Workers' Compensation Attorney in Oklahoma City
The State of Oklahoma enacted the Administrative Workers' Compensation Act of 2015 to ensure that individuals injured on the job receive the care they need and the compensation they deserve. However, that hasn't stopped insurance companies from trying to find ways to minimize their financial responsibility of compensating those who have been injured and are eligible for workers' compensation benefits.
These companies will find the smallest reason to minimize payouts or even deny claims altogether. If that's what you're dealing with, you're not alone.
At Morgan and Morgan, our injury firm files more employment-related cases than any law firm in the nation. We have dealt with insurance companies, big and small, in the fight for the compensation the people we represent deserve. We might be able to fight for you as well.

How Does Workers' Compensation Insurance Work?
Workers' compensation is a type of insurance that covers workers when they get injured on the job. The insurance covers medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and a portion of lost wages. Employees typically waive their right to sue their employer for the injury in exchange for these benefits.
How are Weekly Benefits Calculated in Workers' Compensation Cases?
In Oklahoma, your weekly benefits are calculated at 70 percent of what you earn on a weekly basis. This average is found by dividing your gross earnings by the total number of weeks you worked for the employer, up to a maximum of 52 weeks prior to your work-related accident.
What Are Some Common Reasons for Workers' Compensation Claim Denial?
Insurance companies may deny your claim for many different reasons, including:
- Delayed reporting of the injury
- Lack of medical evidence supporting the claim
- Disputes over whether the injury is work-related
- Failure to meet filing deadlines
- Pre-existing conditions not aggravated by work activities
If you believe that the reason for denial is unfair, you have the right to file an appeal. Tell us about your case, and we'll let you know how best to proceed.
What Can I Do to Increase My Chances of Getting Approved for Compensation?
A workers' compensation claim shouldn't have to end in a denial. Here are a few things you can do to increase your chances of approval:
• Seek medical attention immediately.
• Report the injury promptly to your supervisor.
• Obtain a copy of the injury report
• Keep a record of all medical treatments, prescriptions, and expenses.
• Follow the prescribed treatment plan and attend all medical appointments.
