Helping Injured Workers in Nevada Obtain Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Injured workers throughout Nevada are generally entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if they suffer a work-related injury or illness. Nonetheless, employers and their insurance carriers will sometimes deny or reduce the amount of workers’ compensation benefits that an injured worker receives. If this is the case, a lawyer who understands the Nevada workers’ compensation system can be instrumental in helping you get full and fair workers’ compensation benefits.

For more than 30 years, Las Vegas workers’ compensation lawyer Robert M. Apple has been helping injured workers obtain maximum compensation following a work-related injury or illness, including workers’ compensation benefits and third-party personal injury damages.

Nevada Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Under Nevada workers’ compensation laws, injured workers are generally entitled to benefits that may include the following:

  • Medical treatment
  • Lost time compensation (TTD/TPD)
  • Permanent Partial Disability (PPD)
  • Permanent Total Disability (PTD)
  • Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Dependent’s payments in the event of death
  • Other claims-related benefits or expenses

Nevada Workers’ Compensation Claim Process

Though injured workers are generally entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, there are certain legal and procedural requirements that must be followed in order to obtain workers’ compensation benefits. For instance, in order to begin the workers’ compensation claim process, the injured worker must complete Form C-4, which is provided by the treating physician at the time of initial medical treatment. Additionally, a workers’ compensation claim must be filed with 90 days of the date of injury or knowledge of the work-related illness. Injured workers must also comply with a number of requirements regarding medical treatment and the supporting information that must be provided in order to obtain workers’ compensation benefits.

If you disagree with a claim determination, you may appeal the decision to the Hearings Officers with the Nevada Department of Administration within 70 days from the date of the insurer’s determination or to the Appeals Officer within 30 days of a managed care organization’s determination.
