Workplace Injuries & Illnesses

Any workplace can be the site of a workplace accident. After all, as is often said, accidents happen. No amount of planning and safety measures can guarantee that no workplace accidents will ever happen. Workers’ compensation acknowledges the uncertain risks of workplace accidents by taking care of covered workers and employees, no matter their industries or injuries.

At Alvandi Law Group, our Las Vegas workers’ comp lawyers have an extensive and varied history of practice focusing on serious work accidents. We can handle your case, whether you were severely injured or injured enough to interrupt your ability to work.

Serious workplace injuries that are often involved in workers’ comp cases are:

  • Head injuries and TBIs
  • Back and spine injuries
  • Knee and joint injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Toxic exposure
  • Occupational illnesses
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Electrical exposure injuries and burns

Can You File an Injury Claim for a Work Injury?

Part of a workers’ compensation insurance policy states that an injured worker can file for benefits only if they don’t file a civil injury claim against the employer. On the other hand, the worker can get benefits even if they are liable for the injury. For example, you could admit that you made a mistake while climbing scaffolding at work, fell, and were hurt, and you would still be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. However, there are circumstances in which an injured worker can file a civil injury claim while still getting workers’ compensation.

You might be able to use both remedies for compensation if:

  • Your work injury was caused by a third party like a customer, subcontractor, or vendor.
  • Your work injury is not covered by workers’ comp and someone else’s negligence caused it.

Not sure if you should file for workers’ compensation, a civil injury claim, or both? Don’t worry. Our Las Vegas workers’ compensation attorneys are here to review your case and explain your options to you.

Workers’ Compensation Ineligibility

Although most workers in Nevada are covered by some form of workers’ compensation, not all are. Or some workers who are covered might become ineligible for benefits for different reasons.

You might not be eligible for workers’ compensation if:

  • You are considered an independent contractor, not an employee.
  • You are employed in one of the few industries that don’t need to provide workers’ compensation to all workers.
  • You were injured at work due to intentionally unsafe behaviors or illegal activities.
  • You were not injured at work or in a way related to your work expectations.

It is not uncommon for workers to be categorized as independent contractors when they should be considered employees, though. If you were told you can’t file for workers’ comp because you’re an independent contractor, not an employee, don’t accept it without questioning. Talk to our attorneys first, so we can check to see if your employment status is inaccurate.

LAS VEGAS workers' compensation CLAIM FAQ'S

  • When do you have to tell your employer about a work injury?
    Nevada workers’ compensation law expects you to inform your employer within 7 days of your work injury or accident. If you don’t, then the legitimacy of your workers’ compensation claim could be questioned. Ideally, you’ll be able to tell your employer as soon as possible, though. Don’t delay if you can help it.
  • Can independent contractors get workers’ compensation?
    Independent contractors are usually not eligible to receive workers’ compensation in Las Vegas. Exceptions do exist, though, so don’t assume you don’t have any coverage. If you get hurt while working, it is always worth at least speaking with a workers’ compensation attorney, regardless of your employment status.
  • What happens if you lose a loved one in a workplace accident?
    Workers’ compensation insurance can include death benefits if someone loses their life to a workplace injury, illness, or accident. The death benefits will be paid to family members and usually include the cost of final medical treatments and funeral rites. Death benefits can also include lost income in some cases.
  • What is a workers’ compensation case settlement?
    A successful workers’ compensation case will usually end in one of two ways: the workers’ comp benefits owed to the claimant are provided as they should have been; or the claimant is provided a financial settlement that will cover their losses and damages, similar to how the benefits should have. Many of the winning workers’ compensation claims we have handled involved both a settlement and benefits to cover future care and needs.
  • What are the most common workplace injuries?
    The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) keeps track of different workplace injuries. According to its findings, the four most common fatal injuries involve falls from heights, struck by falling object accidents, electrocutions, and caught-in/between accidents. Common nonfatal work injuries include lifting-related injuries, repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome, and mental duress or PTSD.
