Work Accidents: Losses You Can Be Compensated for?
What Losses Can You Be Compensated for?
A compensable workers’ compensation claim is when personal injury is caused to an employee by accident or occupational disease arising out of and in the course of employment. In the State of Nebraska, if you have been injured on the job, even if you were negligent, you may be entitled to benefits.
Depending on your particular injury, you may be entitled to not only have your medical and hospital bills paid, but you may be paid a weekly income for the time you missed from work. You might also be compensated for your temporary, permanent or partial disability or if you can no longer perform the work you had been trained to do. This would apply to you if you were hired in Nebraska or, at the time you were injured, you were performing work in Nebraska or your employer was principally located here.
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.
