Are You Covered by Workers’ Compensation?
In Nevada, employers are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance to help support the needs of injured workers. Your company most likely has this insurance and it is there to be used. If your company does not have workers’ comp coverage and you get hurt, your employer may face significant fines and penalties, and the company will be liable for your medical bills and lost wages.
All workers who are classified as employees in Nevada are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. This includes illegal immigrant workers, temp workers, and farm workers as well as people who work from home under certain conditions.
To be eligible for benefits in Nevada, you do not have to be injured on company property and your employer doesn’t have to be proven to be at fault. You can collect workers’ compensation benefits if:
- You are injured in an accident while driving a company vehicle on company business
- You’re hurt in the parking lot, breakroom, or locker room
- If you injuries happen while attending a meeting or conference on company time or in the scope of your job
- If you are exposed to dangerous chemicals, fumes, or other toxic substances in your workplace
- If you are a victim of workplace violence
- If you contract a disease or other medical condition because of the conditions at work
Recovering Money for Workplace Injuries
Although the workers compensation system is designed to be user-friendly and is intended to protect the rights of employees who are hurt on the job, recovering benefits isn’t always cut and dry. Like any insurance company, your company’s workers compensation insurer is more concerned about their own bottom line than they are about your well-being. Therefore, denied claims, low settlement offers, and significant delays are common.
Fast-talking insurance adjusters and experienced legal teams will go to great lengths to avoid paying work injury claims. And when you’re dealing with a painful or disabling injury, and your bank account is running on empty, you need medical care and it can be difficult to remain focused and stand your ground when it comes to getting paid. Don’t give up. Don’t settle for less than your case is worth. Call us instead.
We can help you from the time we file your initial claim, during the appeals process, and when we take your case all the way to the Nevada Supreme Court if the need arises.
