Nearly every employer in Nevada that has one or more employees is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, which provides benefits for most work-related injuries, illnesses, diseases and accidents.
Because Nevada is a no-fault state, employees do not have to prove their employer is liable in order to receive workers’ compensation benefits. You must only file a claim and gain approval to receive financial benefits and medical treatment.
Unfortunately, the process of obtaining benefits can be extremely complicated. Insurance companies may try to claim that your injuries developed outside of work or that they are not as serious as you claim.
Without aggressive representation from an experienced attorney, your claim could be reduced, delayed or denied, causing you to miss out on valuable benefits that are rightfully yours.
