Workers’ Compensation

Experienced Representation After You Have Been Injured On The Job

When you have been injured at work, you need to know your rights — your employer will! Your employer’s workers’ compensation carrier will hire legal counsel to try to minimize or altogether avoid paying compensation for your injury. Regardless of whether your employer is nice to you, the guidance of an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer is crucial to protect yourself. Filing a claim to recover the benefits to which you are entitled to is not being disloyal. It’s protecting the best interests of you and your loved ones.

John K. Green, Attorney at Law, in Omaha, Nebraska, has over 33 years of practice experience and extensive knowledge of the laws and procedures governing workers’ compensation. Attorney John Green is skilled at quickly identifying the critical issues in your case and finding effective solutions that meet your needs and objectives.

How We Will Help You

If you have been injured on the job, you probably have a lot of concerns:

  • What benefits are available to me?
  • Am I getting the full extent of what I’m entitled to receive?
  • How will I pay for medical treatment and prescriptions while I am not working?
  • How will I pay my living expenses without a source of income?
  • What if I never recover fully and can’t go back to my old job?
  • Will my job still be waiting for me when I am ready to go back to work?

Nebraska workers’ compensation laws were enacted to provide men and women money for medical and living expenses while they recover from a workplace injury. The law also provides compensation for any physical limitations that affect your ability to work in the future.

We have a comprehensive understanding of Nebraska workers’ compensation laws and can assist in all matters. We handle a wide range of workplace injury claims, including cases involving slip-and-fall accidents, repetitive stress injuries such as carpel tunnel, shoulder and arm injuries, neck and back injuries, and amputations.

Employers and their insurers often cite a variety of reasons for denying coverage, claiming that the accident wasn’t work-related, that the injury was caused by a preexisting condition, that you are ready to go back to work, or even that the accident didn’t happen.

We will aggressively fight attempts to deny your claim, advocating for the best possible recovery from the insurance carrier. We will assist you in determining the proper compensation amount, factoring in your average weekly wage, your specific impairment(s) and the extent of your injury. We will help you get the treatment you need and will assist you in securing vocational rehabilitation, if applicable.
