Common Questions & Concerns

  1. Am I eligible? Let’s say you have been hurt at work. If you are an official employee, and the company that you work for has workers compensation insurance, there is a good chance that you could be entitled to workmans comp benefits.
  2. How do I file? After informing your supervisor of the injury, they should have you fill out the proper paperwork. After that (and being checked out), the human resources department should get working on your claim. If they don’t do as the law requires, call your attorney.
  3. How long do I have? In Las Vegas, you have no longer than 90 days to file for compensation.
  4. My benefits were denied. Now what? Call your lawyer. They’ll ask for details, and guide you from there.
  5. Can I continue to work? Sometimes a doctor can set “work restrictions”, meaning you might be able to work, but under certain limitations, and only if the employer has work available that fits into those guidelines.
  6. Who determines if I’m well enough to work or not? The doctor that treats you has a big influence, but your managers and claims administator might also assist in making this decision.
  7. The doctor says I shouldn’t work, but my manager is insisting. What should I do? You can only do work that your doctor approves of. Your lawyer can review the situation you are in and explain what should be done.
