If you get hurt at work, hiring an experienced Las Vegas workers compensation attorney can protect your rights and help you receive the benefits you deserve.
Nevada laws allow injured workers to receive compensation for lost wages, medical treatment and rehabilitation but your actions following an accident can have a significant impact on the outcome of your claim.
The first thing you must do is notify your employer immediately and then seek appropriate medical treatment immediately following the incident that caused your injuries. You must follow your physician’s advice and make sure you show up for all appointments. Your doctor may prescribe medication, order physical therapy or advise you to avoid certain activities during your recovery. Failure to follow these instructions can work against you.
You should seek a consultation with a qualified lawyer before speaking with any representative from your employer’s insurance company. The insurance provider will be eager to send you to doctors they work with as soon as possible, which may not be in your best interest. Your lawyer will want to determine which doctor is best for you.
The experienced lawyers at Greenman, Goldberg, Raby, and Martinez will handle all aspects of your claim allowing you to focus your attention on recovery. If you are injured in a work related accident, call 702-388-GGRM (4476) for a free consultation with a Las Vegas workers compensation attorney to discuss the facts of your case.
