Case Synopsis

NRS 616C.390 allows for workers’ compensation claims to be reopened if there is a change of circumstance related to the injury that the claimant can demonstrate by a preponderance of the evidence. This Opinion clarifies that, if there were multiple body parts implicated in the injury, then a claim needs to be reopened only for the body parts that the claimant has demonstrated a change in circumstances.
