The three partners each have 35 years of experience in representing Iowa residents who need help with a challenging and highly bureaucratic process.

Overcoming Obstacles And Misconceptions On Your Behalf

Claims of depression can be a side effect to a physical work injury and possible loss of employment, or a mental "injury" can arise on its own. In many cases, depression isn't apparent for a significant period of time. Whether your workers' compensation claim is from a physical injury, chronic psychological issues or a combination of the two, you should not waste any time in speaking to your family physician.

Depression based on a mental injury can develop from a specific event that occurred at work. While stress is a constant in any work environment, the stress that triggers depression must be unusual in how it was brought about.
