Lifecycle of a Personal Injury Lawsuit
Up to this point, we have attempted to resolve your personal injury claim with a representative of the other party’s insurance company without litigation. When negotiations with the insurance adjuster fail, for whatever reason, it is necessary to sue the other party in a court of law. In Nebraska, the statute of limitations for a negligence claim against a private party (person or business) is four years from the date of injury.
The relationship between employer and employee gives all the power to the side that provides both the opportunity and income. They tell you what to do, schedule the hours that you work, and pay you what they think you are entitled to.
When you suffer an injury while working, Nebraska statutes dictate what happens next. Laws are in place to protect injured employees and secure compensation for lost wages and medical expenses.
The Need For A Skilled Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Workers’ compensation is not at all a “do-it-yourself” process. Following the accident that left you seriously injured, adjusters and nurse case managers will tell you that everything they do is in your best interests. Providing them any information should be avoided. You need an ally, advocate and spokesperson.
Whether you are a documented or undocumented worker*, you need attorney James Walz.
At Walz Law Offices, we take on all aspects of workers’ compensation claims that range from falls to permanent spinal cord damage. Your job is to recover from the injuries you suffered on the job. Our job is to ensure that you receive the benefits you deserve.
Take Action and Contact Walz Law Offices
Time is of the essence following an accident at work. Before speaking to anyone, contact Walz Law Offices in Omaha. You can reach us by calling 800-504-1095 or sending us an email. For Spanish-speaking* residents, we have staff fluent in the language.
*Your immigration status is not an issue in workers’ compensation claims. Whether you are a documented or undocumented worker, you still “created wealth” for your employer. If you have been injured while working, you are entitled to compensation, whether you are in the country legally or not.
Trucking & Railroad Injuries
The trucking and railroad industries are the backbone of American commerce. Walz Law Offices knows how essential these employees are to our way of life, and the dangers they face on a daily basis.
Manufacturing, energy production, and other fields that require working with heavy equipment or volatile substances are some of the best-paying jobs in Nebraska.
Industrial accidents can occur in a split second, or over the course of years. Are we talking in riddles now? Not at all. Many industrial jobs entail doing the same task, dozens, or even hundreds of times a day, resulting in what’s known as repetitive stress injuries.
One out of five workers killed on the job in the United States is a construction worker — a sobering statistic, but not a surprising one. The Omaha, NE, work injury lawyers at Walz Law Offices work hard to help injured construction workers and their families hold negligent employers accountable, and get the injured party fully compensated for pain, suffering, lost wages, and medical bills.
