The Nevada Attorney for Injured Workers (NAIW) is a state agency that represents people who have been hurt in a work accident or have suffered the onset of an occupational disease. We help our clients get their workers' compensation benefits.
Injured workers have the right to appeal determinations from their workers' compensation insurers in the State of Nevada Department of Administration Hearings Division.
NAIW attorneys represent injured workers at the Appeals Officer level in the Hearings Division and do not charge a fee for this service. To view a chart explaining this administrative process click the following link...

In most situations NAIW becomes involved with a case only after it has gone before a Hearing Officer and the case has been appealed to the Appeals Officer level. If appropriate, NAIW attorneys can represent a claim to the District Court and Supreme Court appeal levels.
If you have been recently injured on the job, or you are considering reopening a Workers' Compensation claim, we have an informational Advice Line:
