Workers Compensation Law Lawyers In Snow Oklahoma

Snow is a community in Pushmataha County, Oklahoma, 18 miles northeast of Antlers, Oklahoma. A United States Post Office was established here on July 21, 1930. It was named for George Snow, local resident and merchant. Located in the Kiamichi Mountains, but not in the Kiamichi River valley, Snow was very isolated until construction and paving of U.S. Highway 271 during the 1950s, connecting the area to Nashoba, Oklahoma and Clayton, Oklahoma on the north and Antlers on the south. Snow is located along the upper reaches of Big Cedar Creek, which is almost always well watered and experiences reliable flow regardless of season. Although Snow once supported a school, churches and more than one general store, it never developed into a commercial or trading center. Today it has one store. Its school children attend public school in Antlers. During recent years Snow School has been recognized as of historical and architectural significance, and has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. More information on Snow may be found in the Pushmataha County Historical Society.

What is workers compensation law?

Workers Compensation establishes the liability of an employer for injuries or sicknesses which arise out of and in the course of employment. The liability is created without regard to the fault or negligence of the employer. Benefits generally include hospital and other medical payments and compensation for loss of income; if the injury is covered by the statute, compensation under the statute will be the employees only remedy against her or her employer. The workers compensation systems in place in each state are exclusive, no-fault remedies for most workplace injuries, and workers compensation attorneys guide injured workers through the process, to ensure that they receive appropriate income replacement payments and other monetary awards.
