Workers' Compensation Attorney in Lincoln & Grand Island
Assisting Lancaster & Hall County Clients with Workers' Compensation Claims Throughout Nebraska
In workplaces throughout Lincoln & Grand Island and surrounding areas, injuries on the job are common. Ranging from minor mishaps to severe incidents, these injuries are often unpredictable and unpreventable. They can result in long-term disability or impairment, bringing both physical trauma and the burden of medical expenses and potential loss of income.
Recognizing the need to protect worker interests, the state of Nebraska has instituted a special court system exclusively designed to handle workers' compensation claims. The intent is to ensure that injured workers receive due compensation for their injuries and have their medical care costs covered.
However, dealing with insurance companies often proves to be a formidable obstacle. Despite the measures put in place by the state, insurance companies frequently employ tactics to minimize their liability, making it tough for injured workers to receive the assistance and compensation they rightfully deserve. This often results in denied claims, leaving workers under-compensated and struggling to keep up with mounting healthcare costs.
