Knowledgeable Job Injury Attorneys
Under Nebraska workers' compensation law, if you are injured at work, you cannot sue your employer for damages. In most cases, you will be entitled to wage loss benefits and medical benefits through your employer's workers' compensation insurance.
However, in some cases, you may be entitled to additional compensation if a third party, such as the manufacturer of a defective product, is partially to blame for your injuries or suffering. You must report your injury to your employer immediately in order to receive coverage and, if your employer tries to deny you coverage, our attorneys can help with those types of cases as well.
