Because Nevada has “exclusive remedy,” the injured workers’ benefits are set forth in the statutes. Employers who provide coverage for their employees at the time of injury are protected from any additional damages claimed by their employees as a result of an injury on the job. This protection is established when the injured employee opts to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
