you could receive through a workers’ compensation claim will depend on your insurance, the extent of your injuries, and so on. We can help you understand the benefits you need and how to get them.
Important workers’ compensation benefits include:
- Costs for past and future medical treatments.
- Wages you did not earn while recovering.
- Vocational retraining if you can’t return to the same role.
Reasons for Workers’ Comp Claim Denials
Not all workers’ compensation claims are accepted right away, even when they are filed correctly and legitimately. Some claims are denied by mistake or for unclear reasons.
Workers’ compensation claims are sometimes denied for these reasons:
- Injury did not occur in a work-related way.
- Injury occurred intentionally.
- Injury did not require medical attention.
- Injury did not cause any wage loss.
- Injury was not reported on time.
- Injury is not covered by workers’ compensation.
If your workers’ compensation claim was denied or challenged, don’t give up on it. You could still be able to get the compensation and benefits that you deserve by teaming up with our law firm. We can review the denial notice to look for an error or the starting point for counterarguments.
