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 workers' compensation benefits. NAIW does not charge a fee for legal representation.
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.
