Thousands of Americans suffer injuries every year at work during the normal performance of their duties.
In Nevada, employers are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance to assist those who are hurt or disabled on the job. Unfortunately, not every injured worker gets their just compensation. Sometimes, to get the justice you and your family deserve, you need outside assistance in the form of workers’ compensation lawyers.
Our Las Vegas firm has litigated a wide variety of workers’ compensation cases covering a myriad of injuries and illnesses. Generally, any injury, illness, or death that occurs ‘in the course of employment’ can be pursued. Examples include:
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Struck by falling objects
- Machinery accidents
- Repetitive motion
- Workplace violence
- Chemical exposure
- Work-related vehicle accidents
This list is only the beginning of what’s pursuable with a workers’ compensation suit. The important thing is to remember that workers have every legal right to make a full claim whenever there’s been a medical necessity. Do not let others bully you into staying silent about your pain.
