Employees injured at work in Iowa should contact the Pothitakis Law Firm in Burlington, Iowa for assistance from an experienced attorney who understands workers’ compensation and social security disability regulations. Long-term or permanent injuries that prevent individuals from working can cause serious financial problems due to hospital bills and medication expenses. Many individuals are unable to work for several years or a lifetime due to a physical disability caused by a work injury. This means they need money to pay living expenses such as rent or mortgage. Applying for workers' compensation and social security disability is often difficult because of the complex paperwork required by government agencies.
Hire a Knowledgeable Attorney
Having a knowledgeable attorney to communicate with officials is frequently necessary in order to get approval for programs that assist with an injured worker’s medical bills and living expenses. It is also common for an employer to threaten an employee concerning applying for the workers’ compensation program. Every employee has a small portion of their paycheck deducted to pay for coverage under the policies of the workers’ compensation and social security disability program. The United States government created these programs to assist employees injured at work in Iowa and other states. Employers are also required to pay into the workers’ compensation and social security disability program in every state in order to prevent receiving fines from government officials.
Receive Excellent Legal Advice
By accepting payments from the workers’ compensation program, an employee is often unable to file a complaint against an employer for negligence. Signing away the right to sue an employer can have negative consequences when new information indicates negligence occurred. Hiring a competent legal team at the Pothitakis Law Firm is the best way to ensure that an employee injured at work in Iowa is receiving fair treatment. An investigation of injury incidents often reveals new information such as an employer failing to make repairs to faulty machinery that led to a work accident.
