General Info – Workers Compensation
Workers compensation laws are designed to protect employees who have suffered from work related injuries. Before workers compensation was available, employees injured on the job were only able to pursue their employer through civil or torts law. Under Nevada workers’ compensation laws, employees injured or disabled are provided with fixed monetary awards, eliminating the necessity for expensive litigation.
An employer is required by law to carry workers compensation insurance. Should a employee become injured or ill due to circumstances surrounding their working conditions, the employee might be entitled to benefits. These benefits could include medical expenses, lost wages, vocational rehabilitation, and death benefits for the surviving family members. Under workers compensation, an injury as a result of, and in the course of the employment may qualify the worker for a workers compensation claim.
If you suffer an injury or illness while on the job, you should immediately seek medical attention. Employers should be notified about the situation as soon as possible so that a claim process can begin. If possible, your job injury lawyer should be consulted before speaking with the insurance company. A workers compensation insurance company and their attorneys are obligated to the employer, not the injured worker, so consulting with your own workers compensation lawyer can ensure that you receive the full benefits provided by law.
Will Filing a Claim Threaten my Job?
Some employees are worried that filing a claim or simply contacting a compensation lawyer will threaten their job with the company. It is unlawful for any employer to fire an employee for trying to receive workers’ compensation benefits. If an employer does act in any way that is prohibited by the law, the employee can further legal action. If you have any concerns about these laws or your job safety, contact us for free advice.
