The answer is yes, as there is an exception to the general rule exempting you from workers compensation coverage when you are not yet clocked in. It is called the going-and-coming rule, when you are going to and coming home from work under Nevada law you are still entitled to work comp benefits. You should not hesitate to file a workers compensation claim for your accident.
