Case Synopsis

The Court determined that (1) an employee’s injuries that originate before entering the workplace but are aggravated due to an employer’s failure to provide timely medical assistance arise out of and in the course of employment; and (2) that employees’ recovery against their employers for such injuries are confined to the exclusive remedies for workers’ compensation under the Nevada Industrial Insurance Act (NIIA).
