Workers Compensation Courts

Workers’ Compensation cases handled in Oklahoma are divided between two courts, the Oklahoma City Workers’ Compensation Court and the Tulsa Workers’ Compensation Court. Unlike most other areas of law, the determination of which court a case will be handled in is not a jurisdictional issue, but rather an issue of the preference of the parties involved. In addition to the two courts, under the Workers’ Compensation Reform enacted in 2005, the parties may agree to hold hearings by video conference at other locations; however, this is rarely done.
