Insurance Law Podcast Discusses New Workers’ Compensation Legislation in Oklahoma

Business Wire


A.M. Best has released the latest installment of the Insurance Law Podcast, a series that examines timely insurance issues from an attorney’s point of view.

This episode features attorney David Dodge, a partner with the law firm McCathern, PLLC in Dallas, Texas. Mr. Dodge represents clients in the areas of insurance coverage, bad faith actions and business and consumer cases. He also presents continuing education seminars for claims adjusters, insurance agents, brokers and producers.

Mr. Dodge describes the Oklahoma Employee Injury Benefit Act, workers’ compensation legislation that took effect in February 2014. He points out the act’s principal advantage for employers compared with the state’s statutory workers’ comp system and provides examples of how it gives employers greater flexibility in claims handling. Mr. Dodge contrasts this new act with non-subscription benefit plans in Texas and comments on whether similar legislation will be enacted in other states.

McCathern, PLLC is listed in Best’s Directories of Recommended Insurance Attorneys and Adjusters, the most authoritative and detailed reference for locating qualified legal counsel, independent insurance adjusting services and expert service providers since 1928. Learn more at
