Annual Statistical Report Published in the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court
Each year, the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court publishes a statistical report for injuries in the last 10 years. The statistical report summarizes the information reported by employers and insurers for work-related injuries and illnesses. This year, eight tables were created for injuries reported by:
• Age (at the time of injury)
• Part of Body
• Cause of Injury
• Nature of Injury
• Benefit Type
Upon examination, the statistical report demonstrates that workers’ compensation claims are consistently being raised and it is incumbent upon employers to make sure that its policies and procedures are up to date and in compliance with the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Act.
The Statistical report can be found at: http://www.wcc.ne.gov/publications/statisticalreport_03-12.pdf.
