Worker's Compensation and Bad Faith

Comments Off

The Supreme Court of Oklahoma allows a claimant to bring a bad faith claim against her employer’s Worker’s Compensation insurance carrier for failure to pay permanent partial disability benefits. The case is SIZEMORE v. CONTINENTAL CASUALTY COMPANY. The court found that a common law tort of bad faith exists for an insurance carrier’s bad faith in refusing to pay a workers’ compensation award.
