You need a lawyer if filing a workers' compensation claim

Every Oklahoma worker has the right to a full and fair recovery after a work accident. In order to achieve this recovery, a person needs financial support so that he or she can get deserved medical care. In addition to the right to medical care, a person also can seek workers' compensation benefits for wages lost in the days and weeks following a work accident. 

Victims of car accidents may be eligible for compensation

A car collision can result in serious injuries for innocent Oklahoma drivers and passengers. These injuries may require extensive medical treatment and leave victims in a precarious financial situation as they deal with medical bills and other financial losses. Fortunately, those harmed in car accidents have the option to seek a financial recovery.

A driver, allegedly drunk at the time, is said to have caused a fatal collision which left two other people injured. Drunk driving leads to an increased risk of car accidents for all other drivers and passengers on the road.

One-car accident leads to serious injury for occupants

The accident victims, including one who suffered serious injury, were taken for medical treatment to a local Oklahoma hospital.
