Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Las Vegas

You Deserve Experienced Counsel After a Work-Related Injury

Thousands of people are injured while 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, every 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 can lead 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 yet their claim has been denied or delayed for some reason.

What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?

If you have been injured on the job and are unable to work and generate income, you are likely entitled to workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation will cover:

  • Income when an employee is unable to work
  • Medical expenses relating to the worker’s injuries from the on-the-job accident
  • Rehabilitation

It is important to note that not all injuries are covered under workers’ compensation. If you are responsible for your own injuries, such as self-inflicted injuries, injuries suffered while committing a crime, or injuries suffered while impaired by alcohol or drugs, workers’ compensation will not cover you.

How to File a Workers’ Compensation Claim

Though the process of filing a workers’ compensation claim is supposed to be straightforward, there are many complicated and confusing issues workers must overcome to recover compensation. Many employees who have been hurt at work will rely on their employers to help them through the workers’ compensation process. This can lead to negative outcomes when pursuing and obtaining benefits with the injured worker often left wondering what to do. They find themselves in a difficult situation where they cannot work, cannot generate income and have their claim denied.

Fortunately, our experienced Las Vegas workers’ compensation lawyers are here to help.

Handling Your Las Vegas Workers’ Comp Case

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 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 regular 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.

Our Las Vegas workers’ compensation attorneys 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.
