A work accident can result in life-long consequences for the injured worker and his or her family. Even a seemingly minor injury can impact a victim's ability to return to work or perform the same tasks as before. These circumstances can lead to financial difficulty, especially if a workers' compensation claim has been denied.
Most Oklahoma workers are entitled to certain benefits through the state's workers' compensation system. This typically includes medical costs, lost wages from missed work and continued rehabilitation. Depending on the extent of the injury, benefits may cover the cost of vocational retraining if the injured person is unable to return to the same job. Without the financial support of rightful benefits, the costs of a full recovery can financially devastate a family.
