State law dictates that all companies must have workers compensation insurance. This insurance is provides valuable assistance to injured employees. Accordingly, the worker and their family are able to sustain their standard of living even while the breadwinner is unable to bring home a paycheck.
Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to get fair compensation from these insurance companies. It’s in their best interests to pay out as little as possible. The sad reality is that the small amount the insurer is willing to pay is rarely enough to cover the cost of medical expenses, let alone the day-to-day bills that are typical for any family.
When this difficult situation arises, it is only sensible to contact the Potter Law Offices. Our practitioners have considerable experience when it comes to dealing with workplace injuries in Las Vegas. In the past, we’ve helped clients who have received serious neck, back and brain injuries while on the job. We’ve seen clients with severe fractures, debilitating burns and significant hearing loss. Even clients who have endured the amputation of a limb have benefitted from our legal advice over the years.
At the Potter Law Offices, we have further assisted clients to make third-party claims in connection with on-the-job injuries. For instance, this means that when the manufacturer of a piece of equipment produces a flawed product and this flaw contributed to the accident, then they may be held legally and financially responsible for their negligence. Other third parties could include a janitorial service or a contractor that is hired to do repair work on the facility or the equipment that is used there.
If you are injured on the job and your employer carries workers’ compensation insurance, then you are certainly eligible to make a claim. However, the only way you can be certain that the insurance company deals with you fairly is by working with an experienced workplace injury attorney in Las Vegas. Moreover, the only way to determine whether or not a third-party claim may be made is by asking for legal advice. Contact the Potter Law Offices today to learn more.
