Which employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in Nevada?
All private employers who have one or more employees are legally obligated to carry workers’ compensation insurance in Nevada. If a Nevada employee was injured on the job, there is a very high chance that they will qualify for workers’ compensation benefits.
What do workers’ compensation benefits cover?
Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to provide injured employees with financial benefits. These benefits are provided to assist in covering the cost of the victim’s medical bills, lost wages from being unable to return to work for a certain period of time. These benefits are also provided to cover the cost of any permanent disability sustained as a result of their work-related injury.
How do I file a workers’ compensation claim in Nevada?
One of the first steps that you should take after being injured on the job is to immediately notify your employer of the incident. Next, you should seek immediate medical treatment. The injured employee is legally obligated to submit notice to their employer within seven days of their accident. In other circumstances, such as if you contracted an occupational disease, you must file your disease within seven days of discovering the disease. To do so, you will fill out a Form C-1 to report your injury and then Form C-4 within 90 days of discovering your injury or work-related illness. If these deadlines are met, you should recover your rightful workers’ compensation benefits.
