Holding Employers Accountable For On The Job Safety
Often times employers are more concerned about their rising workers’ compensation insurance premiums than their employee’s injury. And similarly, the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company is more concerned about increasing the dividend payment to their stockholders than concerned about meeting obligations to you under the Workers’ Compensation Act. The concern of employers (and of their workers’ compensation insurance companies) over the cost of claims all too often causes them to deny medical care and other benefits to their injured workers. For insurance companies, it’s all about saving money. An injured worker needs competent legal representation for his workers’ compensation claim, so as to ensure that the worker receives all of the benefits to which he is entitled pursuant to the Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Act.
Our Only Goal is Winning FOR YOU!
Our law firm is dedicated to the pursuit of Justice for injured workers throughout all of Oklahoma. We represent injured workers pursuant to a contingency attorney fee agreement. What’s contingency? This simply means that your lawyer isn’t paid for services unless and until the injured worker receives an award. Attorney fee rates on Workers’ Compensation Court claims are regulated by the Oklahoma Legislature to be 10% of Temporary Total Disability recoveries, and 20% of Permanent Partial Disability recoveries.
Third Party Liability Claims
Many times the injury that a worker suffers is caused by a person who is not a co-employee. For example, a car accident while at work that was the fault of the other driver may create another claim against the negligent driver. In order for an injured worker to receive full compensation for his injury, it is often necessary and advisable to pursue the “third-party” negligent actor with a lawsuit in District Court. Our Tulsa Workers’ Compensation Attorney knows how to get you the compensation you deserve.
