Do I Qualify for Nebraska Workers Comp? 

Most people have to work in this country. You have to work to earn a living for yourself and your family. The workplace has become safer over the years, as laws have been created to make the workplace safer for workers. That doesn’t mean that you can never be injured at work, however. 

When you’ve been hurt on the job, you might be scared and unsure of what you should do. You have probably heard of workers compensation in Nebraska, but you might not understand how this program works. You need to learn how it works, and you need to learn whether you qualify for benefits. 

If you qualify, it could make your life a little easier to deal with after an injury at work. Read on to learn more about whether you qualify to file a workers comp claim in Nebraska.

Who Qualifies for Workers Compensation Benefits in Nebraska?

Almost all who are employed in the state of Nebraska are covered under workers compensation. If an employer has even one employee, then that employer is required to carry workers compensation benefit coverage. 

Chances are, you are covered, though there are a few exceptions who aren’t covered, such as federal workers, domestic workers, and some agricultural workers.

To qualify for benefits, you need only to be injured or become ill due to your employment. You also can’t have willfully been negligent. For instance, causing your own accident to hurt yourself intentionally so you could obtain workers compensation benefits would disqualify you from receiving benefits. 

To learn more about your right to file a workers compensation claim in Nebraska, you can ask a lawyer at our firm in a free phone call.

What Types of Benefits Could I Receive?

If you’re wondering if you can file a workers comp claim, then you probably have good reason to wonder. You are probably worried about how you will pay your bills if you are hurt and can’t work. You are probably worried about how you will pay the medical expenses that your injury has resulted in.

The good news is that if your workers comp claim is successful, you could receive money to pay for your medical bills. You can also receive wage replacement payments that can help you make it through until you can return to work. Some people who’ve been seriously injured could qualify for additional benefits.

For instance, if your injury prevents you from continuing in the job you had before the accident, you could receive money to pay for vocational training.
