Understanding Workers' Compensation

Understanding Workers' Compensation

The way workers’ compensation works in Nevada is that there is not just one big settlement or one big verdict that comes in like in third party and personal injury claims. With workers’ compensation claims, the insurance company sends out determination letters throughout the course of a claim that have to be appealed if we disagree with them. And that means there can be a number of hearings and appeals that occur throughout the course of a claim.

A failure to appeal one determination at the start of a claim can impact a lot of other determinations that occur later on down the line. This is why it is very important an injured worker have a competent workers’ compensation lawyer to help them out.

If, for example, a worker were to receive a claim acceptance letter and did not accept a claim or accepted only a portion of the claim and denied another body part, it would be difficult for that worker to get treatment on a body part that was not accepted.
