Tulsa Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
In Oklahoma, you are covered by workers’ compensation under most circumstances if you are injured on the job. In many cases you can bring a separate claim against the person or company who caused your injury.
For example, if you were injured as a result of a negligent driver while you were at work, you may have not only a workers’ compensation claim, but also a claim against the negligent driver.

At Laizure & Thetford, our Tulsa workers’ compensation attorneys have helped hundreds of hurt people obtain workers’ compensation benefits along with damage awards from the negligent parties. In addition to our skilled and experienced trial lawyers, we have Tulsa workers’ compensation attorneys who are dedicated exclusively to representing persons seeking workers’ compensation benefits. If a workers’ comp attorney determines that you have a claim outside your workers’ compensation claim, your case will be referred to one of our trial attorneys.
Your employer and its insurance company will work to minimize the amount of money you receive for your injuries or occupational illness. We’re on your side, helping you receive the full amount of benefits you deserve.
Other firms who handle workers’ compensation do only workers’ compensation. If you have a third party personal injury claim or if a medical provider commits medical malpractice pursuant to your medical care, those firms will refer you to an outside firm. A stranger will handle your third party claim.
At Laizure & Thetford, we have the skill and resources to handle virtually all third party claims arising from workman’s comp and care. We believe that continuity in representation is important. If you have experienced a workplace injury, contact us to learn about your rights. The earlier you call, the earlier we can begin to obtain the weekly benefits you’ll need to meet your obligations. The initial consultation is free of charge and you will pay no attorney fees unless we win benefits for you.
From our office in Tulsa, we represent clients throughout northeast Oklahoma.
