    What to do if you are injured on the job

    If you have been injured on the job, there are specific steps you must take to ensure you remain eligible for workers’ compensation insurance protection. These steps include:

    • Report the injury immediately. Any type of injury should be reported immediately and the proper paperwork should be filled out by you and the supervisor so that the claim process can begin.
    • Get medical care. Regardless of the type of injury, make sure you are examined by a medical professional. This ensures your condition and injury are documented and any proper medical is provided. Do not delay in treatment.
    • Document everything you remember about the event. In the future, this information will be very relevant to your case. Write down everything you remember from witnesses to the event, the cause of the accident, the time and weather if relevant, and any information about your injury when it occurred and prior to medical treatment.
    • Follow medical directions. It is very important for you to follow all medical care directions and make all medical appointments. Workers’ compensation adjustors will assume you are no longer in need of medical care or that you do not want to make a full recovery from your injury if you do not follow medical care instructions.
    • Light duty options. If your employer can provide you with light duty options for your job, you must make an effort to return to work. If you return and it is too physically demanding for your condition, speak with your attorney so they can immediately notify the workers’ comp adjustor. Failure to comply with light duty work if offered, however, can result in a termination of benefits. It is always in your best interest to at least try light duty.

    How are worker’s compensation payments calculated?

    Nevada law regarding workers’ compensation states that workers’ compensation will pay 66-1/3 percent of your average monthly wage. These benefits are automatic when you are injured, and your injury will keep you out of work for an extended period of time. There are no state minimums for wage reimbursement.

    Report the injury to your employer immediately to get the most out of a workers’ compensation claim. Seek medical care, and understand that it may be appropriate to get a second opinion. If the employer doesn’t immediately pay what you deserve under the law, you can challenge their decision. It’s important to keep track of deadlines and always continue with your medical care to get the most out of a workers’ compensation claim.

You can receive payment for lost wages and may also qualify for an additional amount to compensate you for permanent disability.

    What is workers’ comp law in Nevada?

    Workers’ comp law requires qualifying employers to pay certain benefits to victims who are hurt at work. There is no requirement for the employer to be at fault. Employers must purchase workers’ compensation insurance, and they have limited time to approve or deny a claim.

    Workers’ comp law for employees requires a worker to make a timely report of their injury or illness. If the report is late, the employee may be prohibited from receiving maximum benefits. Available benefits may include treatment costs and compensation for permanent and temporary disabilities. A disability may be completely disabling, or the victim may be able to continue to work in some capacity. Burial and death benefits may be available when a death occurs during the scope of employment.

    A look at workers’ compensation insurance

    Workers’ compensation insurance, or workers’ comp, is a type of no-fault insurance required by the state of Nevada to protect injured workers and their employers. Nevada requires that all businesses carry worker’s comp insurance, even if it is a family-owned business with only relatives as employees. The only exception to this rule is if a business is a sole proprietor and the sole proprietor is the only person employed by the company.

    Workers’ comp coverage begins the moment that an employee starts work. There are no waiting periods for coverage, and all employees are covered regardless of their classification as part-time or full-time workers. Under Nevada law, illegal immigrants are also protected under workers’ compensation even if they receive their pay illegally. However, illegal immigrants are not entitled to vocational rehabilitation programs through the insurance program.

    Speak to one of our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys

    It is essential you speak to a workers’ comp attorney as soon as possible after your injury occurs. All too often, workers’ comp adjustors are looking at their bottom line, not the injured party’s health. They have been known to deny treatments and force people back to work before they fully recover. Hiring an attorney will protect your rights and ensure you can recover damages.
