Las Vegas Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

People who are injured at work must deal with the physical limitations of an injury. Injuries can be so severe, they can prevent the victim from performing their duties at the same level, or at all – temporarily or permanently. If you have been injured at work and suffered a temporary or permanently disabling injury, you may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits. At Harris & Harris, we have specialized workers’ compensation attorneys in Las Vegas to help you now!

Harris & Harris Injury Lawyers serve clients in Nevada, California, Arizona, and Utah. If you would like to discuss a work injury claim with a workers’ compensation lawyer at our law firm, please contact our office.

What Benefits Can I Receive Through a Worker’s Compensation Claim?

  • Income Benefits – Income benefits may be disbursed for temporary partial disability (TPD), temporary total disability (TTD), permanent total disability (PTD), or permanent partial disability (PPD) to compensate for lost wages incurred as a result of a workplace injury.
  • Medical Expenses – Worker’s compensation covers medical benefits incurred because of the work-related injury – including hospital expenses, physical therapy, vocational rehabilitation, transportation to medical appointments, orthotics (or medical devices) and other medical treatments.
  • Death Benefits – When a loved one passes away in a work-related accident, workers’ compensation benefits provide compensation to surviving beneficiaries for lost wages, medical bills incurred before death and funeral expenses.

Many clients come to us with the most serious of injuries, from spinal cord injuries to losing a limb, we have seen it all. When the extent of injuries is catastrophic in nature, workers’ compensation is often inadequate to fully compensate you. Our Las Vegas workers’ compensation attorneys will help to recover the full value of your case by reviewing all angles of the workplace accident and determining all avenues of recovery. We will also fight for your workers’ compensation claim if you were wrongfully denied benefits.

In certain instances, a third-party liability claim, such as a product liability claim against a defective product manufacturer, may provide the necessary compensation you need.

Workers’ Compensation May Not Be Enough

While workers’ compensation insurance is an important safety net for injured workers, workers’ comp benefits do not fully reimburse a worker for all lost wages or pain and suffering. If your injuries were caused by a negligent party that was NOT your employer or another employee of your company, you may be able to bring a personal injury suit against that party under Nevada law.

Examples of cases where a personal injury claim could apply:

  • Premises liability claims against a property owner, general contractor or property manager, if the job site where an employee works or visits in the course of work is unsafe
  • Product liability claims against the manufacturer and/or distributor of a defective product such as construction equipment that caused a construction accident, power tools, scaffolding, ladders, or appliances
  • Car or truck accident claims, if you or the other party was driving for work
  • Negligent Security claims, if you were physically or sexually assaulted while working in a hotel or casino or as a tour guide.
