Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation Firm Fights for Injured Employees in Nebraska

Assertive attorneys seek benefits for workers hurt on the job in the Omaha area

When you become injured or ill during the normal course of your employment, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Most employers are mandated by state law to carry this no-fault insurance program, which provides employees with benefits that cover medical costs, lost wages, and rehabilitation expenses when an on-the-job injury prevents them from performing their normal work duties. The experienced attorneys at Walz Law Offices, P. C., L.L.O work tirelessly to help workers get fair compensation for injuries and illnesses sustained on the job by assisting with applications and appealing denials. We are committed to getting you the payments you need when you need them.

Results-oriented Nebraska workers’ comp lawyers press for the benefits you’re entitled to

While workers’ compensation benefits are provided by employers’ insurance companies, those benefits are mandated by state law, with some exceptions that may depend on the company’s size, type of business, and work done by employees. While benefits vary by jurisdiction, they most often cover:

  • Medical, hospital and rehabilitation expenses
  • A percentage of lost wages
  • Compensation for permanent disability
  • Costs of retraining
  • Dependents’ recovery for a worker’s death

It’s important to notify your employer as soon as possible after you’ve sustained an on-the-job injury. Neglecting to do so could affect your ability to claim the benefits you deserve.

Tenacious advocates assist with your workers’ compensation appeal

The companies who underwrite workers’ comp policies are like all insurance carriers: their goal is to limit liability and pay as little as possible in claim benefits. That’s why it’s essential you’re represented by an experienced workers’ comp attorney who knows the laws governing workers’ comp in Nebraska and can help you appeal a denied claim for workers’ comp. You have a limited time to appeal the decision, so it’s important to seek help as soon as possible. We will investigate the reasons for your denial and guide you through the often complicated process of appealing the decision, which may involve appearing with you at hearings before the state’s workers’ compensation board.

Knowledgeable counselors advise on third-party claims

If you are eligible for benefits under the workers’ compensation system, you cannot file a separate negligence action against your employer. Workers’ compensation coverage reimburses victims for medical costs, lost wages and rehabilitation expenses. It does not pay for other types of damages available in personal injury actions, such as compensation for pain and suffering. When you believe that someone besides your employer bears some fault for your work-related injury, such as the manufacturer in a defective product case, we can advise whether you may have a third-party claim that will allow you to seek damages in addition to your workers’ comp benefits by holding the negligent party accountable.
