    Default Nevada Does Not Offer Legal Help to Injured Workers

    I just want 2 make it clear 2 every injuried worker there is no "free" legal advise provided in the state of Nv. 2 IW's.

    If u r @ the appeal level of ur case & do not have an attorney the Governor's office has someone 2 help u. Good Luck w/that !!
    U need a "competent attorney who practices WC law way before that."

    That corrects 1 mispost I have read here the other is; Nv. attorneys r not limited 2 a 25% commission. My attorney just upped his rates from 33 & one third to 40 %.
    So if ur in ur 1st year & u r seriously injuried or multiple body parts r injuried....
    Get A Good Lawyer !!!

    There is an organization called the NAIW which stands for Nevada Attorney Injured Workers and they do give legal representation for Appeals Court cases and up and their services are FREE provided by the STATE of Nevada. How do I know this? I have one that has been helping me since May 2017. Look them up on the Work Comp Nevada website.

    Ah, not exactly. That appears to be a free lawyer for you at just one administrative level of appeal. To go to the appellate division ("Appeals Court"), you probably need to retain a private lawyer.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).
