FAQs About Worker’s Comp and Injuries on the Job
Your Las Vegas workplace injury attorney fields several common questions from clients about getting hurt on the job. Here are the basics you need to know after you’ve been injured:
- Is a temporary or part-time employee eligible for worker’s comp? Yes. More employers are relying on workers who are not full-time. Part-timers or temps who may be inexperienced or unfamiliar with a job site are more likely to be involved in accidents and are entitled to benefits if they are hurt.
- What should I do if I didn’t notify my employer of my accident but realized days later that I am hurt? Any type of incident that could result in injuries should be reported immediately. Even if some time has passed, it may not be too late to inform your employer and seek medical attention.
- Why can’t I just fill out the worker’s comp paperwork myself? Completing a claim can take a lot of time and be confusing. Hiring a Las Vegas workers’ comp attorney to assist with the paperwork makes sense, particularly if you are disabled or if there is any chance your employer will contest the claim.
- What if the accident was partly my fault? If you’re at work and get hurt fault doesn’t matter. From a legal perspective, it’s a mistake to assume you caused an incident in which you and possibly others were hurt. Discuss the case candidly with your attorney – you may still be eligible for compensation.
