Mt. Pleasant Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Mt. Pleasant Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Mount Pleasant’s leaders like to say that their city is forever “Pursuing Excellence.” That’s the town motto, as a matter of fact. In so many ways, though, the people of Mt. Pleasant have already achieved just that — excellence. It’s a city rich in natural beauty, unique history, and one-of-a-kind cultural events that set it apart from any other place in Iowa. Where else can you find an annual expo for antique agricultural equipment — and an extraordinarily well-attended one at that? As for the citizens, well, it’s no wonder they call the place Mt. Pleasant. Its people are pleasant as can be. The town may be home to only about 8,000, but tenfold turn up as tourists every year — and they all know that they can count on a warm welcome and a neighborly smile. That’s the magic of Mt. Pleasant.

The Old Thresher’s Reunion in Mt. Pleasant, IA

What happens with a small town’s population suddenly grows about thirteen times larger in one weekend? Well, in the case of the Old Thresher’s Reunion, the answer is commerce, learning, and a lot of fun.

Every fall, Mt. Pleasant hosts the Old Thresher’s Reunion, an agricultural event that attracts over 100,000 visitors from all over the world. It’s a huge boon to the area’s businesses, which often staff additional workers and bring in considerable sales for their products and services, many of which are wonderful and utterly rare. It’s a real source of lifeblood for the Mt. Pleasant community.

The event brings in big names like Brad Paisley, Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson, and LeAnn Rimes, among many others. It just goes to show that small towns can enjoy big spotlights from time to time.

Occasionally, workers or guests sustain accidental injuries during big events like these, and we always want those people to know that, in the event of unforeseen hardship, they can count on our Mt. Pleasant workers’ compensation attorney services. Of course, the vast majority of those 100,000+ people return home with nothing but new insight and meaningful memories. It’s a wonderful event, and we’re proud to have it so close to our home in Burlington.

We also like to remind people that Old Thresher’s fun isn’t limited to the autumn months. The Mt. Pleasant Heritage Museum, which features prominently in the Reunion, is actually open to the public during most of the year. It’s an enjoyable and affordable activity for families and history fans alike.

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.
