Each year, many Nebraska workers are killed or seriously injured while at work. Because employers and insurance companies want to reduce costs, the majority of first-time applicants do not receive their full benefits.
The Omaha workers comp lawyers at Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop, P.C. are prepared for the kinds of tactics and methods used by insurers to deny a workers’ compensation claim. We fight aggressively to help our clients successfully receive all that is due to them.
A complex interaction of competing laws arises when someone suffers an injury at work. State worker compensation, private insurance, OSHA and product liability laws come into play, and may even clash over responsibility for an injured worker’s claim.
Coordinating and putting into place the various coverage benefits and laws is critical to keeping bills from accumulating, and getting the employee back to work as soon and as safely as possible.
