Posted by Tony Brock | Dec 15, 2021 | 0 Comments

An injured employee who is covered by the Nebraska Workers' Compensation Act may obtain benefits if:

  1. the injury was caused by an accident or disease that arose out of and in the course of his or her employment;
  2. the employee was not willfully negligent at the time of the injury;
  3. the employment was in the usual course of the trade, business, profession, or occupation of the employer; and
  4. the injury occurred in Nebraska; or

the employer was performing work in Nebraska or the employment was principally localized within this state, whether or not the injury occurred in Nebraska; or

the contract of hire was made in Nebraska and the employer was engaged in business or performing work in Nebraska, whether or not the injury occurred in Nebraska.

If an employee dies as a result of a work-related injury, the employee's dependents may also be entitled to benefits under the act.
