Here are some of the most common questions our clients have about their cases:
What benefits Can a Las Vegas Workers Compensation Lawyer Help Me to Receive?
- Medical Expenses – Your employer’s insurance provider may pay for all medical costs related to treating your injury.
- Lost Wages – You may be entitled to recover a certain percentage of your lost wages based on whether your injury leads to partial or total disability and whether the disability is temporary or total.
- Vocational Rehabilitation – If your injury causes a permanent physical impairment that prohibits you from returning to your job, you may be eligible for vocational rehabilitation to receive training for a new position.
- Expense Reimbursement – In some cases, you may be eligible to receive per diem and travel expense reimbursement associated with necessary medical treatment.
If I am an illegal immigrant worker, am I still entitled to receive worker compensation?
Yes. Medical treatment and lost wage benefits are available to any person who is working for an employer regardless of whether the employment is lawful or unlawful. Illegal aliens are not, however, eligible to receive vocational rehabilitation services.
Is there a deadline for filing my claim?
Yes. You must notify your employer of your injury within 7 days. If your claim is denied or you feel you are not receiving the benefits you deserve, the qualified attorneys at Greenman, Goldberg, Raby and Martinez can help you navigate the appeals process.
