Have you been injured on the job in Nebraska, or while working for a Nebraska employer in another state? You need to work to take care of yourself and your loved ones, and being injured can interfere with your ability to do that. Workers Compensation Attorney Jerome Okolo can guide you through the process so you can collect the compensation you deserve on your Worker’s Compensation claim.
Under law, employees are qualified to specific benefits when they are injured or become ill as a result of their job. The compensation process is complicated, and most people don’t realize what all they are entitled to under law. Nebraska Attorney Jerome Okolo has successfully gotten his clients the results they need.
Why is my employer denying my claim?
With a few exceptions, employers in Nebraska are required to carry special insurance. If their employees become injured or ill because of the job, this insurance covers their expenses. For different reasons, employers may tell you that they are not responsible for your injuries. They may not want to be seen as negligent, or more likely they just want to save money.
Omaha Workers Compensation Attorney Jerome Okolo understands that many, if not most, claims are denied initially. But if you have a workplace injury you need help fast. You need to receive medical treatment, and you very likely need to take time off for medical care or to recover. You may even have a temporary or permanent disability which interferes with your ability to support yourself and your family. Nebraska Attorney Jerome Okolo can help you.
What should you do if you think you may have a case?
Most people happily never have to learn about what benefits they qualify for when they are injured on the job. But if you have a workplace injury or even a disability and you are being denied compensation, Omaha Workers Compensation Attorney Jerome Okolo can help you fight for your rights.
