In 2016, our firm was instrumental in helping undo a great injustice passed into law at the request of a few irresponsible employers. The Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down the Opt Out Act on September 13, 2016, as an unconstitutional special law. Dillard’s department store opted out of the Oklahoma Workers Compensation Act when it became lawful to do so on February 1, 2014. Subsequently, many injured workers were denied benefits that would have otherwise been due under the Workers’ Compensation Act. Employers were allowed to deny claims and if the employee sought an appeal the appeal was decided by Dillard’s much like the fox watching the hen house.

Though there are no guarantees, with the Burton Law Group, P.C., you can be confident that you have a capable and tenacious law firm at your side. We will devote our time, dedication, and all the resources necessary to pursue the best possible outcome for you.

Personal Injury Lawyer

The thrill of doing an adventure sport, let’s say bungee jumping, can turn on its head, if God forbid, something terrible happens to you in the middle of the activity. Though you very well knew it was an inherently dangerous sport and even signed the waiver the organizers gave you, it’s most likely you’d pin down the accident to some negligence of their part. Letting them go off the hook, although you performed the activity under their supervision is definitely not on the cards. Despite all the arguments they put forth saying you willingly signed the waiver, you will want to fight them tooth and nail for all the misery that has come your way, due to their adventure has gone totally wrong. It is at the time you’ll be in dire need of the counseling and legal services of a personal injury lawyer in OKC, or elsewhere, to let your voice be heard above all their arguments.

The Reality

When you take the call to file a lawsuit, the company or individual in all probability will also lawyer up and throw up a couple of legal defenses in order to avoid facing the wrath of the law.  One common line of defense defendants normally put forth is the assumption of risk. Here the complainant will vehemently argue that you knowingly engaged in dangerous behavior, and therefore it is quite evident you accepted the risks that were inherent to it. This legal construct states that the defendant did not owe you a duty of care since you partook of the activity and its associated risks voluntarily. And so they will argue fervently for the successful use of the assumption of risk doctrine to stop you from seeking compensation for your personal injuries.

Sever the assumption of risk

Even though companies believe the assumption of risk is broad, they are still many ways in which you can ride over this defense. For example, if you can prove that the defendant, did not offer you adequate protective gear or behaved in a manner that moderated the risks associated with the activity, their defense will tumble down like Humpty Dumpty falling off the wall.
