If you have been injured while working and your injury prevents you from returning to work, you may be eligible for Nevada workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to receive fair compensation through this process. Anyone interested in pursuing support for their medical bills and the wages they have lost while healing would be well advised to contact an experienced Nevada workers’ compensation attorney.

Determining eligibility for workers’ compensation insurance can be a complicated process. Workers who want to seek support for their injuries will have to prove that their injury occurred during work-related activities and that the injury prevents them from being able to work. The extent of the injuries and whether or not the injuries are permanent or temporary will affect how much compensation may be available.

In order to receive workers’ compensation benefits, the worker must be either temporarily or permanently unable to work. Injured employees will have to work with insurance company approved medical professionals to prove the extent of their injuries and their inability to perform the tasks required of them at work.

Workers’ compensation benefits will cover a temporary total disability (when the victim is unable to work but will recover), permanent total disability (victim will never be able to work again), or permanent partial disability (worker can return to work but will never fully recover).
