Workers’ Compensation: What You Need to Know

In a blink of an eye, your ability to work and earn a living may be seriously jeopardized by an injury. If you’re injured on the job, you need to understand Iowa workers’ compensation law. Though many think it can be handled on their own, it’s simply not a do-it-yourself matter.

There is very little about a workers’ compensation claim that is simple. It goes far beyond filing paperwork and doctors visits. Hiring a workers’ compensation attorney will take all the stress away so you can concentrate on recovering from your injury.

At the Beattie Law Firm, we will be at your side from the initial filing of your workers’ compensation claim to the final outcome. And we have proven results, such as Nissen v. Cooperative Mutual Ins. Co. (Arbitration Decision 2009)

In this case, Mr. Nissen was catastrophically injured in an anhydrous ammonia explosion which caused severe burning and restrictions. The matter was tried in before a Deputy Workers’ Compensation Commissioner. After hearing the Deputy Workers’ Compensation Commissioner awarded 75% Industrial Disability.

Do you know that workers’ compensation is a no-fault system? Meaning you are entitled to benefits even if your injury was your own fault. We work hard to ensure that your medical needs are met and we also work hard to protect your job while you are recovering from an injury. Far too many times, an employer will seek retribution against an employee for filing a workers’ compensation claim by trying to prevent them from coming back. We fight hard to make sure that does not happen.
