Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Serving Cedar Rapids in Iowa
Cedar Rapids is the second-largest city in Iowa and one of The Hawkeye State’s brightest-shining stars. It’s one of those places that everyone in the whole country has heard of — a household name and a popular destination for Americans from coast to coast. That makes it an important source of commerce for Iowa and a cultural nexus to be proud of.

Of course, the booming business scene isn’t the only thing that draws us toward Cedar Rapids. There’s so much to do there, too! Where else can you find all four seasons, plus a bonus one to boot? They call it The City of Five Seasons for a reason. That’s the official town motto, and town leaders explicate it beautifully, as follows:
“Every year, the Cedar Rapids community experiences the wonders of changing seasons in our Midwestern landscape. Some may say that taking the time to appreciate everyday beauty extends life, almost like an extra season is added to every year. This fifth season affords us time to enjoy all other seasons, and to enjoy life.”
Indeed, Cedar Rapids is a place to stop and smell the roses. Who wouldn’t love a city whose very existence is dedicated to extra enjoyment of life?

Our Case Results
$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.
Workers’ Comp Appeal Results in Settlement
Pothitakis Law Firm pursued this claim for in excess of three and a half years. Mr. Pothitakis conferenced with the claimant’s doctors and obtained reports over those years to put the claimant in the best position to obtain a favorable result at hearing. When the initial decision was inappropriate, Pothitakis Law Firm filed an appeal and was successful on that appeal.
