Case Summary

A-17-0227, Gerson Saul Del Cid Escobar (Appellee/Cross-Appellant) v. JBS USA (Appellant/Cross-Appellee)

Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court, Judge Julie A. Martin

Attorney for Appellant:  Dallas D. Jones

Attorney for Appellee:  Michael P. Dowd

Workers’ Compensation: Compensability of Injury

Action Taken by Compensation Court:  The compensation court found Appellee’s emergency medical treatment arose from his work-related injury and was therefore compensable. The compensation court also found that Appellee was entitled to temporary total disability benefits.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: On appeal, Appellant asserts the compensation court erred in finding that Appellee had proved that emergency medical treatment was related to his work-related injury and in finding that Appellee was entitled to temporary total disability benefits. On cross-appeal, Appellee argues the compensation court erred in not awarding him temporary total and temporary partial benefits from the date of the work-related injury through his maximum medical improvement.
