The Workers Compensation Law Firm Serving Henderson
Workers compensation law in Nevada provides medical care and financial assistance to anyone who has suffered an injury or illness related to their work. It also provides for the dependents of injured workers who have died as a result of injuries related to work.
It may look simple to obtain workers compensation benefits at first, but the reality is very different. It can be frustrating to file a claim. You may find that an employer and their insurance company claim that your injury is not related to work, that you are not really hurt, or even that it’s your fault you were injured.
Under workers comp law in Nevada, injured workers can receive various benefits. These include benefits for people who become impaired or disabled as a result of their injuries. Disability benefits include the following:
When you are injured and it results in pain, lost wages, or even disability, no compensation will fully make up for your suffering. But it is only fair to seek justice when the accident was someone else’s fault.
And that’s exactly what we will help you with at Ruiz Law Firm. If you have been hurt at work, or a loved one has been injured, we can assist you. We will help you seek a payout that is fair as well as appealing denials so you can get on with your life again.

Any business in Nevada with employees must have workers compensation insurance. This should have coverage for all the employees, both full-time and part-time. However, domestic workers and independent contractors might not have it.
Various factors are used to determine your status. This could include how you are paid, the length of time you have been in employment, and more. A skilled attorney can help you to find out whether you will qualify for workers compensation.
Our primary aim at Ruiz Law Firm is to help you get a fair verdict or settlement. This means one that covers your needs. This is usually possible outside a courtroom, but we cannot guarantee this.
Your employer or their insurance company will require that you get an independent medical examination from a doctor after you have been injured at work. However, you should make sure you visit your own doctor to ensure it is truly independent.
After being injured in an accident, Nevada workers have one year in which they can file a claim. It’s best to start the process as soon as possible because claims for workers compensation can take a lot longer than you might imagine.
It is incredibly difficult in the early stages of a claim process to provide you with an accurate estimate for the amount your case might be worth. However, as the case progresses, your attorney can usually give you a better idea of what you can expect.
Your pain might not be that bad, in which case your employer might suggest that you don’t file a claim. However, make sure you consult with your doctor first because you may only develop symptoms at a later date.
