Nothing is more frustrating than being injured on the job, losing income and not knowing what happens next. Your employer handed you a form to fill out, but you hated to be a complainer. All you wanted was to get back to work again, but your medical treatment is more than you can afford.
If you are involved in a work-related injury, it can be a traumatic time in your life and the life of your family. It can also turn into a complex legal matter. Nebraska is quite unique when it comes to injured workers. The State offers a myriad of benefits in an attempt to assist the injured worker. That's where we can help. Not many employees are aware of all the benefits they may be entitled to under the law when they are injured on the job.
Many cases involving workers' compensation claims involve people suffering an injury that aggravated physical damage that pre-dated the accident. Insurance companies that identify the pre-existing condition will do everything in their power to deny a claim. Our job is to fight aggressively to secure the benefits you deserve.
Many of the problems we seek compensation for are common: falls from scaffolds, manufacturing accidents, trucking accidents, back problems of nurses and home care attendants. But we also take cases that are less common — workplace violence, accidents caused by supervisors, nervous disorders, the aggravation of pre-existing conditions — even injuries to telecommuters at home.
The lawyers at the Law Office of Justin T. Wayne, LLC have years of experience dealing with workers' compensation cases. Nebraska workers' compensation law provides that employers or their insurance companies pay the benefits following your on-the-job injury. We have a thorough insight into the law and apply that knowledge to benefit you. We also recognize what is at stake when a hard-working professional is injured and unable to return to their job.
Please know that taking on your case means no financial risk to you. We work on a contingency basis, meaning that we get paid for our services only if you recover compensation for your injuries.
