Injury Lawyer Greg Coffey: How Workers Compensation Works in Nebraska:
You got hurt on the job and you’re wondering what kinds of injuries you can get workers comp for in Nebraska and what types of benefits you can get:
Here are the workers comp benefits you can get in Nebraska:
- medical expenses: For most injuries that happen at work, an injured worker is entitled to have 100 percent of their medical expenses covered including mileage to and from the care facility. THE IMPORTANT THING IS THAT THE INJURY IS DOCUMENTED AND CAN BE PROVEN IN COURT THAT IT HAPPENED AT WORK. THAT’S WHY IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT TO FILE AN INJURY REPORT RIGHT AFTER THE INJURY OCCURS.
- temporary disability: If you’re away from work while recovering from the injury, you could get a percentage of the wages that you’re missing out on.
- permanent disability: If you’re stuck with a permanent injury after your recovery is complete, you could be entitled to get compensated for the permanent injury
- vocational rehabilitation: If you’re too injured to perform the work the way you used to do before the injury occurred, your employer must still put you back to work in some capacity and pay you disability benefits while you’re going through rehabilitation or re-education.
