Workers’ Compensation Representation For Injured Iowans
When you go to work everyday, you reasonably expect that your employer will keep you safe. However, accidents and repetitive stress injuries are common occurrences, especially in certain industries. In Iowa, you can file a workers’ compensation claim to obtain the settlement you need to cover your medical expenses and lost wages from missing work.
At Platt Law Firm PC, we have helped hundreds of injured workers navigate the Iowa workers’ compensation system to get the medical treatment they need as well as fair settlements or awards for their injuries. I understand how overwhelming this process can be, especially when you face a lengthy recovery after your injury. When you work with me, Nicholas Platt, and my staff, you will always receive the personal attention and support you deserve at every step of your case. I have years of experience representing clients in the Des Moines area. You can trust me to fight tirelessly for the payments you deserve according to Iowa law.
Fighting For The Compensation You Deserve
Iowa workers’ compensation laws are in place for the benefit of Iowa workers who suffer injuries on the job. However, successfully filing a claim can be a complicated process that is often more difficult than it should be. Working with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can make a huge difference in the success of your claim.
If you are injured on the job, your employer is obligated by law to provide you:
- Medical treatment
- Payment for time off work
- Mileage to your medical appointments
- Payment for any permanent disability the injury caused
- Industrial disability benefits if your ability to find work is impaired
However, your employer will not necessarily inform you of all of these obligations when you are injured. After your injury, I am available to answer your questions and address your concerns, such as:
- Who pays for my medical bills?
- Can I go to my own doctor?
- Am I being paid the correct amount while I am off work?
When you have questions or concerns, the attorney and staff at Platt Law Firm PC will always answer you promptly. I take my role as an advocate seriously. We strive to build long-lasting relationships with my clients, and I want to see you succeed. When you work with me and my staff at Platt Law Firm PC, you will always receive compassionate legal guidance and valuable support throughout the workers’ compensation process.
Hire An Experienced Advocate
The Iowa workers’ compensation system can be confusing for workers and even attorneys who don’t deal with these cases every day. If you do not have the advice of an experienced advocate, it is likely that you will not receive all the benefits that the law allows for your workers’ compensation injury.
