Personal Injury Attorneys in Lovelock
Lovelock is the only city in Pershing County. It was named for a nearby medium-security men’s prison and a Cold War-era gunnery range.
The city used to be a stop for settlers who were on their way to California. After that, it became a train depot. Now the town is mainly driven by tourism and employment at the nearby prison.
Workers’ Compensation for Lovelock employees
Regardless of their occupation, when a Lovelock employee has suffered a work-related illness or injury, he or she may be entitled to benefits from his or her employer’s workman’s comp insurance company.
An employer is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in Nevada. As a result, when an employee is injured or becomes sick due to something work-related, he or she can submit a claim to his or her employer and received benefits.
Workman’s compensation benefits typically include:
- Medical expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Vocational rehabilitation;
- Death benefits for surviving family members, if the employee was killed due to a work-related illness or injury
There are deadlines when it comes to filing for workers’ comp, so it is important that the claim is made in a timely manner. If the employee misses the deadline, this could threaten his or her ability to obtain benefits.
Unfortunately, claims can be denied, even if they are legitimate. When this happens, the employee is entitled to appeal the decision. If you have been denied workman’s compensation benefits and believe you are entitled to them due to a work-related injury or illness, it would be wise to hire a workers’ comp attorney that can review your claim and help you file an appeal.
