These are just some of the reasons that getting legal representation is often necessary. Niko Pothitakis is known as one of the best attorneys for workers comp in Iowa.

Often workers think that they are only entitled to one type of benefit, but there are actually many levels of compensation that are available. Healing benefits are provided for those who need to stay at home and recuperate. Temporary total benefits start as well, providing an income until the incapacitated person can return to work. Temporary partial benefits kick in if the person can return to work but cannot work at their prior income level. Permanent partial disability extends this idea further, recognizing that a worker may never regain use of a member (leg, arm, etc) and may always work at a lower-paying job. Permanent total disability recognizes that a person cannot work for a very long time, perhaps ever, due to the injuries sustained at work. As you can see, there are many layers, and insurance companies can use these layers to confuse worthy, injured workers. Let the Pothitakis Law Firm help you with your long-term workers' comp claim.
