Nevada State Workers’ Compensation

Nevada State Workers' Compensation

Employers in the state of Nevada are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This means that if you receive an injury or become ill on the job because of conditions at work, you can file a workers’ compensation claim to seek compensation for your injuries.

Compensation can include lost wages, medical and rehabilitation costs, and vocational training if you are unable to continue at your old job. To ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation owed to you by law, it is important to speak with a qualified Las Vegas workers’ compensation lawyer.

Call (702) 505-8115 to schedule an evaluation of your case.

Workers’ Compensation Insurance in Nevada

Business owners in Nevada who fail to comply with the mandatory insurance face a variety of penalties including a $10,000 fine, financial responsibility for all costs related to a worker’s injury, and possible closure of the business.

Employers are also restricted from firing employees who file workers’ compensation claims. If you have been fired after you filed a claim, you should contact an attorney.

Nevada State Workers’ Compensation Fund

Prior to the year 2000, the state of Nevada provided workers’ compensation through a state fund. Since then all disability benefits have been paid by private insurers working for employers. Insurance companies will usually put the best interests of the employers first, not the injured employee.

After you have received an injury on the job, you should immediately seek medical treatment and notify your employer, which will start the claims process. Your next step should be to contact the law of Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith to schedule a free and confidential consultation with an attorney. A workers’ compensation attorney will evaluate the details of your case to determine how to proceed.
