Workplace injuries by worker's fault eligible for compensation

Oklahoma employers are obligated to carry workers' compensation for all of their workers. Workers' compensation could be seen as a type of bargain between employers and their employees. It creates a balance between company owners and workers, whereby employers agree to pay compensation for workplace injuries, and workers give up their rights to sue their employers, except in cases of gross negligence.

Workplace injury and death the subject of lawsuits against CBS

It is not uncommon for workers to suffer injuries that are caused by someone other than their employer or a coworker. A negligent vehicle operator from another company can cause severe injuries or even fatalities. Another cause of many workplace injuries is malfunctioning equipment that may be the fault of the manufacturer or supplier of the equipment. Oklahoma workers may be interested in two incidents -- one workplace injury and one on-the-job fatality -- that were caused by third-parties on film production sets.
