Work Accidents: How Long After Can You Pursue?
How Long After an Injury Can You Pursue Your Claim?
In most cases in Nebraska, you have two years from the date of your injury or the Workers’ Compensation insurance company makes its last payment to begin a court proceeding in the Workers’ Compensation Court. This time limit may be extended if your employer has paid any of the bills associated with your injury. For a specific analysis on the time you have to file your claim, it is important to contact an attorney immediately.
If you have been injured on the job, even if you were negligent, you may be entitled to benefits.
Remember that insurance companies have professional adjusters and attorneys working to represent their interests and to save the insurance company money. Make sure that you are not dealing with the insurance company at an unfair advantage. It is your right to be equally represented.
