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 your 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.

These guys are amazing. Helped me throughout the process. Always there when I need help. Inititailly called a law firm (the one that has lots of ads on the radio), but they declined my case. Van Law Firm accepted my case without a second thought! Kudos to Daniel, my case manager, and Amanda who expedited my payment process. Highly recommended.Milby Mags
Got in an accident at the beginning of the year and they have been awesome, especially with it being my first accident and me being like this. They have been very communicated, stayed in contact with me the whole time, giving me updates when there were any and even when there weren’t and answered any question I had. I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone I have talked to there has been very friendly. I would give them a 10 out of 10.Ethan Gullet
They made sure that my insurance company covered what I paid for them to which included the gap for my car that was totaled. My medical costs were taken care of and reduced substantially so I was able to get more on my settlement. My case manager, Will Garcia, was always helpful in assisting me and answering any questions I had. They really did an amazing job with my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of this type of legal help. Most lawyers do not help you with the recovery of the car and rental etc. They are amazing.Teresa Cuthbertson
