Workers’ Comp Benefits or Personal Injury Law:
Workers compensation is a no fault system of of insurance. Thus, if you sustain injuries at work, it does not matter who takes the blame. Unlike a personal injury case, fault is not a deciding factor in workers compensation law. The Oklahoma legislatures created this no fault system as a expedited way of handling on the job injuries. In exchange for no fault system the law limits an employers liability to whats available in workers compensation court. This means that if your employer is negligent you cant sue them in District court. This also means that if you’re negligent they cant deny your right to care.
This is called the Oklahoma Grand Bargain. Its a source of constant controversy in our state. In fact recent changes have made it much harder for you to get treatment for work injuries. This is reflected in the multitude of Oklahoma Appeals Courts cases involving the workers compensation commission.
