Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Primm
Primm was once known as “State Line” because of its location on Interstate 15 where it crosses the border between California and Nevada. The name was changed to avoid confusion with another city located in Nevada. Primm was chosen because of the last name of the original developer of the town.
Primm’s economy is primarily based on the three casinos located in the state that are mainly visited by visitors from Southern California as they are on their way to and from Las Vegas. Primm only has about 436 residents, and most of its full-time employees work for the casinos.
Helping Primm Workers
When an individual has a business, he or she has an obligation to keep the premises in safe condition, not just for visitors but also for employees. When an employee has suffered a work-related injury or illness, the employee has the right to claim workers’ compensation benefits from his or her employer.
Workman’s comp benefits make it so that an injured or sick employee does not have to sue his or her employer for damages. All employers in Nevada are required to carry workers comp insurance so that the employer can cover the worker’s issue.
Employees that have been injured or become sick due to their job are entitled to:
• Medical expenses
• Lost wages
• Job rehabilitation
Additionally, if an employee has died due to a job-related injury or illness, that employee’s surviving family members may be entitled to death benefits.
Filing for workman’s comp can be a difficult process due to paperwork that must be filled out and rules regarding deadlines for filing. If you, or a loved one, have suffered a job-related injury or illness, it is important to consult with an experienced workman’s comp attorney who can tell you how to proceed with your claim.
