Tulsa Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Helping Injured Workers Seek Full Compensation
Unlike other personal injury claims, if you suffer a work related injury, you do not need to show that another party’s negligence was the cause of your injury. Workers’ compensation is awarded simply for injuries sustained as a result of your employment. However, if you choose to receive workers’ compensation, then you will no longer be able to file a claim to recover compensation for losses like mental anguish, pain, or suffering.
Each workers’ compensation attorney at our law firm is dedicated to offering representation to individuals anywhere in Oklahoma who believe that they have a worker’s compensation claim. If you need a trusted attorney to handle your claim, turn to our dedicated, hard-working team at The Law Office of Michael R. Green, PLLC.
What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Workers’ compensation is not limited to physical injuries sustained while at work:
It also covers illnesses and other medical problems that are the direct result of your employment.
Workers’ compensation can also be awarded for illnesses or injuries that have not been diagnosed for long periods of time, which often happens with asbestos workers discovering illnesses years after they have stopped working with asbestos.
Instead, for most workers’ compensation claims, all you have to do is sign a release saying that in return for your workers’ compensation you will not file any additional claims against your employer. Our team can help you make an informed decision about your options as you consider your case.
How Much Does Workers’ Compensation Pay?
The amount of workers’ compensation is determined by many different factors and your employer and their insurance company may try to prevent you from receiving the full and fair compensation you deserve. In these situations, an experienced workers’ compensation attorney from our law firm is needed.
We handle all of the details of your claim, including working with your employer and their insurance company to settle claims. Workers’ compensation is supposed to help you in a time of need but if you don’t recover the necessary amount, then you may have to suffer even more losses in addition to your injury or illness.
