SPEAK WITH A REPRESENTATIVE NOW
Thousands of people are injured while they are on the job in Nevada every year, and many years ago the legal system was such that people in this position would have had to sue employers that refused to provide them with compensation. Over the years, Nevada and every other state in the country has put together a system of laws designed to provide injured workers with a uniform process and set of available benefits to help them get back on their feet and back to work as quickly as possible. These laws were also enacted to provide employers with some cost certainty.
What has emerged is a system of laws that is complicated, confusing and generally not known by the people who need to depend on them the most. Nevada workers’ compensation law is supposed to be a relatively straightforward system, but far too many people who are hurt at work simply rely on their employers to help them through the process of pursuing and obtaining benefits. This leads to many negative situations and outcomes, and injured workers are often left wondering what they’re supposed to do – they are injured, they can’t work, they’re not generating income and their claim has been denied or delayed for some reason.
This is where the team at Bernstein & Poisson comes in, as we have been helping injured workers obtain the benefits that they needed and deserved for 30 years. We understand all of the intricacies and nuances of Nevada workers’ compensation law and we understand how to deal with insurance companies that may be treating an injured worker poorly. In short, we get things done for our clients as they struggle to recover from their physical injuries. This is the least we can do for people who encounter this serious challenge.
Over the years, we’ve come to learn more than a few things about the injured workers we serve, and we apply those lessons to every case that we handle. For instance, we know that injured workers want to get back to work. They are not interested in malingering or in grabbing as many benefits as possible. We also know that people who are injured at work do not necessarily want to be in this position. If it was up to them, they never would have been injured in the first place. However, many of them have families to support and they need to do what they can to make sure they provide for them.
This is why people who encounter problems with their claims are often at a loss with how to proceed. They are not attorneys and they are not insurance executives – they are people that just want to get through a difficult time and move on with their lives, but someone or something is preventing that from happening. The Nevada workers’ compensation lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson help cut through those delays so injured workers can go about focusing on the rest of their recovery without having to worry about how they’re going to pay their bills, feed their families or get the medical treatments that they need.
