Are you a worker in the state of Nebraska? Does your job entail physical work on a regular basis? If so, you may have some concerns about your health.
Although you may have been able to avoid trouble in the past, you never know what the future will bring. There could come a time when you suffer a head or back injury. If this happens, it's possible that you will require medical attention. Furthermore, you may not be able to return to work right away.
There are many types of head and back injuries, including but not limited to: concussion, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and a rotated disk.
If you suffer any type of workplace injury, your first order of business is your health. You should not wait a single minute to receive medical attention, as this is the best way to understand your injury and how to treat it.
From there, you should get a better understanding of how the injury will impact your future. For instance, you may not be able to return to work for several months (or longer).
In this case, you'll want to file a claim for workers' compensation benefits. This money will allow you to get by until you feel good enough to return to your job.
At our law firm, we help people who have been denied workers' compensation benefits. If you know you qualify for compensation, if you've been denied for any reason, you may need professional assistance.
A head or back injury has a way of changing your life forever. This is why you should receive medical attention, while also learning more about your legal rights.
