Thousands of Oklahoma workers risk their health and safety every day to earn an income. If you are one of them, you might suffer from exposure to dangerous gases and fumes from toxic chemicals, harsh weather conditions, dangerous moving parts of machines, extreme heights or other hazardous conditions. Your body may be taxed with repetitive pulling, lifting, pushing, crawling and crouching.

3 reasons to talk to an attorney after a work-related injury

Getting into a work-related accident can have a major impact on your life. If you fall and suffer a serious back injury, you could be unable to work, lift your kids up or sleep in your own bed. And in addition to the massive medical bills that are piling up, you can struggle to pay your mortgage and provide the things your family needs.

Should you report a seemingly minor workplace injury?

After first suffering an injury, you may not fully understand its severity.

Get help and report soon after suffering an injury at work

Work-related injuries happen every day. If you are one of the many Oklahoma residents who have suffered injuries in a work accident, you need to get help and report as soon as possible. If you do not, you run the risk of having workers' compensation claims denied and having to cover your losses out of pocket. That is something most people simply cannot afford.

Is a factory of the future putting workers’ futures at risk?

Tesla’s “factory of the future” was once a decommissioned, unionized car plant based in Fremont, California. CEO Elon Musk repurposed the facility that now house giant robots that shape and fold sheets of metal. Named after X-Men from movie and comic book fame, they work alongside 10,000 human counterparts.

Facebook’s live video problem

While posting videos on Facebook was a popular activity, the social media giant decided to up the ante, allowing their users the opportunity to broadcast live video. Users were able to document the simplest of tasks to the most significant events in their lives. The possibilities are endless.

Workers Memorial Day set for April 28

Thousands of workers in a variety of industries die and millions more are seriously injured or sickened every year while on the job.
