After an On the Job Injury, You Need a Lawyer to Protect Your Rights
Work injuries can take many forms, from a repetitive stress injury in a traditional office, to a serious fall injury at a manufacturing plant, to a work-related illness or health condition. But all of these on-the-job injuries have a few things in common: they prevent Iowa workers from continuing to do their job; they cause Iowa workers physical harm and emotional trauma, and they often lead to serious financial issues as Iowa workers struggle to support themselves and their families.
Fortunately, Iowa workers' compensation laws are in place to make certain that injured Iowa workers receive medical care, benefits, and fair treatment from their Iowa employers after a work-related accident. The majority of employers in Iowa are required to carry Iowa workers' compensation insurance and are obligated to follow state mandates regarding worker accidents and injuries.
Reasons Why Your Workers' Compensation Claim May Not Go Smoothly:
- Your employer and the insurance carrier have denied your valid workers' compensation claim.
- Your employer and the insurance carrier have delayed your benefits for an unreasonable amount of time.
- You believe your settlement is unreasonably small or unfair.
- Your employer has discouraged you from filing a claim for compensation or threatened you regarding a workers' comp claim.
- Your employer has retaliated against you after you filed a workers' comp claim.
- Your employer has not provided you with appropriate medical care following an on-the-job accident.
