Qualified Nebraska Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Injured in the Workplace? Call Watson & Carroll in Omaha or Lincoln

When an employee is injured at work, he or she is often worried about fair treatment. They ask these questions:

  • How will I pay for my home, my car, and my groceries?
  • How will I pay my medical bills?
  • When can I go back to work?
  • Will I lose my job?
  • How will this injury change my future?
  • Will I hurt my case if I do not hire an attorney soon enough?
  • Do I need to hire an attorney?

As Omaha workers' compensation attorneys, we will help you work through these questions and determine the compensation you deserve.

At times, the workers' compensation system is resistant to paying injured workers the compensation owed under Nebraska law. Employers have their team of insurance representatives, doctors, nurse case managers, and attorneys to defend their interests. The moment the injury happens, in many cases, they assemble their team to reduce or deny the compensation owed to you. You do not have to do this alone. We are here for you.

Watson & Carroll will surround you with our team and fight for your benefits. Our experienced attorneys understand the workers' compensation system and how to get injured workers paid. If you are ready to get the answers and the compensation you deserve, please call our team.

Types of Benefits Under Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation benefits vary depending on the extent of your injury, whether you return to work, if you have permanent restrictions, and what part of your body is injured. We are here to help prepare your case and give you the best chance at a successful claim.

You may be entitled to the following benefits:

  • Medical expenses
  • Doctor appointments
  • Medical equipment and devices
  • Hospital bills

Why Claims Are Denied

An employer may inappropriately deny or impede a workers’ compensation claim with a variety of tactics. The employer may delay filing the claim or encourage the employee to not file. The employer may give confusing or misleading information. The employer may deny the employee was injured while working. The insurance company may deny the seriousness of the injury. The employee must handle the claim diligently and carefully. The smallest error or problem can cause a delay or denial of benefits. You need someone by your side who knows the rules, laws, and tactics and who will fight for everything you deserve.

The Nebraska workers' compensation attorneys at Watson & Carroll know how to achieve success. We are here to help guide and protect you through your claim.
