    Termination

    Yes, you can in many states, as long as it is believed that the injury wasn't caused by your own negligence, etc. Workers compensation is regulated at the state level. I would suggest you contact the Oklahoma Workers Compensation Enforcement Division. Their website is at: http://www.state.ok.us/~okdol/workco...comp%20FAQ.htm

    Let me know if you have any other questions.
