Job Injuries & Workers’ Compensation

Workplace Injuries in Las Vegas, Nevada

Injured workers throughout the State of Nevada are eligible to receive benefits by filing workers’ compensation claims when they have been hurt at on the job.

Every employer is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover injuries and illnesses caused by work conditions. These benefits cover lost wages, medical treatment and rehabilitation, job retraining, and may include temporary and permanent disability payments.

What Types of Injuries Are Covered Under Workers’ Compensation Law?

There is no complete or approved list of workplace injuries that are automatically covered or denied as workers’ compensation claims.

The key to getting your claim approved is displaying the connection between workplace injuries and the scope of your job duties.

Workplace injuries can include:

  • Repetitive Motion Injuries: Soft tissue damage from repeatedly lifting heavy objects in the same way, or conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Traumatic Physical Injuries: Slip and falls, forklift accidents, and explosions
  • Occupational Diseases: Illnesses caused by hazardous conditions like black lung disease for coal miners, or asbestosis for an insulation installer

The illness should be one that is not common to everyday life but those that can be caused by conditions in the employer’s work atmosphere.

What Should I Do If I Am Injured at Work in Las Vegas?

If you have been injured in a workplace accident in Las Vegas or diagnosed with an occupational disease, seek medical care right away.

A medical professional will not only treat your injuries but will also document them to formalize your claim. After receiving treatment, injured workers must notify their employers and provide proof that medical treatment has been received.

While seeking medical treatment, let the healthcare provider know that you will be filing a claim. They will be required to fill out a form and mail it within three business days of initial treatment.

The injury or diagnosis must be presented to your employer in writing. Your employer will also have a claim form on hand for you to complete, which must be submitted within seven business days.
