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.
The workers' compensation system is complex, and many claims are initially denied. In order to successfully file a claim, it is best to seek the help of a lawyer as soon as possible after an accident. A lawyer can help complete and file the necessary paperwork in a timely manner, as well as assist with any appeals that may be needed if the claim is denied.
Workers' often feel daunted by the workers' compensation process and assume that they have limited options. However, a lawyer can ensure that a person's rights are protected from the very beginning of the process. Failure to retain experienced legal counsel can result in a settlement or award that does not actually reflect the needs of the applicant.
You should not attempt to navigate the workers' compensation system without the help of a lawyer. A lawyer gives you a greater chance for the full recovery that you deserve. A complete case evaluation can help you understand what options are available and grant you a better protection of your rights.
