Most court cases never reach trial and are usually settled before trial. Proper development of any lawsuit requires formal research, investigation and informed preparation for trial. This is done because the case may actually need to be litigated at trial or the matter may need to be discussed and argued in negotiating a settlement. Both situations require lawyers to have the necessary facts, law, and evidence to present the client’s case in the best light possible.
Injured Employee Workers’ Compensation
Our attorneys have over 70 years of combined experience litigating cases before the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court, Nebraska Court of Appeals, Nebraska Supreme Court, Iowa Workers’ Compensation Court and appellate courts. We possess a deep understanding of workers’ compensation statutes and case law. Thus, we have spent years pursuing and defending claims.
Nebraska and Iowa workers’ compensation laws are designed to protect workers and their dependents against the financial and economic hardships arising from work injuries or work-related death. While the workers’ compensation laws are complex, put simply, if you are an employee who has suffered an injury and/or death as a result of a work-related accident, you may very well be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. It is not uncommon for a workers’ compensation insurer to dispute a worker’s claim and deny workers’ compensation benefits. If you feel some or all of your benefits have been denied or reduced, you may wish to speak with an attorney.
