Important Information for Beneficiaries of an Oklahoma Workplace Death
It is important for beneficiaries to understand how Oklahoma law affects their rights in a claim of death in the workplace. The Oklahoma’s Workers’ Compensation Act states that an employee who elects to take workers’ compensation does not have a right to sue his employer for injuries in the workplace. Beneficiaries or surviving relatives are not allowed to sue for wrongful death if the deceased worker accepted workers’ compensation and give up their right to sue. There are circumstances when you can file a lawsuit against a third party even if workers compensation was accepted by the deceased person. For example, if the death was caused or can be linked to a toxic chemical used in the workplace, you might be able to bring a toxic tort lawsuit against the manufacturer of that substance. These types of cases can be complicated and usually require the help of an experienced personal injury attorney. Contact us today for more information.
