What Happens After You’ve Won a Work Comp Claim?
Getting the workers comp benefits you deserve will help you recover from your injury and take care of your family during the difficult time after a workplace accident. When you’re first injured, getting your workers compensation claim approved will likely be a top priority.
But what happens after you’ve won a work comp claim? Knowing the benefits you deserve can help you get started, and it can show you exactly how a lawyer from Pothitakis Law Firm, PC can help. If you’re not sure what a future with a successful work comp claim holds, speak to a lawyer for guidance on your case.
You’ll Reach a Settlement
Settling with the insurance company will be a major step for your workers comp claim. You’ve responded to the disagreements about your impairment, and you’ve received either a settlement agreement or a compromise settlement.
An agreement to settle lets you keep your rights to future benefits—you’ll simply file the agreement with the workers compensation commissioner. Otherwise, you may have to compromise on your settlement with the insurance company, which will end your chance to change your benefits. Your lawyer will help you fight and make sure you’ve gotten a settlement that’s appropriate for your case.
Your Benefits Will Help Your Recovery
After a major occupational accident or illness, you need help getting back on your feet. Iowa workers comp benefits should give you coverage for your bills and replace part of your lost income. That makes getting through this difficult time easier.
While your benefits will vary, depending on your situation, below are some of the common benefits your lawyer may help you fight for:
- Medical expenses
- Permanent or temporary partial disability
- Permanent or temporary total disability
These benefits will be assigned an amount and duration based on the details of your case. For example, a broken leg may mean temporary total disability, while a paralyzing spinal injury could be a permanent problem. Speak with your lawyer about what you can expect from your Iowa workman’s comp claim.
