Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation
Two Branches of Government
In the state of Oklahoma, workers’ compensation laws are handled by two separate governing bodies: the Department of Labor and the Workers’ Compensation Court. The Department of Labor is responsible for enforcement of the State’s industrial insurance laws. The ODOL has a page on its website that answers the many questions that both employers and employees may have about the process. The Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Court handles the actual claims filed by injured workers. On its website, you can find a FAQ page designed specifically for injured workers. All the forms needed to file a workers’ compensation claim can be found here on the Court’s “Current Court Forms” page.
Like most states, Oklahoma has a strict timetable for filing a workers’ compensation claim. If an injury in not reported within this timeframe, you risk losing your right to benefits. The best course of action is to obtain a workers’ compensation lawyer as early in the process as possible. The attorney should be able to give you the guidance you need.
