When you’re ready to recoup the money needed to cover lost wages, medical expenses, and vocational rehab, call (725) 900-9000. to get started.
Is Your Summerlin Workplace Accident Covered Through Workers’ Compensation?
It is important for all Nevada workers to be familiar with the state’s workers’ compensation laws, so that they are prepared in the event of an accident. Every business who employs one or more workers is required to offer workers’ compensation insurance; if an accident occurs and it is discovered that the company does not have coverage, said company will face steep penalties, and may be liable for your expenses and income as a result.
In Nevada, anyone who can be categorized as an “employee” is entitled to workers’ comp coverage, including part-time workers, temporary workers, farm and ranch workers, certain remote employees, and even illegal immigrant workers.
In order to receive coverage for your Summerlin accident, your employer does not need to be primarily at fault, and the accident itself does not need to occur on company property. Some hypothetical examples of accidents that are covered through workers’ compensation include:
Workers who are injured during an episode of workplace violence
Accidents that occur at conferences, conventions, or meetings that were attended on company time or in the scope of your employment
Diseases or medical conditions that were contracted due to exposure to toxic chemicals, gases, or substances
Accidents that occur due to unsafe working conditions or equipment
Car accidents that take place while driving company vehicles during work hours
Accidents that occur in parking lots, bathrooms, break rooms, or locker rooms
Let us evaluate your situation and determine the best path to take to help you achieve your goals. Give our injury attorneys a call today at (725) 900-9000.

Recovering Compensation For Injuries Suffered at the Workplace
Even though the workers’ compensation program was designed with workers’ rights in mind and is intended to protect injured workers from having to deal with debilitating expenses, it’s unfortunately not always so easy to accomplish. Like all insurance companies, your employer’s workers’ comp provider will always try to pay the least amount possible in order to protect their bottom line. As a result, it is very common for injured workers to have their workers’ comp claims delayed, denied, or countered with low settlement offers.
Shady insurance adjusters and opposing counsel love to pull workers’ comp claims apart to look for any reason not to pay full compensation. Most of the time, they don’t need to do much other than persuade workers to take low settlements, as most workers don’t want to make a big deal out of their workplace accident. There are a couple reasons for this: the first of which is that most workers automatically assume that accidents are their fault, and fear retaliation; the other is that companies often try to evoke a sense of loyalty to the “team,” and workers usually don’t want to go through with an expensive claim that might “hurt” the business, even though workers’ compensation benefits are their right. Don’t fall into this trap–call experienced workers’ comp attorneys today.
