If you do not completely understand workers' compensation law, you need someone who does. Someone who is not afraid of doing what is necessary to obtain justice, even if it means going to court. The lawyers at Brock Law Offices routinely try cases in the Nebraska Workers' Compensation Court, and you can benefit from that experience.
If you are here because you recently received a brochure from us and you were offended by getting a brochure from a lawyer, let me be the first to apologize. It is my name on the brochure, and it is my intention to avoid offending anyone. But, I am not going to stop mailing my brochures to victims of negligence and assaults. Here's why.
We only represent injured people. We do not represent insurance companies or self-insured companies in cases against injured people.
All workers' compensation claims are subject to a specific time limit on the filing of a lawsuit. This statute of limitations (SOL), which varies state by state, is to ensure cases are filed in a timely manner. If the SOL expires, no matter how legitimate the claim, it can be barred from ever being heard by the court.
A loading dock is a chaotic, dangerous place. On a typical work shift, dozens of semi-trucks come and go, various kinds of material-handling equipment move freight across the floor, and large numbers of employees work in and around the dock. To stay safe, you have to be acutely aware of your own actions, as well as the actions of others. Even then, you may be injured. You can fall off the dock, be run over by a truck, be pinned or crushed between a truck and the loading dock, or injure yourself while loading or unloading materials. Loading dock injuries run the gamut, from sprains and fractures, to amputations and crushing's to death.

Sexual assault is any type of forced or coerced sexual contact or behavior that happens without consent. Sexual assault includes rape and attempted rape, unwanted contact of a sexual manner, and sexual harassment or threats. In the United States, nearly one in five women has been raped and almost half of women have experienced another type of sexual assault. If you have been sexually assaulted, it is not your fault.
Brock Law Offices works with injured people all over the country, not just in Nebraska. A large part of our workers' compensation client base is made up of truck drivers, many of whom are over the road drivers who are often away from home for weeks at a time. One of the trends I have noticed, particularly among these types of drivers, is that many do not have an established primary care physician. Generally, they are healthy enough to have not needed this in their lives, or probably more often, they just don't have time and aren't home enough to establish this relationship. Unfortunately, not having a doctor who has treated you or an immediate family member in the past can lead to potentially unsuccessful results in an injured worker's claim for workers' compensation benefits.
