Putting injured Nebraska workers first
Proof of negligence by your employer is not necessary in a workers compensation claim, except when it involves a railroad accident. As long as your injury occurred while you were performing your job duties, you have a claim against your employer. The law entitles you to two-thirds of your pre-injury average weekly wage for the time you are out of work. You are also entitled to medical treatment for the injury for life. If your injury is permanent, you may be entitled to additional compensation.
In theory, you only need to focus on healing. In reality, you can be denied your benefits or receive compensation far below that to which you are entitled. Your employer can challenge your claim or challenge a judge’s decision and force you to go through an extremely complicated appeals process. Your best choice in any case is to have the help and guidance of an experienced workers compensation lawyer.
