Your Right to Workers’ Compensation Benefits
March 13, 2023
You Have a Right to Workers’ Compensation Benefits if You Have Been Injured on The Job
Many workers who suffer on-the-job injuries are not aware of their rights regarding workers’ compensation benefits. Many employers give workers incomplete or inaccurate information in order to protect their own interests. In some cases, for example, a worker might ask if they should go through their own health insurance. Employers will often tell them they should rather than advise them of their right to seek workers’ compensation benefits.
If you have been injured on the job, it is important that you have accurate information about your rights and how to exercise them. At Litton & Chaney Law Firm in Oklahoma City, we offer our clients nearly 30 years of experience in these cases. We have a complete understanding of the law regarding your right to workers’ compensation benefits, and we work hard to see that you receive the maximum level of compensation available under the law.
Hiring the Right Attorney Can Help to Ensure that Your Rights Are Protected
The process involved with obtaining workers’ compensation benefits can be quite complex for people who are not familiar with it. In many cases, it is the employer’s insurance company that stands in the way of your benefits when your claim is denied without cause. When you choose our firm, we will be there with you from start to finish, working hard at every step to ensure that you receive the benefits you deserve.
Do not allow your claim to be swept aside by a self-serving employer or an uncaring insurance company. You have rights under the Oklahoma Administrative Workers’ Compensation Act, and both your employer and the insurance company are well aware of them. We will help you take the necessary steps to obtain benefits and put them on notice that your claim should be taken seriously.
