What are your rights as an injured construction worker?

Construction is a dangerous job, but the inherent risks that come with this job do not preclude injured workers from a full and fair recovery. After an accident on a construction site, it can be beneficial for an injured Nebraska or Iowa worker to seek legal help in order to secure compensation from all available sources.

To what workers' comp benefits are Nebraska employees entitled?

First, don't confuse workers' compensation benefits with unemployment benefits. They are not the same. Workers' compensation is an insurance policy that is carried by employers to cover work-related injuries sustained by their employees. If an employee is injured while on the job, this insurance policy provides coverage for things such as medical expenses, loss of wages, and disability benefits.
