What you can expect from your employer after a work accident

Nebraska employees know an injury in the workplace can lead to complications that can affect many areas of their lives. If you are a worker and you experience an injury due to a workplace accident, you know it is important to take steps to protect your interests and seek the recovery you deserve.

One way you can seek recovery after a work accident is by filing a workers' compensation insurance claim. However, this process is complex, and you may be unsure of where to begin or what type of benefits you will receive. It can be helpful to understand more about this process, including what you can expect from your employer.

Avoid fatigue and you may also escape other trucking hazards

Truckers face an endless list of hazards as they navigate the busy roads — and often-dangerous conditions — across different state lines. If you are a member of this industry, you will likely want to know that your employer has workers' compensation insurance in place. Despite strict rules that govern the hours that you may drive before mandatory rest periods, a number of additional occupational hazards may threaten your safety.

Although most of the dangerous conditions result from fatigue and drowsiness, maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help protect you. However, eating healthy and regularly in this industry could be challenging, and you will have your work cut out for you when you try to find healthy meals at truck stops.

Thus, it is important to be aware what you have to do in order to make a claim for UM/UIM benefits.
