Duncan Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Injured on the Job & Need Compensation?
Every employer in the U.S. is required to have workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation insurance is intended to provide you with monetary compensation for your losses experienced as a direct result of a work-related injury in Duncan or anywhere in Oklahoma.
The Difference Between Workers’ Compensation & Injury Claims
What makes workers' compensation claims different from most other injury claims is the fact that, if you suffer a work-related injury, you are not required to prove that negligence of another was the cause of your injury. Workers’ compensation are simply granted for any injuries that were sustained as a direct result of your employment.
Unlike other injury claims, when you elect to receive workers compensation, you relinquish the right to file a claim for other losses such as pain and suffering or mental anguish.
We have an experienced team of workers compensation attorneys at The Law Office of Michael R. Green, PLLC that is dedicated to offering representation to individuals anywhere in Oklahoma who believe that they have a valid claim for worker’s compensation benefits.
What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Any illnesses and medical problems that are a direct result of your employment can be covered under workers compensation (aka work comp).
Employees may also receive work comp for illnesses or injuries that were not diagnosed throughout a long period of time. For example, asbestos workers discovered illnesses and complications many years after they stopped working with the fibrous material.
