The Need For a Work Injury Lawyer
Attorney Jim Lawyer is the author of the definitive Iowa workers' compensation textbook, which judges and insurance companies turn to when looking for answers on workers' compensation benefits and requirements.
In addition to workers' compensation claims, we can determine whether you are entitled to sue the party responsible for causing your accident. Third-party lawsuits can be filed against the property owner, the manufacturer of a defective product and other workers or subcontractors who acted in a negligent manner.
Regardless of the manner of your on-the-job injury in Iowa, we work hard to help you get the results you deserve.
Our experience includes workplace issues such as:
- Aggravating a pre-existing condition
- Auto and motor vehicle accidents at work or related to your job
- Head injuries
- Orthopedic injuries
- Back, shoulder, hip and knee injuries
- Spine and joint fractures
- Falls from heights
- Burns, explosions and electrical shock injuries
- Fatal workplace accidents
and death benefits for families
Did You Already Have a Partial Disability?
Iowa has a special Second Injury Fund available for people who already have a qualifying pre-existing disability but suffered an additional disability as a result of a workplace accident. Workers' compensation insurance companies are required to pay into this special fund every year. Rules for receiving money are complex, so talk to us before you try to file a claim yourself.
