Were you injured on the job? If so, you most likely are seeking compensation to help you deal with your medical bills and missed time from work. Please continue reading and reach out to AllianceMeds to learn more about workers’ comp benefits in Nevada and how they can help you get back on your feet again. Here are some of the questions you may have:
Are all employers required to carry workers’ comp insurance in Nevada?
Fortunately for injured workers, any employer with one or more employees is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This means that in almost all cases, when an employee is injured on the job, they are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
Does workers’ comp cover the entire cost of an injury in Nevada?
When someone is hurt on the job and files a workers’ compensation claim, they should receive financial compensation to cover the cost of their medical bills and lost wages. Additionally, if someone is permanently injured from a work-related accident, workers’ compensation should cover the cost of their permanent disability as well.
What do I need to do to file a workers’ compensation claim in Nevada?
The first thing you should do after sustaining an injury on the job is to notify your employer that you’ve been hurt. Though you technically have seven days from the date of your injury to notify your employer of your injury, you should do so either the day of or the next day. Once you’ve informed your employer of your injury, you should then go to a hospital or a doctor and have your injury treated at once. When you file your claim, you will complete a Form C-1 and a Form C-4. There is nothing more important than your health, and if you’ve been hurt, you should take swift action to receive medical treatment and file your claim.
