Workers’ compensation laws were put into place in order to provide financial support for employees who were injured, disabled or killed while on the job. Monetary support is provided through workers’ compensation insurance held by the employer to the employee that was hurt or disabled, or to the family of the employee that was killed.
Although every Las Vegas business is required to have workers’ compensation to financially protect their employees, you may still need the assistance of a Las Vegas workplace injury attorney if you are injured while on the job. The following are five reasons why you should choose GGRM as your Las Vegas workplace injury attorney:
1. We will determine if you have a case
We will look over all information regarding your case, including medical records that prove you were injured and whether there is proof your injury is job related. We will also make sure you are eligible, since not all jobs are covered by workers’ compensation. For example, real estate agents, sole proprietors, in-home daycare workers and unpaid volunteers are generally not covered under workers’ compensation laws.
2. We will help you file your workers’ compensation claim
Filing a workers’ compensation claim is a lot easier said than done. There's a lot of paperwork involved and the entire process can be quite confusing and difficult, not to mention time consuming. Filling out the paperwork improperly or failing to submit the required information or documents could result in your claim being denied. We will ensure your claim is properly filed and will help guide you through the entire claims process.
3. We can appeal a wrongfully dismissed claim
If your workers’ compensation claim was denied, we will go over your case to determine if it was wrongfully denied. If it was, we will help you put together an appeal. Having us by your side will help greatly improve your chances of a successful appeal so you can get the support you need for any required medical treatment.
4. We are highly experienced in workers’ compensation law
We specialize in personal injury law and workers’ compensation law, which means we are extremely knowledgeable in both areas. Additionally, we have over 40 years of experience practicing law in the Las Vegas area.
