Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Las Vegas

No one wants to get injured at work, but accidents can happen. Mistakes and negligence in the maintenance or operations of heavy machinery can cause various kinds of injuries.

Even a slight slip and fall accident at work can result in a fracture that can make you lose a week’s wages or more.

Suffering from pain and injury is one thing. But dealing with medical bills is another matter. Fortunately, the law ensures that workers who are injured on the job are entitled to financial compensation.

However, you need to go through a series of steps to get the compensation you deserve. For that, you need an experienced Las Vegas workers’ compensation lawyer who can simplify the process for you.

Who Is Entitled to Workers’ Compensation

Nevada workers’ compensation covers employees who suffered injuries on the job. If you’re working out of state and suffered injuries there, you are still entitled to compensation as long as your employer is based in Nevada.

Before your workers’ compensation lawyer can help you, you need to share all the necessary details about the accident and the injuries you suffered. Call Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today to schedule a free consultation.

Workers’ Compensation Forms You Should Be Familiar With

If you’re injured at work, and you want to file for workers’ compensation, the first thing you have to do is notify your employer. This must be done by filing the appropriate form. Generally, you need to file a C-1 form, which is essentially a Notice of Injury or Occupational Disease - Incident Report. You need to complete this form within seven days of the accident. C-1 forms must be made available by your employer, but you can also find this form online.

As an employee, another form you must be familiar with is the C-4 form. This is called the Employee’s Claim for Compensation or Report of Initial Treatment. This form must be completed by you and your physician. You must submit this form to your employer and the workers’ compensation insurance provider within three days of treatment.

What Should I Tell My Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?

Accidents can happen in any type of workplace, though the risk is higher for workers in the construction, mining, and manufacturing industries. Many factors could lead to accidents at work. It could be due to negligence and oversight. In some cases, it might even be caused by a third party.

You need to tell your Las Vegas workers’ compensation lawyer all the details and circumstances that led to your injuries. That way, your lawyer can determine if your employer is responsible for additional compensation due to pain and suffering (on top of medical reimbursements). If the workplace injury is caused by a third party, your lawyer can also guide you toward the right strategy. Contact Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today for a free consultation.

What to Do If a Third Party Caused My Workplace Injuries?

Workplace injuries are not always caused by the negligence of an employer; visitors can cause accidents, too. An example is when a delivery man runs you over while you’re working on the field.

In this case, you can still file for workers’ compensation. Aside from that, you can also file for a third-party liability claim. If proven negligent, the third party may be liable for punitive damages, or pain and suffering.

Consult our Las Vegas workers’ compensation lawyer to learn how to proceed under these circumstances.

What Is Not Covered By Workers’ Compensation?

Whether the employer was negligent or not, you can claim workers’ compensation. As long as you can prove that the injury occurred at work, you’ll be entitled to compensation.

However, your chances of getting compensated will be affected if the following factors are present:

  • Use of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident
  • Intentional injuries and fraudulent claims
  • Untimely filing of forms
