Oklahoma workers' compensation: 2 construction workers injured

In the early morning hours of July 6, two Oklahoma-based construction workers were working on the Peoria bridge in Tulsa when a passing semitrailer struck the bucket they were in. Both men were critically injured in the event. As this happened while they were on the clock, workers' compensation benefits should help them and their families cover the financial losses they are experiencing because of this incident.
