What kind of Las Vegas workers’ compensation benefits am I entitled to?

Getting the benefits you deserve from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance is not a simple matter. As you can imagine, it involves plenty of red tape that could easily confuse you, and eventually result in the unfair denial of your claim—that is, unless you have an experienced Las Vegas workers’ compensation attorney on your side. You could be entitled to the following benefits:

    • Medical care
    • Medical Expenses (includes travel)
    • Vocational Rehabilitation
    • Rehabilitation Costs

Determining Compensation

The compensation you receive for missed work is based on the extent of your injuries paired with your ability to return to work. If in fact you qualify for benefits, you may qualify for compensation under the following areas:

  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD): If you are unable to work for five (5) consecutive days, or a total of five (5) days in a twenty (20) day work week.
  • Temporary Partial Disability (TPD): If your wage is less than the TTD amount you are receiving; TPD is then used to eliminate the deficit.
  • Permanent Partial Disability (PPD): A more severe coverage area, this is implemented when you’ve suffered a permanent loss of functionality  in a part of your body that, in turn, sabotages your ability to complete your work.
  • Permanent Total Disability (PTD): The most severe of the four, this applies if you are permanently disabled and unable to return to work.

How Long Until I Receive My Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

You can get medical treatment for your injury or illness immediately. If a medical provider is informed that you have a pending workers’ compensation claim, they cannot request payment from you directly. To receive financial benefits, you must wait for your claim to be approved by the insurance company. You will typically be notified 30-days post filing.  If you are denied benefits, you will be notified of your rights to appeal the claim with a deadline to do so.

Appealing A Work Comp Claim

If you are denied your benefits, an experienced personal injury attorney, such as the attorneys at Craig P. Kenny and Associates, can help you file an appeal. We understand the process and what the law requires, and we will happily represent you, our client, to ensure you receive the benefits you are entitled to.

CAN I FILE A WORKERS’ COMPENSATION CLAIM MYSELF?

Yes; however, if you opt to self-represent, insurance companies will fight tooth and nail to deny these benefits. For example, they may argue that you are not actually disabled by your injury or illness, that there is no validity to your claim, or that your condition is not work-related, etc… We understand how to fight back against these kind of accusations. As your Las Vegas workers’ compensation attorney, we will fight for your rights and create the strongest case possible to ensure you receive full and fair compensation.
