Make certain you are treated fairly and compensated fully after an Iowa workplace injury.
In 2009, 1.5 million workers in the United States were affected by an on-the-job injury or illness to the point that they were forced to miss work, transfer jobs, or restrict their regular duties. Some faced long roads to recovery while other faced permanent disability. But each one of these millions of workers were forced to answer tough questions regarding how they were going to support their family, how they were going to regain their health, and how they were going to continue to work in the future.
In Iowa, there are specific state laws created solely to make sure that injured or ill workers are treated justly by their employers in the wake of an on-the-job accident - and that they are given financial support and fair career options in the case of a debilitating injury or condition. However, some employers and Iowa workers' compensation insurance providers will go out of their way to deny valid Iowa workers' compensation claims in an attempt to avoid making payments to injury victims and to increase their own profits.
In the days and weeks after an Iowa work-related injury, it is imperative that you know your rights as a worker and that you have a knowledgeable, experienced advocate at your side fighting for your best interests. If you have been seriously injured while on the job, Iowa workers' compensation attorney Nicholas Pothitakis can help you navigate your case, appeal a denied claim, and get you the support you deserve under the law.
