Workplace injuries: Complicated claims might need legal counsel

Many employees in Oklahoma are unfamiliar with the procedures to follow when filing workers' compensation claims. Victims of workplace injuries have every right to seek legal counsel for assistance with the claims process. While simple claims might be straightforward, complexities in some cases can pose many stumbling blocks.

Some workplace injuries are preventable

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says between six and seven million construction workers risk their lives on building sites nationwide every day. Many of those are in Oklahoma, and regardless of whether they work on high rises or single story residential projects, hazards are plentiful. Although employers are responsible for employee safety, each worker can take specific precautionary steps to avoid workplace injuries.

Prevention might be better than cure for workplace injuries

Workers in all industries are exposed to safety hazards, regardless of whether they work in offices, grocery stores or construction sites. Some risks are universal, and many employees in Oklahoma might not realize that they can ask their employer to arrange or provide safety training. Knowing how to cope with different safety hazards can benefit both employer and employee, and if training occurs at frequent intervals, the complacency that can cause workplace injuries can be avoided.
