Range of Benefits
Have you been injured at work in Iowa before? Workers often don't know the full range of benefits required under Iowa law. There is more than one type of benefit. Of course, there are medical benefits, but there are also healing period benefits that offer payments while a person is recuperating. Benefits can be temporary, lasting weeks or months. Benefits can be semi-permanent, lasting years. Benefits can even last a lifetime when the injury is so bad that the worker can't ever work again. A worker may get partial benefits if the injury or illness will prevent them from working at their previous income level. Furthermore, these benefits are sometimes granted as a lump sum. Niko Pothitakis can help you claim all of the benefits to which you are entitled.
