Our Las Vegas job accident attorneys help injured workers recover the maximum settlement to cover all of their expenses, including:
- medical bills in Nevada,
- lost wages in Nevada,
- pain and suffering in Nevada, and/or
- disability payments and vocational training (in Nevada workers' comp cases)
And if the worker passed away from the accident, we will help the family pursue workers' comp death benefits or Nevada wrongful death damages to recover funeral expenses and loss of financial support.
Employers would be nothing without their employees and Nevada independent contractors doing the hard work. We make sure these employers' insurance companies demonstrate their workers' worth with their wallet.
How can a Nevada work injury lawyer help?
When an injured employee or independent contractor hires an accident attorney to handle their claims, the attorney will manage every aspect of the case. In part, this includes:
- conducting an investigation of the accident
- filling out and filing the necessary paperwork
- compiling all the required evidence and documentation
- making sure the worker is getting proper medical care
- negotiating with insurance companies
- if necessary, hiring experts
It is never a fair fight between underpaid workers and their overpaid bosses. Having a lawyer also helps "even the playing field." Personal injury attorneys aggressively protect their clients' interest while holding the bosses' insurance companies to task and making sure they dole out every cent they owe.
If you are injured in an accident at work, you may be feeling very alone. But you are not. Just in 2017, private employers in Nevada reported 35,700 nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses and 32 fatal ones (according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics).
If you have been injured in your workplace, our Nevada workplace accident attorneys are devoted to helping you weather this transition by managing all your legal affairs and fighting for the largest settlement possible. Following the trauma of an accident or diagnosis, all you need to concern yourself with is healing. Leave the legal worries to us.
Can I file a work injury claim in Nevada without an attorney?
Yes, but it is risky. Whether you are filing for workers' comp or bringing a civil lawsuit, the amount of paperwork involved can be overwhelming. And without legal training and experience, the odds of making serious mistakes that could undermine your claims are very high.
In addition, insurance companies tend to take cases more seriously when claimants are represented by a personal injury attorney looking out for their best interests. When claimants have no attorney, the insurance company may try to lowball them into taking far less than what they are entitled to under the law.
Finally, workers recovering from an accident or occupational disease do not have the time or energy required to aggressively pursue legal claims. If you have been injured in an accident that jeopardizes your livelihood, you should center all of your attention on healing and allow experienced professionals to fight for you.
Why should I hire a Las Vegas work injury attorney?
Experienced personal injury attorneys have seen it all, including every sneaky way that insurance companies try to get out of paying up. By hiring a skilled accident attorney, injured workers can rest assured that they have a strong advocate fighting for their interests while also shielding them from the messiness and ugliness of litigation.
Lawyering up is also risk-free. No reputable Nevada job injury attorneys would charge any money unless they win the case. That gives attorneys all the more incentive to leave no stone unturned when duking it out with the insurance companies.
Whether we are filing a workers' comp claim or a civil lawsuit against a third-party, our Nevada workplace injury attorneys put the full force of our experience, our reputation, and the law behind everything we do. Going up against your boss's insurance company may seem like an impossible feat. But we make it clear early on that we are impossible to intimidate and stop at nothing to recover every penny you are owed.
