Nevada law is designed to protect workers who are injured while working regardless of what caused the injury. Employees injured in the course and scope of their job are entitled to many benefits, including having their medical bills paid, and receiving wages while off work. In the event of a life changing injury, workers may be eligible for retraining if they are unable to return to their job due to their injury. Injured workers may also be eligible for a disability rating settlement if they have a permanent injury.
Employers and their insurance companies often make the process extremely difficult, or outright deny workers access to the system. There are strict deadlines that an employee must meet to be covered for their industrial injury. If you or someone you know was injured while working it is critical that they speak with an experienced Workers Compensation attorney right away. If you were injured while working, call Willoughby Shulman Injury Lawyers to schedule a free consultation.
