What Is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation insurance, also referred to as workman’s comp, is no-fault insurance that provides wage replacement and medical benefits to workers who are injured on the job. Nevada law requires most businesses to carry workers’ compensation insurance to protect workers from the costs and adverse impacts of work-related injuries and illnesses. Even family-owned businesses that only have family members as employees are required to maintain workers’ comp insurance.

How We Help Injured Workers

We can provide guidance with every aspect of the workers’ compensation claims process to improve your chances for success. We can help with:

Filing a Claim for Workers’ Comp Benefits
In Nevada, there are a number of deadlines that must be met, specific forms that must be filled out, and notifications that must be made when filing a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. To recover for your injuries, you must follow the guidelines precisely. Don’t lose your right to get paid for your work-related accident. Let us help you file your claim.
Getting Paid Through Third-Party Claims
Although workers’ compensation laws prevent injured employees from suing their employers when they’re hurt on the job, workers are not prohibited from filing third-party injury claims against other wrongdoers. If you’re hurt by defective equipment, for example, you may be entitled to money from the manufacturer or designer. Likewise, when another driver causes you to become injured in a work-related auto accident, you can sue the driver and his or her insurance company for your injuries. When other employees cause your injuries, however, things get a little bit more complicated. We can help you sort through the legal web to determine how you can collect maximum money for your injuries.
Appeals
We know the rules, we know what the law requires, and we want to be your voice when your claim is denied. We’ll make sure all the facts of your case are presented to ensure that the appeals and hearings officers can see the big picture.

Are You Covered By Workers’ Comp Insurance?

In Nevada, almost all workers with an employee/employer relationship are covered under workers’ comp. Since there is no waiting period for coverage, employees are eligible for work injury benefits the moment they start work, regardless of whether they work full-time or part-time. Independent contractors, subcontractors, and their employees are also covered in most cases. Even undocumented immigrants who are receiving their pay illegally are eligible for some workman’s comp benefits.
There are, however, some exclusions. Workers who are hired to perform work that is not in the course of the business, profession, trade, or occupation of the employer, domestic workers, and some performers may not be covered. When people who are not covered by workers’ compensation insurance are hurt on the job, there may be other legal remedies available.
Most injuries that happen at work are covered by workers’ comp insurance, but there are a few exceptions. If you need help determining whether you should file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits to pay for the costs of your illness or injury, give us a call. We’ll be happy to discuss your condition and its potential causes to see if you have a viable claim.

WHAT'S COVERED

Even if you were partially at fault for the incident that caused you to become injured or ill, you may still be entitled to workers’ comp benefits if your condition is a result of activity that was performed during the course of your job.
The aggravation of a pre-existing condition

When your preexisting condition is aggravated by the conditions of your job, you may be entitled to benefits. Having a pre-existing ailment, however, can complicate your claim, especially when your condition is related to a prior workers’ comp claim. We can help you sort through the red tape so you can get paid.

Accidents involving defective equipment, machinery, or safety gear

When the equipment or machinery at your job is defective or unsafe and you are hurt, you are entitled to benefits to pay for your injuries. In some cases, you may be able to collect money from manufacturers, suppliers, or maintenance companies through third-party injury claims in addition to collecting through your workers’ comp claim.

Exposures to hazardous substances

Hazardous chemicals and other dangerous substances can cause severe injuries that require medical attention right away. The effects of exposure may not be immediately apparent, however. In some cases, people don’t start showing symptoms for days, months, or even years after exposure to harmful substances. We can help you trace the source of your condition so you can get money for medical care.
