Nevada Workers Compensation

Are you suffering from a workplace injury? It’s time to get proper medical attention and the financial compensation that you deserve.

When you are injured on the job it can be a terrible experience.  Do you have to use the insurance company’s doctor?  How do you know you are actually getting the best medical care?  Maybe you are working light duty but can barely make it at work with your injuries.  Do you have any options?  Perhaps you question if you will still have a job after you get better.  Will the insurance company offer you a fair settlement?


You have rights!  You deserve to know your rights!  You deserve to have your rights defended!  Workers compensation is the flagship area of practice at Santos Law, PLLC.  Attorney

Cory A. Santos, Sr. has been equalizing the playing field for injured workers in Nevada since 2002.  Whether your case is in northern Nevada or southern Nevada, Attorney Santos is ready to help you and your family.  He has litigated work injury cases from the hearing level up to the Nevada Supreme Court.  His legal career is highlighted by the significant precedent setting win before the Nevada Supreme Court in Flamingo Hilton v. Gilbert, 122 Nev. 1279 (2006).  For a more detailed background of his experience, click here.


Attorney Santos has been at the forefront of work injury policy as an advocate for injured workers–especially those on the front line such as police and firefighters–by testifying on behalf of injured workers before the Nevada Legislature.  He also has contributed to Nevada work injury policy as an author who writes about Nevada workers compensation law in the Nevada Justice Association’s magazine, the Advocate.


Attorney Santos has handled all types of industrial injury cases falling under NRS 616C ranging from serious spinal, shoulder, knee, wrist/hand injuries, to brain injuries and stress cases.  He has also represented injured workers with serious diseases covered under NRS 617, such as exposure to mold, asbestos, carpal tunnel syndrome/cubital syndrome, and repetitive injury conditions. 


Attorney Santos is a multiple year winner of the AVVO Client Choice award.  Attorney Santos wants you to know that you matter to him.  As his client, you can feel confident knowing that Attorney Santos personally handles all litigation before the court, as opposed to handing off your case to an associate attorney.  Attorney Santos feels strongly that communication with his clients is of utmost importance.  In addition to being available for his clients outside of normal business hours, he also provides his clients with his email, so they can reach him directly for urgent matters.


You have rights under the law.  Let Attorney Santos and his years of experience in workers compensation fight for you and your family.  Call for a free personal case evaluation.  Let Attorney Santos equalize the playing field and get the justice you deserve.
