About Workers’ Compensation Attorney Jay Short
Attorney Jay Short comes from a farming family in the midwest. After serving in the United States Marine Corps as an enlisted man, he graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1987 and the University of Iowa College of Law in 1990. He moved to Nevada in 1990 to clerk for the Chief Justice of the Nevada Supreme Court in Carson City.

In his spare time, Jay and his wife Peggy enjoy working on their farm in Apple Hill, California.

As a sole practitioner, doing only workers comp cases, he is closely involved in all stages of his clients’ cases from claim acceptance through final disability settlement and retraining services.
About The Nevada Workers’ Compensation Center
At the Nevada Workers’ Compensation Center, work comp is all we do. We have decades of experience representing people who were injured at work. Our mission is to help injured workers receive the compensation they deserve for their work-related injury. Workers’ Compensation benefits can pay for medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, and wages lost from missing time from work as a result of the injury.
If you are hurt on the job, having an experienced workers’ compensation attorney can be critical to receiving the medical care and financial benefits you and your family are entitled to. Although many firms claim to handle all types of injury cases, few of them have the knowledge and expertise necessary to pursue workers compensation claims to the full extent of the law. At the Workers’ Compensation Center, headed by attorney Jay Short, we specialize in helping injured workers through the maze of Nevada work comp law.
Attorney Jay Short and his staff at the Workers’ Compensation Center have assisted hundreds of injured workers with claims throughout the State of Nevada. For more information, or to arrange your free initial consultation, please call the Workers’ Compensation Center Reno at (775) 786-2006. We look forward to helping you.
