Workers’ compensation is a type of mandatory insurance program that is designed to provide wage replacement coverage and medical benefits coverage to workers who are injured on the job in Nebraska, or who develop an occupational disease or illness as a direct result of their work.
The state of Nebraska requires most employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This type of insurance provides no-fault benefits to workers who are injured during the course of employment.
Being successful in a workers’ compensation claim is sometimes challenging. Often, injured workers are relieved to find out that they are going to receive the benefits they need, only to learn that there is a lien associated with their claims.
