My brother in law is employed by a manufacturer in NE. He was injured last year and received spinal fusion surgery on 1/30/07. Due some other physical and mental issues my husband and I moved him temporarily to our home in Missouri. He was not notified of the right to claim his neck injury as workers comp. Now he is having pain and numbness in his hands. Today he was diagnosed as having carpal tunnel. His employer states that in order to process a workers' comp claim in NE the employee must be on site. Just trying to find out if this is true or if they are trying once again not to pay. Someone please let me know if you have info.
