Las Vegas Workers’ Compensation Claims Process
The process of pursuing workers’ compensation benefits in Las Vegas can be tricky. To ensure the best outcome, it is best to hire a workers’ compensation attorney who is experienced, specifically, in the laws of the state. Say you are injured while working. Your employer, by law, will have workers’ compensation insurance, which may entitle you to compensation for damages that may include:
- Medical coverage
- Lost Wages During the Recovery Process
- Vocational Rehabilitation
Protecting Your Best Interests
Each employer will have workers’ compensation insurance that will help you recover benefits. However, because the insurance carrier and its attorneys have the company’s best interests in mind, it is a good idea to have your lawyer present when filing a workers’ compensation claim to ensure your best interests are protected and to help you recover the full amount of benefits you are entitled to.
