There are a number of ways that Iowa has jurisdiction over an work injury. If the injury happens in Iowa, you can bring an a claim for benefits in the Iowa Workers compensation system. If the employer has a place of business in Iowa and the employee regularly works at or from that place of business and the employee lives in Iowa also supports Iowa Workers Compensation Law covering the claim. If the employee is working under a contract of hire made in Iowa and regularly works in the state also satisfies Iowa jurisdiction. There are other ways to be covered by Iowa Workers Compensation law even if injured outside of the state. For that and other reasons, it is important to talk to an Iowa Workers Compensation Lawyer if you have sustained an injury and either you or your employer has some connection with Iowa.
