Workers Compensation Claims
Nebraska Statue: 48-101. Personal injury; employer’s liability; compensation.In order to properly file a workers compensation claim you must due the following to ensure the best results:
- Report the injury to a superior as soon as it happens – this way no subsequent claims may be denied.
- Seek medical treatment right away – if you think your injury might get better on its own and you wait to see a doctor, you’re actually hurting your rights to future claims. Workers’ compensation claims require documentation of your injury. The best proof of documentation is provided by a doctor’s report of treatment.
- Know which doctor to see – many workers’ compensation plans have rules dictating specific doctors you can see for work-related injuries. If you participate in a managed care plan, you may have to seek treatment from a doctor within that program. Changing physicians is difficult in the middle of a workers’ compensation claim, so make sure that the doctor you see is one you feel comfortable with for the remainder of your treatment.
