What Workers’ Comp Benefits Can You Receive?

When a worker is injured on the job, he or she must immediately report the injury to a supervisor. This will begin the workers’ compensation process in Nebraska, and will help ensure that the worker is covered when he or she seeks medical treatment.

Many workers want to know what sort of benefits they receive under the system. At Harris Law Offices, PC, LLO, we have 35 years of experience with Nebraska workers’ comp issues. Our founding lawyer, James R. Harris, will examine your specific case, and help you learn more about your options at this time.

What Benefits Are Available Under Workers’ Comp?

Each worker will have different benefits available, depending upon his or her situation. We will be able to provide you with an overview of the workers’ compensation process, and help you understand the benefits that you will be able to receive. Some of the workers’ compensation benefits that may be available to you include:

  • Compensation due to missed time from work, which will vary depending upon your average weekly wage
  • Payment of the medical bills connected to the treatment of your workplace injuries
  • Job retraining paid for by your employer if you need to find a different position when you are ready to return to the workplace
