Nevada Workers Comp Laws
Workers comp laws in the United States are state-regulated, meaning every state has their own set of codes and mandated policies. In Nevada, workers comp laws cover most workers in nearly every industry, with the exception of actors, musicians, real estate brokers and some farm workers. The workers comp laws in Nevada are considered "no fault," which means that you are entitled to receive benefits from your employer if you are hurt at work.
Benefits include lost wages, medical bill reimbursement/coverage, and/or death benefits for your survivors. Sometimes, these benefits also include adjustments in your job description to allow for your injuries or help in finding new employment. Typically, insurance companies will attempt to pay you as little as possible for your workers comp claim, hoping that you don't know enough about the system to expect any more.
