What kinds of Injuries and Diseases are covered under Nevada Workers Compensation Laws?

The Simple answer is every kind of injury or disease is covered if you can show that it arose while you were performing your normal job duties. If you sustain an accident (i.e. lifting a box) and you feel back pain, then that will always be covered as a compensable industrial injury as long as you have a physician directly relating your condition to your employment.

If you are legal secretary, and are required to type all day long, and you see a physician who diagnoses you with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, then that will also be considered a compensable Occupational Disease. The important thing to remember is always to report any accidents promptly. Although Nevada Law allows seven days to report an accident, the longer you wait to report it, the great the chances the insurer will deny your claim. With an Occupational disease, you should report it once a physician advises you that your condition is due to your employment.

In order to start a claim, you must FIRST report the injury or disease to your employer and fill out a C-1 Notice of Injury form and list ALL body parts that are affected. After completing that form, you should immediately see a physician to document your injuries. At the doctor’s office, you should be given a C-4 form to fill out what happened and again list ALL body parts that are injured. The physician will fill out the bottom portion and send it to the insurer to begin the process of accepting or denying your claim. If you have any questions, you should seek advice from an attorney who specializes in Workers Compensation.
