Oklahoma Parking Lot Statutes 2016

In LeGarde-Bober vs. Oklahoma State University, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled that injuries occurring in employer controlled and maintained parking lots are considered to be injuries occurring on the premises, and could be considered compensable under the Administrative Workers’ Compensation Act.  Each case will be decided by its own merits, as several factors will come into play whether the claim is compensable or not.  Factors such as what the employee was doing at the time of injury, were they required to be there, mechanism of injury, etc. will be evaluated.  However, the blanket denial of compensability if the injury occurred in an employer’s parking lot is no longer a legal option.
