Am I Covered by Workers' Compensation?

There are two main issues involved in workers' compensation:

  • Are you an employee?
  • Were you injured on the job, or were your injuries the result of your employment?

While the answer to these questions may seem obvious, proving that your employment caused your injury can be difficult, especially in cases involving preexisting injuries. An Iowa workers' compensation lawyer can obtain medical records and other evidence that supports your claim.

You may be entitled to compensation for your medical care, loss of income, retraining costs, permanent injuries and more.

When Should I File for Workers' Comp?

First, you must notify your employer of your injury within 90 days. Failure to do so could lead to denial of benefits. Similarly, you have only two years after your injury to file a workers' compensation claim.

These are only a few of the multiple deadlines involved in a workers' comp case. Having a workers' compensation lawyer on your side can help ensure that you meet these deadlines and other requirements.
