Nebraska Work Injury Attorneys

File a Work Injury Claim

Across the country, every day, thousands of worker’s sustain moderate to severe injuries while on the job. In most instances, the damage has accumulated over an extensive period of time and is only now revealing itself in the form of excruciating pain. In others, the injury is acute and fast acting, originating from something going terribly wrong. In either case, your employer has a duty to provide coverage for your injuries and lost wages. But unfortunately, this is not always the case. If you’ve been injured and need assistance receiving the proper compensation, contact the Nebraska personal injury attorneys at Cullan & Cullan LLC today. Let us help you get on the road to recovery. Call now - (402) 397-7600.

Don’t delay. Worker’s compensation claims are complex, demanding a great deal of resources on the part of the applicant. The sooner you are able to start the process and submit your claim, the better your odds will be at getting the necessary coverage. Additionally, if your accident was the result of third party negligence, you may have grounds to pursue legal action. For instance, if a shipping company that makes deliveries at your company backs over your foot or runs into you, causing severe fractures, you could hold them liable in a civil claim. Depending on the circumstances you could very well be entitled to:

  • Emergency medical transportation
  • Extensive hospital arrangements
  • Loss of wages or employment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Doctor’s visits

But it is up to you to make the first move. Contact an Omaha injury lawyer at Cullan & Cullan LLC today and let our expertise as both trial lawyers and clinical physicians work for you.

What Should I Do if I’ve Been Injured While at Work in Nebraska?

Depending on how the injury occurred, there are a number of routes you can take. But in each, it begins with talking to your employer. In some cases, this may be a foregone conclusion. Especially if the accident is particularly dangerous, such as an explosion, collapse or machine malfunction. But this also holds true in more gradual and subtle ways, such as back pain or potential hernias. Remember – the only way you will be able to receive compensation in either respect is by speaking with your employer first. They must be informed, otherwise you will have an uphill battle ahead of you, attempting to convince either a worker’s compensation board or a judge that you were injured in the manner you suggest.

After that, a visit to the doctor is in order. In all likelihood your employer will designate the hospital in which you should be treated, but this could vary depending on the immediate circumstances. Keep in mind that seeing a doctor is just as important as informing your employer; perhaps even more so.
