Bettendorf Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Helping Injured Workers Throughout Bettendorf
We love Bettendorf. It may be one of the smaller Quad Cities, but it’s also among the most charming places in all of Iowa. It’s no surprise that CNNMoney named it one of the 100 best towns in America. That’s quite an honor — one that Bettendorf has earned in spades. We’re proud to have it here in Eastern Iowa.
For many than twenty years, the talented legal team at Pothitakis Law Firm P.C. has worked hand in hand with the people of Bettendorf and the Quad Cities. Just 80 miles to the north of our office in Burlington, the friendly town of Bettendorf is one of our favorite spots along the Mississippi River.

It’s hard to find a Bettendorfworkers’ compensation lawyer you can count on to pursue your claim with aggressive determination and experienced strategy. Our firm offers both. We know that workplace injuries happen in an instant, and they’re rarely the fault of those who sustain them.
Iowa law imposes a strict duty of responsibility on businesses. Your employer has a responsibility to keep you safe, and that’s a responsibility that our legal professionals take very seriously.
Unfortunately, employers too often let safety slip through the cracks, and innocent laborers end up injured as a result. Then, in the victim’s time of need, too many employers and insurers are willing to simply shrug their shoulders and turn away. The Bettendorf Workers’ Compensation system may not offer adequate relief either.
That isn’t fair. You deserve justice, and it’s our job to pursue it on your behalf. That’s a commitment we carry into all of our work in Scott County and beyond.

$1 Million Workers Slip and Fall
After hearing, the Deputy Workers’ Compensation Commissioner entered an award fully in favor of the Claimant finding him permanently and totally disabled. The Decision resulted in an award with the present value of in excess of $1 million. In addition, the Defendants were ordered to pay the Claimant’s medical expenses for the remainder of his life.
$450,000 Partial Commutation
In 2013, our client was a truck driver who was fatally injured in a tragic auto accident. He was married at the time and as a result his wife was entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits. Those benefits would end upon her death or shortly after she were to remarry. The surviving spouse was finding it difficult to live on the weekly Workers’ Compensation benefits and for other reasons wanted to have the money paid in a lump sum.
