The Oklahoma Workers Compensation Lawyers with J. Colbert Injury Lawyers explain the Oklahoma Workers Compensation Commission (OWCC) recently launched a new website. Furthermore, the agency has opened several new offices to support workers who are filing claims.

An article from KFOR 4 News, the website is designed to supply workers with the information and documents they need to begin and see a claim through the approval process. The website is part of several changes that were enacted by law last year and aimed at moving the state’s workers’ compensation program to a more administrative format.

The OWCC has also opened offices in both Tulsa and Oklahoma City to better assist those who are applying for benefits. The offices began processing claims on Monday, February 3.
